Its so fun that these ice castles are just 40 min from our house!
Before we went, we spent the day shopping for some new clothes for Russ. He had casual dress for his old job so he needed a few more business clothes for his new position.
I was obsessed with Lilas hair that day since she was only 6 months old and wearing pigtails :)
She was SO good! She was in her car seat ALL day and never did anything but smile.
I truly don't know how we got so lucky.
Later that night we met up with our good friends to drive up to Midway to meet my family for dinner.
Its nice having friends that have been around for so long that they can come along to family activities.
The ice castles were so cool, so cold and SO crowded.
The boys and their babes.
Russ & Lila and our friend Dave and their son.
These 2 little babes have been on a few dates now :)
It was cool to go at night because they had really neat lighting that changed colors.
Im pretty sure Lila is wearing 165 layers.
My awesome parents.
Poor little babe had so many layers she couldn't even put her arms down haha!
They even had a slide in the middle made of ice!
All of the cousins..minus my brothers kids.
After we left, we went and got hot chocolate to warm up!
