Ice Sculptures

Over spring break the big boys hockey team participated in the Alaska State Hockey Championships in Fairbanks Alaska.  We all went as a family and loved watching all the hockey games but we were also able to take in many other things while there.  Fairbanks hosts the world's largest ice sculpting competition.  The weather was cold but the sun was shinning so the sculptures were amazing to see.  People come from all over the world to participate in this competition.  There are tons of different categories that include making sculptures from even one single block of ice.  There was so many things for the kids (and adults) to climb on and enjoy.  The sculptures were honestly breathtaking and I was flabbergasted by the amount of detail and beauty.

 The Mad Hatter's Tea Party!  The detail was phenomenal!  I stood there is awe for quite some time just taking it in.

I love how the light is gleaming on this one and making it look almost magical.

The kids had an amazing time on the ice slides.  I love when you get home and you find a picture on your camera that just captures the excitement of the day.

Just some Alaskan kids enjoying the weather on some Alaskan furniture.

I love that we got to explore something truly this creative as a family.  Thank you Alaska for another great adventure we won't ever forget!

as a side note, who could ever forget seeing a hat like this. I was a little scared at first!
