Wordless Wednesday – Winterlude 2011

Every winter, Ottawa has a huge event called Winterlude.  There are lots of things to see and do, such as an ice sculpture contest that attracts competitors from around the world; skating on the world’s longest outdoor skating rink; and of course, eating.  My husband, daughter, father in law and I went to check out a few of the sites today and even though it was freezing outside, we still had a good time for a Tuesday morning! 

Weekends are much busier, so going during the week meant that our toddler could run around and not get in the way (or worse, trampled!).  Here’s some of what we saw!  Check out Winterlude’s website for more information!

      It was freezing, I think it was close to -20 degrees Celcius with the wind!

      That’s my favourite kind too! I knew Ashlyn would want to share it though, and I needed her to nap this afternoon so the chocolate overload seemed like a bad idea LOL

    Too cold for me, that’s for sure. But I’m glad you had a good time!

    Some day I want to bring the kids to Winterlude. Or just Ottawa! Can you believe I have never been to Ottawa? Bad Canadian/Ontarian!
