Most of the pictures from this entry are focused on ice sculptures, but in reality they weren't the focus of the visit.
As usual, Betsy's family was very accommodating during my stay. They let me stay in the newly furnished, and spotless, guest room. We spent time playing board games, watching movies, visiting grandparents and eating lots of delicious food. On Saturday I watched one of the best football games, with one of the worst endings, I've ever seen. Luckily the night didn't just end with an unfortunate Packers loss, but we then popped in Pixar's 'UP' which is a near flawless animated movie.
I also saw ice fishers for the first time - very exciting
We also had a moment to meet Karen (my former summer camp supervisor/life mentor) for coffee and so I had the chance to say one last goodbye before heading West. My car was fully stocked with candy and cookies and the Snellers sent me on my way.
Now I'm in Des Monies taking a quick break to finish this entry before driving to Omaha to meet Jodie and Jason at their house for the night. A longer post about the trip through Illinois and Iowa to come later.
