This is a bit of a "throwback" because it actually happened during the last week of January, at which time we were desperate for outdoor time and other-human interaction. It was balls cold but nobody seemed to mind (for the first 30 minutes) because there was just so much to do + see. That and the kids were high off their first parking deck/elevator ride combo.
Big names like Rosie O'Donell and Sinbad were in town for a Comedy Fest and that shut down the otherwise traffic-jammed Front St. for foot traffic and winter activities: ice golf, sled-dog races, ice sculptures, zip lines, sledding, ice skating, food + drink.
Some of our favorite people met us there with their daughter the boys' age. We all had fun sharing golf holes and watching the zip-liners together.
Also, we ran into an "off-duty" clown while chilling on some ice benches, waiting for a porta-john. She gave the kids some balloon animal "duds", explained that it was her Birthday and went off to celebrate on the Ferris Wheel. Happy Day
