Winter Carnival

Marc and Skye invited us to the Winter Carnival in McCall this past weekend. I hadn't been in years.
And by years I mean Y-E-A-R-S. Let's see...wavy hair, glasses...yep it was junior high last time I made my way to the Carnival. We gladly accepted and packed up Emily and Tay, Austin had an overnighter the previous night so he was home sawing logs, and headed north.

After getting out of the car the kids noticed some friends wandering around. And they weren't the least bit afraid of us. This one was actually, ever so slowly, walking towards the kids. I got the picture and then made them retreat to a safer locale.

We started to walk into town and noticed that somehow we had taken the same route as the parade was going. Hellooooo McCall!!
This was the actual beginning of the parade. Can you believe all the people?! I don't think I have ever seen that many people in McCall at one time. The parade was fun and full of candy and mardi gras beads being thrown.

We were completely unprepared and had no idea where all of the sculptures were. We ended up only seeing five the whole day.
Aren't we a hodge podge mess...

It has been A LONG time since I've been up there for that too. I was just telling a friend the other day I wanted to take our kids. Maybe next year. Looks like you guys had fun!
