ASHWAUBENON - These past few weeks haven't offered the kind of weather where people can spend more than a few hours outdoors.

But that doesn't mean people aren't finding other ways to get out of the house.

For Katie Fruzen Sir Bounce-A-Lots in Ashwaubenon, is where she likes to bring her 2-year-old son.

"We usually spend a lot of time outside, but it's too cold, and I don't like to bring him outside. He's only two so this is a good, kind of, indoor place to run around and be inside and not get too cold," said Fruzen.

Kids also seemed to be having a great time.

"I like bouncing in bouncy houses, going down slides, and going through stuff. It's really bouncy and it's fun," said Brett Schott.

Members of the Hesse family were all about getting out and having fun with friends.

"Good friends of ours live up here in Hobart. They called us and said let's go bowling. The kids haven't been bowling and our little guy, this is the first time he's ever been bowling, so we just decided to stay inside someplace," said Jeff Hesse.

Michael Gerondale used the bowling alley to spend more time with family.

"We never do anything together, so this is the first time that we actually did something together…just the cousins," said Gerondale.

For some families, the water slides at the Ramada Plaza, in Ashwaubenon, were a great way for families to have fun and keep warm in the heated pool.

"We came to the pool because we've kind of been stuck in for days and we decided to come on a vacation for like a day. We came to the pool because we were kind of bored. It's pretty fun," said Reese Fischer-Zambarda.

With this past January the third coldest on record for Northeast Wisconsin, it's likely residents will need to continue to search out ways to beat cabin fever.
