yesterday we were able to go to fete de glace in historic st. charles. downtown st. charles is a quaint spot with cobblestone streets & lovely boutiques. this is the third year we have been to this ice sculpting competition & it is always a fun time. my iphone pictures won't even begin to do justice of the details that go into these carvings. it always amazes me!
|but first, coffee!|
|this castle took first place in the team competition.|
|the deep sea diver took 2nd in the team competition. it was my favorite!|
|we tried "grandma's cookies" & they tasted warm, fresh, & homemade. can't go wrong with that!|
|my purchase of the day. i've recently become obsessed with almond syrup....like to the point i think i need to carry this in my purse to have with me at all times.|
|and now it's time for spontaneous combustion. *inside joke*|
what a lovely winter day!
