Strafford’s Winter Carnival

This past weekend was Strafford’s Annual Winter Carnival with the theme “Way Back When”. Vermont Public Radio had stated earlier in the week that we’d had 22 days of overcast so we were due some sunshine and couldn’t have asked for more perfect weather. We had lots of snow on the ground, temperatures in the forties, blue skies and full sun all weekend long. Some even had sunburns by Sunday’s award dinner. The fun and sunshine was just what we needed to lift those gloomy winter blues.

At the bonfire the girls were out numbered by the boys having a snow ball fight so they started making snow sculptures with the crusty snow. It was very sweet to see their creations and watch them working so intensely.

Oh, and I have to brag about the awesome phone sculpture made by some pretty awesome lady friends of mine. They totally rocked it wouldn’t you say?
