    What a GREAT idea! We try to get to the snow every year but with being pregnant so much, I have not been able to ski – and this year we didn't make it for Christmas either. I was honestly trying to figure out how to get our 2 year old to snow and this solves my problem!! Thank you!!

    What an informative blog! Thanks for the info on the free ice skating. My son went with his best friend last weekend – it was their first time – and even though he fell numerous times, he had a blast! I'd love to take him and skate with him…that's one thing that he & I have never done together. Thanks again! 😉
