Winter Milestone’s with Babies ‘R’ Us & Great New Deals! {Plus Babies ‘R’ Us Prize Pack Giveaway!}

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of P&G, and Babies “R” Us. All opinions are 100% mine.

We have had such a fun winter! We celebrated Christmas, and my kids were able to play in the snow for the first time. We also had a few more “first” milestones this winter. We took the whole family to ride the Polar Express and a few weeks ago we had just a Mommy, Daddy date with Hayden to the Ice Castles.

Hayden and Halli loved riding the Polar Express to the North Pole and meeting Santa. They rode the train in their pj’s, and met real elves that rode with us the whole way. We had hot cocoa and cookies, we saw reindeer, and then met the big guy himself!

Santa met with each child on the bus and gave them a special bell just like the one from the book. It was so magical. Hayden absolutely loved it and quickly told Santa exactly what he wanted, but Halli was a little unsure. She only liked him from far away and when he wasn’t looking in her direction.

The Ice Castles with Hayden was also so much fun…and freeeeezing! Ice Castles are amazing structures that are made of ice and lights. They tower above you and are so fun to squeeze, crawl, and even slide through.

They light up and play along with the music that is going on in the castle. Hayden had a blast! There was even an ice throne for him to sit on and he loved sliding down the ice slides over and over again.

There were tunnels and secret passages to squeeze through. Visiting the Ice Castle will definitely be a family tradition we do year after year. It was such a fun date to have with my little man.
