For this months January blog circle, I took the kids to visit Stillwater MN to check out the ice castle. I grew up visiting the ice castle when they use to do them on Harriet Island in Saint Paul back in the 90s, so my expectations were different than what we ended up seeing. But over all we had a blast, although different than what I expected it was still very neat. It would have been fun to go at night when it’s all lit up and they have fire dancers, something we may try for next year. It was cool to see the blue hues of the ice though during the day, and it felt so much taller when you were inside walking through it. During the day they had Ana and Elsa posing for pictures, so if you have a child that likes the movie Frozen they will love this photo op! We also enjoyed walking around, playing in the snow while we waited for our turn to go into the castle. Stillwater has always been a favorite town to visit, even though it is a bit of a drive for us. If you are looking for a winter activity to do with your family outside, I would definitely recommend visiting still water while the ice castle is still there. Hopefully it doesn’t melt soon as the weather has been so nice lately!
Yet another fun outing, thanks for taking the time to read my blog and looking through my images. Be sure to circle through all of the other Minnesota adventures, next up is Jo Davis.
