Winter Wonderland at Navy Pier in Chicago

We made it up to Navy pier on our 2nd attempt. We headed up the first time but had to turn around because James got sick. The boys had fun playing on the bouncy slides and some other rides.

 Macen, Maddox and I made our first attempt at ice skating. Maddox wanted me to hold onto him the whole time and I was afraid he was going to wipe both of us out. We managed to stay on our feet but Maddox was done after 1 lap. I went another lap to see if I could do it without holding onto the side the whole time. I managed but was done after that lap, lol. Macen loved it! He found his groove and after getting out there a 2nd time later in the day, he wasn't even staying near the side. He had lots of spills but he got back up and took off again and again. He didn't want to stop.

Wherever there were no rides/activities, there were little houses and villages along with lots and lots of decorated Christmas trees. Some with just lights, some with ornaments and lights and several decorated as minions, easter bunnies, fall, etc. There were also several opportunities for pictures with oversized props like the rocking chair.
