On Sunday, we were invited to check out a media preview of ICE! at Gaylor National Hotel and Convention Center as part of their Christmas on the Potomac celebration. This is one of our favorite events each year - and it's so close to enjoy!
We kicked off our day by making a gingerbread house with Gingy from Shrek. The room is set up to look as if you're inside a gingerbread house and Gingy came out quite a few time for photo ops with the kids. The best part about making a gingerbread house outside of your kitchen at home... there is no clean up involved!
Afterwards, we bundled up in our parkas to experience ICE! featuring ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas. This year’s ICE! also includes a brand-new Christmas in New York City scene. Be sure to dress warmly, as it's only 9 degrees inside ICE!
Once the sun set, we joined with others in the atrium for the lighting of the Christmas Tree, the nightly fountain light show, and the indoor snowfall. The children gathered and caught snowflakes as the bright lights filled the atrium.
I'm giving away 4 admission tickets to ICE! TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS compliments of Gaylord National Resort. Tickets are valid on non-peak dates.
