Winter Games

Camping in the winter. It is an experience...

One thing you can't really do is picnic.

These are photos of the resort we are members of. You can store your camper there year round. Some people even come there during the winter to camp. Crazy people!

We went over there to go to the University of Okoboji Winter Games. I didn't know what there were more of - Drunks or Snowmobiles.

A lot of the activities take place on the lake. That's right. This is ON THE LAKE.

The lake may be frozen solid (16 1/2 inches. A little less than usual.), but there is still quite a bit of snow. As this lucky person found out the hard way.

Here are my boys. The little one was a little hesitant about going out onto the lake.

Here is me. I would like to say I have on a puffy coat, but I guess I'm the one who is puffy. I'm gonna work on that.

And here is the crack I saw that made me say, "Okay! We're done here. Let's move on, shall we?"

  1. That is a wussy crack. It's been years since I spent an entire winter gazing at a frozen lake, but I have to admit I miss the sounds of the lake cracking - sometimes it's louder than the loudest boom of thunder. LOVE IT!
