Cold and sloppy weekends

Luckily Chicago has a lot of things to do in the Holiday season. I always wondered what Holiday season would be like if there was no Christmas and only lets say Chanukha.

We usually compile a list of things we'd love to do with our kids, or at least with those who can appreciate them. This weekend we did two things. We went to the Botanic Gardens to see their annual Winter Express train exhibition. It's always a lot of fun to watch the trains whiz by. In the evening we went to the Lincoln Park Zoo (something we've tried to do couple couple of times) to watch the lights. It's actually a really good time, I don't know if it's annual or not, but they had Ice Sculptures there. You could actually see a dude with a chain saw cutting up large chunks of ice into works of art. What can be more fun?

Anyways, we are going to try to get to the Navy Pier's Winter Wonderfest this weekend.
