Gilbert Loves Disco

Well, maybe strongly likes. Then again, he wasn't really sure what was going on. Today was Baby Loves Disco as I posted earlier this week.

What better way than to spend your Sunday afternoon than at a concert venue with your son and wife! Hosted at the Metro up in Wrigleyville, we arrived about an hour after everything had started and the place was rocking, er, grooving to disco tunes.
The main dance floor was crowded with parents and kids dancing. Pretty cool. There was plenty for the kiddies to do. Those that weren't dancing, or could walk for that matter had a lot of options as stations were set up for kids to crawl (scoot!) or just chill.

Upstairs food and beverage was provided for the kids. And for the adults? Alcohol! Yep, a full bar was available. We didn't partake, but many parents did. At the top of each hour there was a new year's countdown followed by a big bubble machine. The kids flocked to it like bugs to one of those glowing zappers, without the zap of course!

At first, Gilbert wasn't sure what to do. He just stared wide-eyed at all that was going on. We met up with some new friends we met at the gala back in December so it was great to have people to talk with. They have a precious girl (about 8 months) with the best cheeks! She was all smiles!

Both missed their naps so as the party was winding down, so were the kids. In summary, if you have a Baby Loves Disco in your area, it is worth going to. Especially if your kids are older and enjoy dancing
