On Day 5 of our Christmas Countdown, we decided it would be fun to participate in the Westerly, RI downtown Christmas Stroll. Westerly is a small town not far from our house, and it has all kinds of cool downtown shops.
Although the stroll wasn't quite all that had been promised in the write-ups online (I never saw the horse-drawn hay ride or live music, and the luminaries had mostly been blown out by the wind), it was still a fun evening. After strolling around and mostly window shopping, as we had three pairs of hands that would have just loved to touch all the cool breakables in the stores, we decided to visit Santa at Mel's Downtown Creamery.
After meeting Santa, the kids decided they had warmed up enough for ice cream, so we decided to have a little treat before heading home.

|Everyone says Ray looks just like his dad, do you see it?|

Do you like ice cream in the winter, or do you think of it as purely a summertime treat?
