Ice Castles!

Hello everyone!

I took a trip up north this week. The first day (well, more like night) we went to some incredible ice castles. It was so so so cold out! I was glad I had my snowsuit and my mittens.

The ice structures were all lit up with flashing lights. It looked like a fairyland. I couldn't wait to get right in and explore!

The icicles were so huge- at times, I was afraid they were going to fall right on me. They looked like stalactites or stalagmites in a cave.
And they even had lights illuminating the whole thing! This light changed from red to pink to blue and then all over again. They were also playing loud music from Frozen. It made me feel like I was Elsa in her ice castle.

It was very difficult to get pictures without a flash because it was so dark, so the only pictures that actually came out of me were with the flash. 

I was so cold sitting here! I could feel my toes freezing right off along with my fingers.
Here is a photo we managed to get without a flash. I look so purple because of the light!

Overall, it was one of the coolest (no pun intended) places I have ever been. Have you ever been to ice castles? Did you go on a fun vacation recently?

Love, Emily

Hooray! It's a Snow Day!

I'm so happy that today was a snow day! I got to stay home from school all day long. At first in the morning the snow had turned into freezing rain, but it quickly changed right back into snow in the afternoon.
I spent a lot of time out in the snow. Our whole backyard was covered in snow piles as tall as me!

It's unfortunate that the freezing rain started because the snow was covered in a pretty thick layer of ice so I couldn't make any snow creatures this time.

Mostly I just sat in the snow for a while and enjoyed the fresh air while I could. Soon I got pretty cold though I was bundled up in my snow gear.

So I headed inside and put on the warmest sweatshirt I could find and made myself a nice big mug of hot chocolate with a lot of whipped cream on top.

That's pretty much how my day went! It was a lot of fun. How was your Monday? Did you have a snow day?

Love, Emily.
