That’s what I needed today!!!!
Today I took my GRANDS, daughter-in-law, & her mother to Grapevine Texas to The Gaylord Texan Hotel where they once again were hosting the amazing display called ICE.
The hotel is HUGE! With rooms soaring into the glass topped ceiling. ICE takes place every year between Thanksgiving & New Years. Millions of pounds of ice is made. And 41 ice carving artists are brought in from China to carve & create a frozen wonderland. I had taken the oldest GRAND twice before. Once before his brother was born & once 2 years ago (but, his brother & mother missed the family event because the little one was sick). Go HERE to see the display from that year. That years theme was candy & all sorts of sweets. This year the theme was…
A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS!!!
You have to have gloves, hats, & the hotel even provided bright BLUE parka’s because of the COLD temperatures. They keep this huge tented area a COLD 9 degrees with fans running to move the air so the ice won’t melt. Let’s look at some more of this amazing ART! The size of these figures were well above my 6 foot tall self! Imagine millions of pounds of ice… Chipping, carving, melting, molding this into Charlie & his friends.
Brick walls constructed. This one was probably 4 feet tall. A HUGE RED fence with wreathes for photo ops. The size of these are so much bigger than you would think. The GRAND on the right is 10 years old so you can see the scale of this. This is 5 ICE SLIDES with ICE block walls with Charlie Brown & his megaphone smiles over the fun & Charlie Brown Christmas music is playing over loud speakers. Do you LOVE the LED lights imbedded into the ice?
I LOVE the look of the lights with an actual light inside.
Breathtaking Beauty in the Greatest Story Ever Told.
I hope you have enjoyed this post & will come back soon for the continuation of the trip to The Gaylord. I will share an amazing GINGERBREAD HOUSE made from a ton of candy & marshmallow's. And a train display every sized kid (big & small) could ever want. In fact… The GRANDS have a list of “stuff” for Bop Bop to build.
