ICE!

The Ice village and slide are back at Gaylord National at National Harbor. The kids got a kick out of the new Jack Frost theme. The slides are always a hit. Be sure to grab some hot chocolate after before hopping on the carousel or decorating gingerbread cookies. Here’s more information on the exhibit which will be open through Christmas. You can get photos with Santa too.      ICE Frost

‘ICE’ is so COOL!

You know it’s a good attraction when an 11 month old doesn’t mind being in 9 degree weather! ICE!, is part of National Harbor’s Christmas on the Potomac. The Gaylord National Resort and DreamWorks Animation turned 2 million pounds of ice into an amazing winter wonderland. The theme this year is “Merry Madagascar” and the story of how the big lion helped save Christmas. A history buff, I was fascinated after watching a video that tells the story of the 40 artisans from Harbin China who come yearly to cut and create the different scenes. Now I wanna go to China to see the amazing ice city that’s erected annually in Harbin. At ICE! here at home families get big parkas to wear through the frozen fantasy land and then can ice skate at a little rink after. There’s also a Choo Choo Train and beautiful Christmas shop– where me and Adora started a new tradition– picking out an ornament together for the tree. I loved seeing my colleagues Eun and Elaine with their families too. It was truly a magical day.
