Jon's parents came to stay the weekend after Christmas. Sunday night we decided to go out and do something fun. We went to eat at the Flying Fish (which is delicious by the way!), and then decided to go to the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine, TX to see an ICE exhibit. We packed all our warm clothes, because we heard it was pretty chilly where all the ice was. We got there and we were having so much fun just looking around the place that we almost didn't make it to see the ice before it closed. Jon and I got the blue parkas they offered us, so that we could slide down the slide. We went into the exhibit and it was so cold! They said it was 9 degrees in the rooms! BRRRR! It was so neat. They had tons of ice sculptures, from bears to Christmas ornaments, to Santa, and a gingerbread house, but my favorite was the nativity scene. They also had 2 huge slides that you could slide down, and that was a lot of fun, except I quit sliding 3/4 of the way down and had to scoot to the end :) After we felt like we had frost bite and had finished going through the exhibit, we thawed out by walking around the hotel and checking out all the cool stuff they had there! We had a really fun time and it was a nice closing to the Christmas season!
