Falling on your butt happens.

In life we fall down. It happens. We all have crashed at some point. Some of us more than others.  Well this New Year’s Day the boys learned this fact literally. We made the most of this beautiful, unusually warm day and headed out to explore the sights, the sounds and the ICE.

But before the ice let’s look at the exhibits….

He LOVED the gingerbread masterpiece creations.  He was pointing out Sponge Bob’s house.

 

You must be joking.  I am not, I repeat NOT getting on the ICE…no way! I am bred for the tropics.

 

I see the hubby’s reflection

 

Rows of Gingerbread homes

 

Jumps of excitement over the house creations

 

A form of Art.  Now when can we eat them?  We are 100% recovered.                                           
                                                   
an indoor exhibit of houses galore                                                                                                                                          
               
Santa ornament camouflaged in the tree                                                                
                                                                             
And not so camouflaged.                                                                                                                                                         

 

Santa’s from around the world                                                                                                                                             

 

How the Italians do it…a bit troubling indeed.                                                                                                                             

 

La Befana                                                                                                                                                                                       

 

Now this is a frightening sight for anyone especially a child! She looks like she requires the Heimlich maneuver.                                                                                                                                                                         

 

 The hubby’s favorite.  Reindeer butt.   Disturbing.                                                                                                                                                                

 

Looking up                                                                                                                                                                                    

 

and up                                                                                                                                                                                            

 

and under                                                                                                                                                                                      

 

Getting ready to hit the ice

                 

 

Whoa, this is harder than it looks – getting their skate legs
                                                                                         

 

I can’t let go!!!
                                                                                                                                                                              

 

I must hold on!  I have a death grip on this rail.
                                                                                                                     
I am getting tired.  This is hard!
                                                                                                                                          

 

Older bro is gaining momentum but I keep falling!
                                                                                                      

 

I got this!  No problem! And it’s so hot that I can take off my coat!  Mom somehow failed to capture all of the butt falling moments but there were several and I saw stars.
                                                                 
                                                      
A hard fall will make you see things like lights around trees…
                                                                              
                                                                                            

I was taking the pictures but are you wondering about the rest of the family? Just in case you are….

                                                                                                                                                                                  

                         
Monitoring things from the sidelines…the safe way to be.
                                                                                                            

 

But wait, Texting???
                                                                                                                                                                               
 

 

And Drinking??
                                                                                                                                                                                      
 

 

She must have found a STARBUCKS!!!


 

Back outside to the beauty for a short while before it is over.
                                                                                               
Good-bye for another year…and we welcome 2011!!!
                                                                                                                  

From our family to yours....

Happy New Year!!
