Visiting McCall

I love to visit McCall Idaho!

This is where my girlfriend lives 
with her husband.
We have known each other since,
I was 4 and Didi was 3.

Below is our Kindergarten picture!

Usually, Tom and I visit during the summer.
This year we decided to visit for
 McCall's world famous, 
Winter Carnival 
It takes us about 2 hours to get there 
and the
scenery was beautiful.

We didn't waste any time joining the thousands of
others, celebrating.

We looked at the ice sculptures and
took in a few of the other sights.

There were people ice fishing on Lake Payette.

For the fireworks show,
we had the best seats.
This is out on their patio.
If we got to cold,
 we'd run inside.

Next day...
We headed down to the parade,
 along with thousands of others.

The place was packed!
This is a definitely, a hometown parade.

The streets were blocked off and we hiked, walked
into town and found a perfect viewing spot..

Flags were hoisted and we all saluted.
Everyone cheered as the flag went by!

People on the floats and the princesses
 threw candy and beads.
Little kids, all bundled up in snow gear,
 would run for the loot.

It was cold but sunny! 
Best parade I've been to in years!

Didi and I went snowshoeing.
Or tried!
We laughed long and hard!
That's what you do when you know someone
 so well and for as long as we have
 (61 years!!).

Tom and I had never been to a Hockey Match.
But now we have.
I was more impressed with the

LoveYou Didi  !!
