Ice Castles Great during the day or at night     by Michelle Hiatt - Mar 5th, 2017
I was happy to send a fun family who had never gone before. Their overall impression was a good one. They attended at night, in the dark, and thought that made it imaginative and magical. We have thought that in the past, as well. It is two very different experiences if you go during the day or at night.… read full review here

Ice Castles Review: Ice Castles     by Jessica Shallow-Miller - Mar 3rd, 2017
The Ice Castles experience wasn't open for very long in Minnesota this year. Last year we missed out on it because they closed just two days before we were supposed to go. This year they had closed briefly in January because the weather was warm and the castles were melting and they couldn't keep adding more ice to them. Thankfully they reopened and continue to grow the castles and t… read full review here

Ice Castles Family Fun at Ice Castles in Lincoln, NH     by Natalie McMenamin - Feb 24th, 2017
On our recent trip up north for February school vacation, we took a detour to Lincoln, New Hampshire to check out the handmade Ice Castles. These Ice Castles, handcrafted from ice, are currently offered in 5 locations: UT, NH, MN, WI and AB and although we have had some unseasonably warm weather, these Ice Castles are still standing tall and are worth a look in person!   Check out their web… read full review here

This is a sponsored post. I have been compensated fro attending the Minnesota Ice Castles, but all opinions are my own. We were in desperate need for some family time. Like we haven't had a family vacation EVER. Work, livestock, farming, babies, school and the list could go on of reasons why we just haven't slipped away for a little bit for just our little family of five. Finally the o… read full review here

Ice Castles Amazing Ice Castles in Wisconsin Dells     by Cheryl Eugenio - Feb 11th, 2017
When we heard Ice Castles were somewhat close to our area - we knew we had to see them in person. So we decided a road trip would be in order to view the Ice Castles in Wisconsin Dells. Did it disappoint? Definitely not. The Wisconsin Dells Ice Castles Location boasts a convenient spot right on a Mt. Olympus property (look for the Trojan horse) and can be seen from the busy road. Some highlights … read full review here

The Ice Castles in Lincoln, New Hampshire are impressive and magical!  We had the chance to visit this amazing winter wonderland last weekend and see it up close and personal. This frozen fortress of over 25,000,000 pounds of ice is man made. It all started with some strategically hand placed icicles and running water. The end result is unbelievable. The idea for Ice Castles came from … read full review here

Ice Castles Ice Castles In Lincoln New Hampshire     by Jalisa Harris - Feb 3rd, 2017
  This past weekend I attended Ice Castles in Lincoln, NH. If you’re a fan of the White Mountains this is a must see.  There is a cold difference before heading in compared to just sitting outside. All in all it will be a cold visit. You do need to arrive 30 minutes before your alloted time in order to be allowed in. Our tickets were timed for 12:30p… read full review here

Ice Castles Family Fun at the Ice Castles     by Kathy Blouin-Potvin - Jan 25th, 2017
Disclosure: I received tickets in exchange for a post. The opinions are all 100% my own. I’m not the biggest fan of winter, but there are some activities that I love that can only be done in winter. One of those is being able to go sledding with my kids. That is always a blast. You can’t do that without snow either, so I brave the cold so that I can slide with them every year d… read full review here

Ozzy has been going to basketball games since he was seven months old. We always said we weren’t going to push any sports in him, but the Minnesota Lynx don’t count in that little rule of ours.

We checked in right away so we could get all set-up before the event officially started. There were some glitches to getting online at the beginning of the game. This caused some frustration for Eldest and Princess. Once things got rolling it was hard to figure out and play by the Super League Gaming rules. I think in part that was due to mom and dad not taking more time to watch the instructio… read full review here
