McCall Winter Carnival 2014

Think about the last snowman you created. Was it spectacular?

 

Well, the annual McCall Winter Carnival has come and gone. I don’t know if they had as many exhibits as usual, but the ones they did have were very artistic and definitely spectacular.

We took our grandsons Andrew and Haydon to enjoy the ice carvings.

It doesn’t get much better than this.  A week with two of the greatest friends and scenery to die for.  Sunsets that glow, snorkeling with yellow, turquoise, neon blue, and red fish.  Beaches that go on forever.  And the best part was, it was during the winter in Boise. Great escape.

Here’s to Good Friends!
