ICE! Gaylord National Resort 2012

ICE! Gaylord National Resort 2012

 

I'm so glad my girlfriend called me yesterday to ask about my experience last winter at ICE! at Gaylord National Resort near Washington, DC.

She wanted to see what I loved about it and give her suggestions...SOOOO.. I'm jumping on here to share the 'awesomeness' of ICE!

We headed down to DC to experience first hand ICE last winter and I am FOREVER in love with this must do family tradition!!  It is so much more than an 'ice sculpture' and 'pretty tree'.  It's a total family experience!

Christmas on the Potomac is filled with so many family fun activities with some tweaks this year than the experience last year.  The Christmas on the Potomac has this amazing attraction called ICE!  This is probably the COOLEST thing I've ever seen.  Everything is entirely made out of ice!!  

Two MILLION POUNDS OF ICE!!!

The artists actually came from China to do this.  It's absolutely extraordinary.  (To see how they actually build it-check out here.)  It's very cool.  

OTHER GREAT FAMILY ACTIVITIES TO ENJOY AT ICE!

This is so fun. Gingerbread decorating is one of my absolutely favorite things to do with my little guy.  He loves it almost as much as I do!  You can decorate with their awesome gingerbread house and sugar cookie tree decorations.  Fun right?
