Beautiful Things

We are just getting over the two-week crud and over the last couple of days the world has shifted back into beautiful. I am back at the gym, the snow melting off the roof sounds like rain all day long, and there are beautiful things all around. I opened a perfect avocado today, perhaps a random fact, but it was another gorgeous thing I thought was worth mentioning. Above are a few pictures of things I think are beautiful.

Mia Has Fun

We visited the World Ice Art Championships on Sunday night. They just finished the multi-block portion of the competition so we decided it was the perfect time to go. It was the warmest I've been in several years due to the weather and my new amazing snowpants. The kid's section was very impressive with slides, spinning ice nests, ice tunnels and a sledding hill with lighted tracks! Of course the warm-up hut with hot cocoa and indoor plumbing was also fun.

We went on our snowpants, but the kids who used sleds went super-fast down these tracks.

Mia's imitation of Lady Liberty. She gets so excited every time we see a picture of her, ever since she got to see the real one in New York. We crack up whenever she does this, she holds perfectly still and gets stoic; it's awesome!
