Recently my friend said, "the ironic thing about Americans making fun of Canada is Minnesota." Oh, how right he was. Thought I'd post some pics of the shenanigans we've been up to to keep ourselves busy in the depths of MN winter!
Of course... we ski & snowboard... but that's a given.

We have autonomous snowplow competitions.

We have ice queen pageants.

We have something called "crashed ice" which involves men going down a huge obstacle course made of ice on hockey skates.

You can see the crashed ice course in the background!

We make replicas of "crashed ice" out of ice.

We have huge beer tasting festivals that take place outside... all day.

Someone wore this brilliant accessory to the beer dabbler.

We vacation on frozen lakes.

Best of all... we play ice bocce. It's hard to explain but it's a combination of curling/bowling/bocce ball. Basically we hurl split logs down the ice.

Prepping the lane.

Next week Drew is in an "ice golf" tournament with his buddies & my cousin is doing the polar plunge.
Gotta love it!
