We have a lot of outdoor, winter activities this first weekend of 2020.

Indoor activities include a Bridal Show, a Model Railroad Show, Finding Your Roots, a show at the Planetarium, Comedy, the Symphony, and Basketball. A weekend full of fun things to do.
Getting ready for the holidays will probably be everyone’s main priority, but we all need a break. There are several things to do around West Michigan this weekend...from Christmas events, to outdoor activities, comedy, ice cream, and more!

It's been frickin' freezing out for the past couple of days hasn't it? I stood outside for maybe about 10 minutes and my earlobes were on fire from being cold! While for everyday life it sucks, but for Pond Hockey 2015, we couldn't ask for better weather.
I was never really into sports as a young kid. I enjoyed going outside, sledding on hills, throwing snowballs, etc. Even my immediate family are not really sports people, so I didn't grow up with it.
What I did grow up with, was video games, and Nintendo had the BEST sports game on the original NES.
