Scenes from their first skate at Millennium Park

I took my five year-old and three year-old ice skating at the McCormick Tribune Ice Skating Rink at Millennium Park on Sunday.

My gosh, we had so much fun.

We are all really, really bad ice skaters. It took us a solid five minutes to make it around the rink one time. My kids fell dozens of times. We laughed through the whole experience. Then we drank hot chocolate and watched the Zamboni clean the ice and they thought that was almost as much fun as the skating itself.

The rink is only open for another month. And there are a ton of special events taking place between now and then -- be sure to bring your kids down for a skate!
