December 2008-Gaylord Texan-Ice

At the first of December the boys and I went with my parents and youngest sister to see the Ice exhibit at the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine. The exhibit is hand-carved from two million pounds of ice and kept at a frosty 9°. We had to wear a snow suit type jacket in order to walk through the exhibit. ICE! featured Old Man Winter blowing snow, a wintry forest complete with frozen pond, and a life-size Santa's lap! Plus, there were exciting ice slides and a breathtaking larger-than-life Nativity-carved from crystal clear ice. The Gaylord Texan lobby (which is huge) was also decorated. The boys were able to visit with Santa, Mrs. Claus and even walk inside a real, life-size gingerbread house. We will never forget this experience!
