This is why blogging is not my full time job. Pretty sure I’d be fired for not showing up for work during the last 3 or so weeks. 🙂
Sorry ’bout dat.
Sometimes life just happens. March started off a bit crummy for us. I was sick, our car was hit by a snowmobile and totaled it, then James got sick. I think we are past the hump now. Here are a few fun things we have managed to fit it.
Fairbanks hosted this year’s Arctic Winter Games which is more or less the Olympics for young athletes living in the arctic circle. We had visitors from Greenland, Russia, Canada, etc. It’s a pretty big deal!
Unfortunately, with working and the whole car incident, I was only able to make it to the figure skating final ceremonies. I would have loved to see more of it!
ICE PARK! World champion ice sculptures get together and compete in ice carving plus it’s an actual park with slides and all! I have wanted to check this out since it opened at the end of February…
Well we finally made it and I’m so glad we did. The ice sculptures were amazing, albeit a little melted since it’s been so warm here. Sad we were not able to see them in their full glory.
Um, yea. It’s a turtle bowl. I don’t know if the world can get any cooler. 🙂
And for some reason I thought this water bottle was super cool.
My man being sappy. 🙂
The ice slides that we couldn’t go down because we don’t own a sled.
So instead we enjoyed the little kid version. 🙂 Dude these things are fast!
It was a good time.
After the ice park we went downtown to run an errand and just happened to catch a fur auction and the end of a dog sled race. I just gotta say…I love Alaska. So quirky. And I love quirky.
