Both Elsie and her Phipps cousins, John and Leah, will be travelling for Christmas this year. So, we decided to get together for a day to have a little pre-Christmas. Leah was dressed in the appropriate attire for opening presents!
We went to the Shedd Aquarium in the morning - nice and early before the crowds!! Elsie and John enjoyed looking at all of the fish. Elsie was trying to figure out how to get into the water.
The kids really enjoyed the Polar Play Zone, where there are many hands-on activities. They were just running around playing in the water at this "exhibit." You would have thought these guys had never taken a bath before by how excited they were.
