I have one more day from last month's vacation that I wanted to post, but am just now getting around to it. On our last day, we didn't have any plans. (Oh, that is a beautiful thing on a vacation!) Nolan had rented a second car to drive to Daytona to watch the Marshall basketball game, so it was just us girls. I know how much my Mom loves the G*aylord hotel in Nashville and I had tried many times to book hotel reservations at their Orlando location, but they were completely booked during our days there. So, since we weren't staying there (which actually turned out for the best because we loved where stayed), I thought it might be fun to head over to the G*aylord Palms to explore the hotel and have lunch. Mom loved that idea!
Seeing that it is not working as well on me as she would like, she turns to Grandma, "Please, pretty please, Grandma?" Y'all know where this is headed, right? So, we all bundle up in their big blue coats, brief the girls on "do not touch the ice, we will go through quickly, look as you walk, this is going to be a quick trip or else we'll get frostbite, etc., etc."
FYI - I was not worried about capturing the best images, as I was told my camera battery would freeze in seconds if I didn't hold my hand around the battery. My camera didn't freeze, but my hands did, so I'm thrilled I got at least a few decent pics.
And it was A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.
Truly NOT your typical ice show. Everything you see is carved in ice.
The nativity scene - WOW!
And the girls' favorite part - the slides. How cool is that?
I tried to back up and get a picture of all the chutes, but only captured about half. Even the reindeer are carved in ice.
And for a little silly humor, this is the sign that greeted us when we exited the show.
And Mia being a good girl and following directions. :)
Thanks, Mom. I think we made a record for quickest in/quickest out, but we loved it!!
