Ice Show

Our uncle from the UK came over this weekend to attend a conference this week. Maw and Paw were going to take him to the new Audubon Society thingee here in Dallas, but it was windy and chilly on Saturday, they so went to the Gaylord Resort over in Grapevine to check it out. And the yearly Ice Show was open, so they went to it and about froze to death. They give you coats to wear, but it was so cold. It was 4F there. Maw hasn't been that cold in quite some time! Anyway, here are some pictures!

Here in Minneapolis we have the Winter Carnival every year. Ice carvings, and games & parades, medallion hunt, stuff like that. Mom has never gone, she tries to avoid winter like the plague. Dashing from the house to car to store & back is as much as she can handle.

I know you are somewhere outside of Dallas and so are we! We have been hearing about this Ice Show on TV. After looking at your Pictures, I think Mom should go see it! I'll tell Dad to dress warm!

Cool ice show! I can't imagine why anyone would want to go down the ice slide though. I've slipped on enough ice, there's no way that would be tempting :-p
