Two Winter’s ago I bought a groupon to the Ice Castles. Normally groupon’s do not last that long but, it so happened that they closed early that year and extended the groupon for those who have not used it yet. We had until February 1, 2013 to use it. We spontaneously decided we need to would go this weekend in hopes that the unusual warm weather would not prevent us to go. So off we headed on a 4 hour car ride. The scenery was beautiful! Here are a couple of pics I took on the way up:
I’m telling you the scenery alone makes Colorado a state worth living in!!
Anyhoo, back to our day. The kids weren’t very excited about the ride and they had no idea where we were going because we wanted it to be a surprise. Thankfully, they really enjoyed the surprise when they found out what it was. We arrived at about 3:00pm and the wonderful people there gave us a voucher to come back that night to see it lit up! And we did! It was a wonderful fun family day. I am so glad we went. I am going to leave you with a few pics from the Ice Castles…
What was your favorite spontaneous family fun day?
