Inside was beautifully decorated for Christmas and full of yummy sweet and salty treats and hot chocolate.
We arrived around 7:30 and they scooted us outside where a crowd was gathering to watch Jay Maclaskey entertain with a live ice sculpture carving. In less than 30 minutes, using a chain saw and an ice pick he transformed a 300 pound block of ice into jolly old St. Nick. The kids in the front of the crowd would scream with delight as the ice shavings would sprinkle over their heads.
A jingle bell hayride pulled by a big red tractor got us up close and personal with the light displays at the back of the ranch. They had a craft table for making personalized Christmas ornaments and a snow ball battlefield where the big kids battled it out. No lines, no big crowds, it truly felt like it was just us and a few good friends.
