I took the girls to Nashville, TN to see the Madagascar ICE! show.
If you’ve never heard of the ICE! shows before, the basics are this:
Tons and tons of ice are carved by artists from Harbin, China to create multiple scenes that depict a popular movie or cartoon.
This year’s theme was Merry Madagascar.
Each person, including kids, receives a parka to endure the truly freezing indoor temperatures.
And when you have mini-kids like I do? The kiddie parkas drag on the floor and have sleeves twice as long as their arms.
Just a few of the photos from the show.
Everything you see – even the bookshelf and fireplace – were carved from ice.
The highlight of the visit were the ice slides. Yes, the artists even carve extremely slippery slides made completely from ice for your sliding – and frozen butt – pleasure. Both Kate and Maddie wiped out on their descents, though only Kate ended up with a bruised hip and swollen and scraped cheek.
It’s rough having fun.
