Ely Winter Festival

     You’ve got to find a way to have fun in the winter and we found out a town an hour north of us was having their annual winter festival! We aren’t big winter fans, (I know, it’s ironic since we live in Minnesota) but there aren’t many places where you can see beautiful snow sculptures! I had a chance to see them last year but it had gotten warm and they were all half melted.image

      You can’t see it real well but this first pic is a giant pair of hands! The kids thought it would be cool to walk through them! Zailey isn’t quite sure about walking in the snow yet.

     Beth found her favorite sculture right away! An awesome turtle! A rare pic I was able to get of her. Ain’t she beautiful! This was about as close as Zaden comes to a camera! That’s him walking away in his hood.

Zack and Zander visiting Old Mother Hubbard

The boys found the old woman in the shoe. We warned them about not touching anything and they took it VERY seriously. This is as close as they would get! Good boys. lol

I convinced Zack to try to get in the home without touching it. He was VERY cautious. He told us he was too big so we moved on.

Zander found this sculture. I didn’t get a chance to see what it was all about but it was very cool looking. Lots of detail and the head on top was awesome! This is Zander smiling. hahaha

There were all kinds of different sculptures. This was one of my favorites, a silly croc with his tongue hanging out.

Some were just plain cool! A couple of racers up on an embankment!

A kayaker riding a wave! So cool!

Zailey was quite uneasy about walking in the snow. She was very unsure of it… or was it the dragon behind her? I’m not sure.

But by the end, she was happy go lucky and thought this was kinda cool! It helps having such an awesome big brother that adores his sister!
