Most towns offer snow gratis. It's the perk (or pest) of the location. In order for kids to enjoy the wonders it has to offer
wet socks, frostbite they need to go no further than the yard. Not so in Sunnyville.
Snow is such a rare commodity that youngest has never witnessed the white stuff falling ever. While most people over the age of 20 see this as a positive, my kids are not 20 and bemoan their snowless fate yearly
while mom does the happy dance and sends gentle jibes to far away family This year we chose to find snow...
First, mom had to coupon shop. Honestly. I did. Snow and cold are pricey here. After driving 2 hours, we arrived...
The parkas were a side perk of spending an hour in the 9 degree exhibit.
We toured the sculptors. "Night Before Christmas" was the theme.
No trip to the ice would be worth its salt without an ice slide.
Of course we couldn't forget to visit the courtyard.
Now this weather is more my speed.
Then we went to play in the "snow" (I use the term loosely)
A great time for all.
All-in-all it was worth the drive and now Youngest tells me she can't wait to see real snow. I guess she doesn't realize those wet knees and gloves are not so much fun when it is actually cold!
