Raising a pair of vehicularly-inclined daughters, I tend to find myself in a position to rekindle some of my own childhood interests. Toy cars, racing and yes, even Monster Trucks are a part of that, so when Feld Entertainment and Windy City Kids Guide asked us to check out MONSTER JAM, Addie and I couldn't pass it up. Little Finley sat this one out since she's still a tad too young for it, but Addie and I, along with her friend Richard and my friend, John, headed for Allstate Arena in Rosemont, a familiar location that we typically visit while ice-covered. But last night? It was all about dirt, metal and octane.

As we entered the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois on Wednesday night, I couldn't help but think that the "kid" version of me would be pretty impressed. After all, when I was but a wee lad, attending DISNEY ON ICE was a very special experience - one that I first took part in way back in 1981 (I went into detail on that here) - and something that was a rare occasion. But here we are, and "grownup" James has been to DISNEY ON ICE three times in just under a year. The kid version of me would have just as much trouble believing that as the McFly family did when Marty went back to 1955 and mentioned having television sets... "two of them." Having taken my oldest to Rockin' Ever After last January at the Allstate Arena, followed by 100 Years of Magic (with both girls) last November at United Center, it was time for a new performance with DISNEY ON ICE Presents Let's Celebrate!, which we attended courtesy of Feld Entertainment via the work I do with US Family Guide. You know what? Attending DISNEY ON ICE is still a very special experience.

I am a Feld Family Ambassador, and this post is brought to you as part of that relationship. All opinions are my own.

Disney On Ice is officially a family tradition. Back in January, I posted some thoughts about taking our oldest daughter, Addie, to see Disney On Ice for the very first time - a production of Rockin' Ever After at the Allstate Arena. Fast-forward nine months, and the crew from Feld Entertainment is back in Chicago with Disney On Ice celebrates 100 Years of Magic at the United Center... directly across the street from the site of the old Chicago Stadium... the same place that I first saw Disney On Ice back in 1981. This time around was another first... Little Finley, at only 15-months-old, would get her first Disney On Ice experience.
