We’ve been to ICE at the Gaylord Texan for at least 3 years now. And this year may have been my favorite! They had a Shrek theme and the details are crazy! They bring in 40 artisans from China to create the ‘winter wonderland’ It’s amazing! It takes 3 months for them to freeze enough ice for the exhibit. Blows my mind every year!
The annual 'blue pictures’. We carried Hudson last year and even a lot of this year because of the crowds. It’s so hard to carry a 30 pound baby wearing a coat and a parka while you’re doing the same. I’m really building up my arm muscles.
H and J went with us this year too. Landree adores her cousins! They are so good about playing with her! Especially J, she adores him! And H is so beautiful! She is 12 y’all!
They ask you not to touch the ice because it can cause it to melt, but they had a place you could sit in the ‘outhouse’.
They have a giant slide room (that was the coldest room of all!) That you can slide down the ice-H and J both took a turn on the slide.
When we got to the last room we had Mag snap a quick picture-we couldn’t find Mia and Landree (they had already finished-it was too cold)
I have a picture of Maggie with a fire extinguisher from the first year we went. Just seems kind of funny.
And one of my favorite parts is that they always have a nativity scene and have the Christmas story being told. It’s beautiful!
After ICE we headed to eat lunch before we walked around the Gaylord for a little while. It is so beautiful and a little overwhelming to be honest. They toy solider and snowman are 3 or 4 stories high.
And there are trains everywhere! Hudson loved watching them go by!
Santa’s reindeer are everywhere-they are so cute.
A life-size gingerbread house and a gingerbread village with more trains!
These giant toy soldiers where walking around too.
And we couldn’t leave before we got a balloon. Hudson got a sword and Landree got a balloon bracelet and bunny. They both last about as long as we had to wait in line (about 45 minutes)
