This weekend, we headed to Skokie for Uncle Mark’s 60th birthday party. To help the kids burn off some energy before the party we headed to Skokie’s Backlot Bash. To Evan’s (and our) delight, there was food, carnival rides and music. First stop was the “Big Slide,” which Mike has been hoping to get Evan on all summer. We weren’t sure how he’d react, but Evan LOVED it–the kid has no fear when it comes to these types of things.
Next up was the train. I think this was Evan’s favorite ride, and I was happy to see him enjoy it so much because it means we’ll be visiting the one at Yorktown mall very soon.
Next up was the Merry-Go-Round:
Post rides, Evan chugged a large lemonade and we headed to the party. Unfortunately, I failed to capture photos of Mia or the party, but fun was had by all.
