the frozen north

Odori Park, Sapporo, Sunday, around 3 p.m.

We spent the weekend in Hokkaido, at the Sapporo Snow Festival. It snowed most of the time we were there, but we had all the right gear so we weren't cold, and it was beautiful. The boys loved the big piles of powder, and spent most of their time throwing it in each other's faces. The ice sculptures in Odori Park were something, too...

So was the giant slide (called the waku-waku slider) at the Tsudome site. We didn't see too many other grownups going down, but Terry and I waited with the boys for 40 minutes to get to the front of that line, and we weren't going to let the kids have all the fun!

will post details and more pics soon
