last month, we bought a groupon to go to the ice castle at mall of america with our former co-workers from community ed. last night we went and while it was a balmy 36 degrees in the morning, it was much much colder and windier by the evening. i think we all underestimated how cold it would feel out there.
the ice castle was...ok. to be honest, i was expecting it to be cooler. it sort of looked like they just poured a bunch of water over everything and let it freeze. i was envisioning ice "bricks" or sculptures or something. the other weird thing is that it's not even finished yet, but it's open to the public. but we still had a good time. and when we were done, we went into mall of america to warm up. which may or may not have included ice cream consumption for some of us. virtually nothing can come between me and my love of ice cream. ;)
