Winter Carnival

Our winter carnival isn't too grand of an affair. They have a craft/vendor display upstairs in the arena and some activities for the kids outside — little kids, nothing really for Danica whom we had for sleepover the previous night.

The bbq was going and both smelling and looking good.

This cowboy sort of guy was hanging about the bbq but wasn't the main cook. I found him interesting and took a few quick snaps.

I took some pics of the kids activities, but this is the only one I will present here — the ubiquitous pony rides.

Parking at the arena isn't all that plentiful at the best of times on a Saturday, nevermind with an extra event laid on, so they suggested parking at the marketplace and taking a wagon ride to the arena. We didn't do that, but many did.

In the meantime, JJ was playing hockey inside, so I snuck inside long enough for a few photos. He's not in this photo, but it's the best that I got in that short time.

 (Spellcheck doesn't like snuck but I do, and I also like nevermind as one word. So there.)

I like snuck! Perfectly good word!

Great portraits of the cowboy! The fellow doing the pony rides is dressed really well and know he is outside all day.

Winter carnival is an oxymoron, in my lexicon.

The horses and ponies seem to take it all in stride.

Winterlude's getting underway in the city starting on Friday.

Oops! Sorry about that. My finger hit the d just before I posted.

Ha ha - there should be a ha-ha button. Nevermind is a great word. So is snuck and a few others I can't think of right now.

Pony rides in the snow? Don't think I've ever seen that. Looks cold, but the BBQ looks mouth-watering!
