It is that time of year again, when my husband and I start to plan our itinerary for the family's yearly visit to Sculpted Ice Works, in Lakeville, for the annual Crystal Cabin Fever. Carl, Nicholas and I have been attending Crystal Cabin Fever since 2010. Each year, visitors can view spectacular, themed ice carvings; this year's theme is Safari based!
Upon entering take a walk on the wild side through the ice maze and snap pictures of the intricately carved ice sculptures of elephants, giraffes and much more. The festival includes a giant ice slide, wine tasting, vendors, and a petting zoo! Don't forget to check out the ice carving competition! The best part about the festival is that all of these wonderful activities are included with admission.
After we have our fill of icy goodness, we will head back out on the road to our lunch destination. Our first year lunch location was Ehrhardt's Waterfront Resort Restaurant, where we enjoyed the best crab cakes ever. Last year we visited Der Jaeger for a delicious family-style German meal, and this year we will be sure to try some place new. Thankfully, the Lake Region of the Pocono Mountains is the home to many wonderful dining establishments.
After we have warmed up and our bellies are full, we plan on taking a nice scenic drive along route 402 through the Delaware State Forest. This is about the time where I will be able to tell if Nicholas has had a great day. If he has, he will surely be sound asleep before we pull out of the restaurant parking lot.
There is one thing I know for sure, our annual visit to Crystal Cabin Fever is something that the three of us thoroughly enjoy. It's a tradition that we hope will continue for a long time to come.
Until next time... Celebrate family, friends, and traditions.
