baby it’s cold INSIDE

So…I’m finally getting around to posting about our trip to ICE inside the Gaylord Texan! We went the day after Christmas with all of Brooks’ family. It was 9 degrees inside…yes, 9 degrees!! So, we bundled ourselves up and they gave us giant parkas to wear on top of it all! It was a little hard to move, but we managed. The theme this year was How the Grinch Stole Christmas. It was amazing! EVERYTHING was made completely out of ice. I wish I had more pictures of the exhibit, but it was really neat to look at and Cole had a great time!

IMG_2986IMG_2976 They had these ice slides for the kiddos and adults. Cole went down it 3 times and would have gone a few more times if we let him. Look how silly he looks flat on his back with all that parka! He would get stuck at the bottom on his back and it was hard not to giggle at him.IMG_3001

As you can see the adults loved it too! The rules said I couldn’t go down it since I was pregnant…bummer! This was the smaller slide. There was one on the other side that was a lot bigger!IMG_3004 Cole was such a trooper wearing the hat and enormous jacket.  He loved everything and we will definitely be back next year. We even ended our trip with some yummy hot coco at the end…delish!IMG_2972
