Grapevine and the Gaylord

We loaded up last weekend and headed to Dallas to celebrate Raley's 5th birthday!  I can not believe how big our kids are getting.  We stayed at the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine.  The Gaylord is one of the most beautiful hotels and they go all out for Christmas.  It was magical. The whole town of Grapevine takes Christmas decorating pretty seriously and the downtown area pictured below was so fun for the kids.  They had a singing Christmas tree and tons of lights.  

 The Gaylord has an ICE show every year.  This year the theme was Merry Madagascar! They make you wear heavy jackets because it is 9 degrees inside of the show.  It was FREEZING!  I thought the ice was amazing and at the end they had an ice slide that the kids wanted to go down over and over again!

 At the very end of the ICE show they had a nativity and they were playing audio with the story of Jesus!  LOVE that they did this!  It was my favorite part of the show!

 The hotel was gorgeous!
