Frosty The Snowman

And this post is from early January. We went to the Gaylord ICE! exhibit at the very last minute. I think it was the last weekend it was in town. As usual, it was great!

And very cold.....but surprisingly not crowded.

This year Sophia went down the ice slide.

It was very, very slow.

Yes, I actually got in a picture!

They had an ice carver on site to demonstrate the carving process.

And of course it ends with the manger scene.

It was fun, but we're usually in such a rush to get through it that it's over before you know it.

The Zoo in January

So I'm a little in blogging about Sophia. This post is from January. We got half price tickets to the zoo from Girl Scouts. So on a beautiful January afternoon, we headed to the zoo at 10. It was empty. No fighting the crowds or the heat like we usually do in the summer. 

And all the animals were out and playing (or at least actively doing something).

Here's the bench dedicated to my mom's boss who donated the money for the penguin house update a few years ago.

It was a good day. We were able to see everything by 1 just as the crowds started to file in.
