Last weekend, we had a long weekend, so I brought the kids to see the Ice Castle at Loon Mountain. We went up at around noon, after the kids had lunch. It didn’t take as much time to get there as I thought – only about an hour. We had to take a bus from the parking lot to the actual ice castle. They had built the ice castle next to the outdoor adventures building and it was amazing. I’ve never seen anything like it. We saw it twice -once during the day and once at night when it was all lit up. It was made completely of snow and ice, obviously. At various points, the ice met above our heads and there were tremendously large icicles hanging over our heads. Also, there were parts of the structure that allowed the kids to crawl through the structure and slide down ice slides surrounded by ice. The kids LOVED it and were also in love with the life size carving of Olaf from the movie Frozen that they found hanging out around one of the corners. Afterwards, we had nachos in Babe’s and then had dinner at The Common Man. They had a great time.
On Friday, I had a 504 meeting at Nate’s school for him. It’s so hard to believe that he’s going into first grade. We met with the guidance counselor and school nurse and then started things rolling. We saw one of the classrooms that had a Bose surround sound system. I was very impressed.
