For the first time ever, I went to the McCall Winter Carnival last weekend. Hailey and I met Avery there to celebrate her 25th birthday. We had fun, but I have to say it was cold, wet, slushy and you have to park and walk quite far. Maybe I’m just not an outdoor winter sort of person. If you go, dress warm and have good traction on your shoes. Lots of people out and about, so the walkways are very icy. I have lots of opinions on the event, but I’ll keep them for our one-on-one conversations.

I did enjoy the ice sculptures I saw, especially the Iditarod one that won first place, set up at Ruby’s Kitchen. We saw it Friday and sadly, it was vandalized Saturday. There certainly are some talented artists.
