We had a great day today with two events. This morning Kevin, Tyler and I went to the Snow Sculpting Championship in Lake Geneva, and this afternoon we had a birthday party for Kevin, who turns the big one-four tomorrow. The snow sculptures were very nice this year, and we took a lot of photos. Instead of sorting through them and posting the best ones, I just named and uploaded (still uploading as of 6:24pm) them all. That way you can get all the angles and details we saw ourselves. 116 photos in all. I just found out the winners too, and that news was a little disappointing, in my opinion. Usually we can pick which one is going to win each year, but I guess this year several of them were excellent and it was probably a close race.
I took pictures at Kevin’s birthday party as well, so I’ll be uploading those next. Matt made an awesome giant ice-cream-filled Oreo cookie cake for his birthday! Sandy also made a Cherry Chip cake for the party to give everyone some options. We had Pizza, then the cakes, watched a Jeff Dunham video, then Kevin opened his gifts.
Oh, and US National Snow Sculpting now has a Facebook page, which is where I found out who the winners are. I have re-named and re-ordered the photos, so the first three sculptures are the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners, and the People’s Choice winner is further down the set, in alphabetical order.
