ICE - Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer - Part II

This is what I wrote yesterday, 
if you read yesterday's post, you can skip this part and head straight to the good stuff 
- The Pictures -

"If you follow my blog, 
you know that during each Christmas Season we take a few days and visit
Gaylord National Resort, just outside of Washington, D.C.
to see ICE!
ICE is an indoor Winter Wonderland -
A walk through holiday attraction, featuring two million pounds of ice sculptures, 
hand sculpted by 35 artisans from Harbin, China. 
 Kept at a chilly 9 degrees,
you can read more about the making of ICE, here.
This years colorful ice sculptures depict the story of
Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
Four ice slides and a stunning crystal clear ice sculpture scene of the Nativity."

We took a lot of pictures, this is the second half,
although clearly math is not my strong suit.

This is the slide room...

me sliding...

the hubs sliding.

I decided to have some fun with the Abominable Snow Monster

As you enter the display, 
they give you the blue parka's to wear over your coat as you walk through...
because it is 9 degrees.
I would have been fine without it.

ohhhhh and Happy December, make it a December to Remember!

And I wondered about the parkas! Since I never see you bundled up like that. But you'd certainly need them, on that slide!!!!!!! -grrrrrin-

I love you dear friend because you have such an awesome sense of humor, you enjoy your adventures and you take the best photos ever. I especially loved the two photos of you guys going down slide. I remember they were awesome last year too. Your Abominable Monster ones were so cute. This was way fun and the ice sculptures are so amazing.
Blessings and hugs!

It's amazing how much like the actual characters they make these look - from ice! I see why you guys do this annually! Lots of fun!

Seriously, we have ice, on the frog pond. That's the most excitement we have.
