On my mom's last day in town, we spent the day in historic Smithville, NJ.  Over 60 cute little shops, a short train ride, and a Christmas light display on the water.  We started the day out with some hot chocolate.

The train wasn't running at first due to rain.  We actually spent quite a bit of time in an indoor arcade.  But then the rain stopped and the train started!

Kitchen projects with the kids.  This one is only a little messy and the kids can pretty much do it on their own.

Winter has barely begun and we've already had two small snow storms! We even had a snow day!

The answer to our "ice cream park". Some friends recommended an ice cream parlour that has a carnival theme.  Worked for us!

The mirrors were a super hit.

And then we went to a park that still had some ice on the ground from our latest snow. An "ice park".  Close enough.
