Abby & Santa

This weekend we went to the Gaylord Opryland Resort to see the ICE! display. Besides being veerrRRYY cold the ice sculptures were impressive and amazing.

We walked through a huge castle made out of ice and then I slid down an ice slide! There was even an ice nativity scene. It was quite beautiful.

At the end of the display we were pleased to purchase two hot caramel apple ciders. The apple cider was a nice treat after almost freezing among the sculptures.

After the ICE! show we headed over to the Gaylord Opryland Hotel to see the lights and decorations. I particularly enjoyed watching the Island Fountain at the Delta.

While we were in the hotel we ran into Santa. We got a picture of Abby sitting in his lap ( as seen in this blog entry ). She behaved herself like a little princess in Santa's lap. Santa was very patient and friendly with her.

It was a long day in traffic, waiting in lines, and walking around, but it was a very memorable and fun outing.

For pictures of the ICE! diplay go to my ICE! Yahoo! Photo Album.


  1. Do you have Pics for the Ice?

  2. Cool! Mary Beth and I are thinking about staying a few days in Nashville for our Last "Childless" Vacation. Any ideas for some cool stuff to do around Nashville?
