January 07 | Ice Park
It's freezing today and it made me think of the ice park. Every spring (spring being a loose term up here) people come from around the world to create beautiful sculptures in ice.

When Melissa was visiting for spring break we all (Bridger, Valette, Damon, Dana and Melissa) debated going to the Ice Park. We finally decided to go and did we have fun! We started the tour in the Kiddie Park (of course). We went through the ice maze, slid down the ice slides, climbed on the ice train, tried to ride on the ice merry-go-round (it was frozen stuck, go figure) and basically had a really great time.

At one point Melissa and Bridger climbed through the "ice worm" - a hollow, long, square tube of ice. I took this fabulous picture of Melissa looking up through the clear ice - she had this great smile and looked like she had been frozen in an ice cube.

We walked through the rest of the park and admired all the art - people really have great imaginations! We ended up not going back that evening to see all the sculptures lit by colored lights.

I'm so glad now we made the decision to go to the park. We have wonderful pictures and I have this great memory of Melissa to hold on to. It scares me to think we almost missed the opportunity to make this memory.

Melissa, I love you and miss you very much.
