    First, let me tell you a story of how stupid I am....then pictures, LOTS of pictures. I promise.

     Safeway was having a deal on diapers today ($5.00 for 29 of them.) The Bug and I went to pick some up after his 9,937 doctor appointment. After leaving, we were driving up to meet some friends at the Archaeology conference. I was late, and the roads were good. NOT going fast (hello, baby in the car) but not doing my normal 10 miles below the speed limit.

     On our way to pick them up there was a train, so I did a quick U-turn and went on the highway so we wouldn't be too late. We picked up our friends, and went on our way again. The Bug started crying, so I looked for my wallet to hand him. He likes playing with it. No wallet. He started screaming and I remembered where I last saw my Safeway...on the roof of the car....UGH. I started picturing my beloved Starbucks card, GONE, my credit cards needing to be canceled, ALL the fun stuff that happens when you lose your wallet. I jumped out of the car, and do you know what was on the roof of my car? I HAVE NO IDEA HOW.

     (I'll leave out the part where I did it again later on...I need a purse.)

     This afternoon we went to the Ice Park, where they have the World Ice Carving Championships. It was SO MUCH FUN. I had on jeans, so got a little chilly, but SO MUCH FUN. We bundled the Bug up really well in his stroller and with blankets and wandered around. Bug passed out about 3 minutes after we got there. There were AMAZING ice sculptures, spinning cups (you provide the spinning power) and ice slides. The slides were so much fun. Bug woke up towards the end and his daddy took him down a baby slide. He thought it was the BEST.THING.EVER, but we didn't want him in the cold for too long, so we left soon after. It was really cool (ha, get it, cool, ice, get it?)

Ok. I promised photos...


  1. OMG the wallet!!! Yay Safeway and $5 Friday (I work for them, so I'm biased, lol). Those ice sculptures are incredible!

  2. I laughed at your comment about your starbucks card. YUP, I'd be more sad about that than anything else, too! I'm glad all was safe and sound on the roof of your car.

  3. The ice is incredible! I've done the same move with expensive phones before, I've finally trained myself to not set stuff on top of the car;)

  4. Early St. Patrick's Day luck?! (P.S. That is the COOLEST park!)
