A Cozy Little Ice Shanty http://www.amberarnoldphoto.com/blog/2013/1/a-cozy-little-ice-shanty A dad took his 5-year-old twin daughters on an ice fishing excursion on Monona Bay in Madison, Wisconsin. The dad's advice to parents for taking kids ice fishing is to bring lost of snacks and if you're not catching any fish, keep moving. Soon after the girls started fishing, they got hungry, and dad pulled a box of powdered donuts and juice boxes from his goodie bag. Everyone was happy in the cozy little ice shanty.   Amber Arnold/Wisconsin State Journal
