Pond Skimming and Intense Hopscotching

A couple weeks back we went to a pond-skimming school thing. It was crazy. I didn't know what it was, so for those of you who don't... there was a gigantic mound of snow on top of an already huge, steep hill (the same hill we went ice-blocking last semester). At the bottom of the hill there was a giant pool of water. The goal for all of the people was to make it to the end of the pool without falling into the water. Everyone wore costumes, there were different prizes for crazy things (e.g. making it across the pond, best costume, best wipe-out, etc.), there were over 100 contestants (we only stayed for the first hour and only around 25 people had gone), and people had a bunch of different modes of transportation (snowboards, skis, intertubes, garbage lids, and one guy was on a chair!). Luckily, it wasn't snowing and it wasn't near as cold as it could have been. I really don't know how someone didn't die or get frostbite or something. Needless to say, it was hilarious.
Sorry if the pictures didn't turn out too well.
Here are a few of my faves:

Meet Cupid (I think it was a week before Vday or something).
Cat in the Hat.
Whoopee-cushion Man
There was an insane amount of people there. This is only one of the corners of people.
Here is my favorite run. We saw them walking up the hill with this chair, so we waited for this guy before we left.

We have some pretty awesome new neighbors: Chelsea, Claire, and Becca. They are crazy, loud, laughy, nice, and just overall very entertaining. They decided that we should make a hop-scotch on the balcony outside our dorms. The weather was super nice to us yesterday (yet again :) !!!) It took a pretty long time actually. We were quite creative with it, so it turned out pretty intense and tiring. Here is Sara making the first run. The other girls are behind her. Oh, and you might want to turn the volume down before you watch this, it sounds a little obnoxious. Enjoy :)
