Rachel and I now have a new phrase for our kids when they complain- “At least its not as bad as the Ice Show”. The show itself was great. It was the hour and 40 minute wait in line with six kids who were tired, hungry, and not wanting to stand that took its toll. We go to the Ice Show every year and the most I have ever waited before was 45 minutes. This year our tickets were for Friday, the day after Thanksgiving. We now know that date must be the busiest day of the year for the Ice show. Rachel’s girls didn’t do as well with the cold. We got through the ice show fast with them. They are used to Florida weather, so nine degrees was a bit too cold for them, even with all the winter gear they were wearing. Lydia said her eyeballs hurt because they were freezing open. A bit dramatic, but it is pretty cold in the Ice show. My kids loved it. They don’t seem to even notice the cold. I kept having to put their winter hats back on them. I am glad we went, but next time we may chose a different date.
The redeeming factor of the whole excursion was the sleeding. That was a blast! Rachel and I went with the kids too. We went a bunch of times until the kids were officially worn out and ready to go home and go to bed. Success!
