Following church Sunday morning and a quick lunch at home, we headed to downtown Grapevine as they always decorate Main Street. We weren't the only ones with that idea as it was certainly a popular activity that day. Plus, the weather was perfect (sunny, temperatures in the upper 50s) so we enjoyed being outdoors!

After walking around and doing some window shopping, we took the shuttle to the Gaylord Texan. For anyone interested in visiting, I highly recommend taking the shuttle instead of driving to the Gaylord as it is substantially cheaper. Anyway, at this time of year the Gaylord is known for its ICE exhibits (large ice carvings, 9 degrees Fahrenheit) which I've heard are really cool (pun intended). But the cost of admission wasn't quite in our budget this year so we skipped out on that. We still had a lot of fun walking around the large resort, people-watching, and looking at the Christmas decorations.
|Very cool model train set|
|Matt spotted this detail: shotgun shell Christmas lights!|
|Poor lighting but cool gingerbread display|
|Gotta have a margarita glass Christmas tree.|
This is Texas after all.
|We ended our visit with some ice cream. I have no clue why |
they didn't have Blue Bell-- what's more
Texan than that?
We had a great and much more eventful weekend than our normal study-filled two days. It was fun to get out, explore the area some more, and see the Christmas decorations!
