Winter "Slush" Fest!!!!









Every year at my parent's lake house there is a Winter Festival on the lake. This year it was a "Slush" fest. I discovered that my boots are only water resistant not water proof! Will loved playing in the sloppy, wet mess and managed to have a snow ball fight and get a sled ride from Papa. Kane did his part and just stood there and observed, but he had to be a part of the action. It is hard to believe that we were on the lake and that in a several months it will be all thawed out. It was surreal seeing cars driving on the ice. So here are a few questions for you.

Would you take your car on a lake even if they say it is a frozen 12 inches deep? (I wouldn't!!!)

Do you have any fun winter activities? (I like snowshoeing even though I have only done it once)

Do you like snowmobiling? (It seems boring to me but hubby loves it and rides for hours at a time)

I am a warm weather girl and am still trying to figure out why on earth we live in the Midwest, I don't like winter and am sick of it!!!

P.S. I will be announcing the Featured Reader winner later today, so be sure to check back. I need to cut up over 135 entires and pull a name randomly, anyone want to help?

My sister lives in upstate NY on a lake:) It is amazing to me that you can drive on that! We actually had some snow here in AZ last night!

Great photos! What a fun day!

I can tell you that I am not sorry to see all of our snow melted away. We had a wicked winter.

Love all pictures! I think I would like snowmobiling since I like 4 wheeling. I'd definitely have to travel somewhere to do it though!

I'll bet you couldn't have gone out on that very same lake today! We hardly have any signs of snow here all the sudden. We're right by Lake Michigan. The snow will be back but this little warm burst sure was nice!

Have a great week!

I'd be with Kane... standing there and observing, happy to not be a part of the action, LOL!

I lived in Jackson, MI for 8 years... but that was over 20 years ago! I do remember going sledding and making snow forts.
