You’re a COLD one Mr. Grinch

Matt’s work had their holiday party last Friday. It was at a yummy Mexican restaurant in the National Harbor.

After the lunch party, we decided to go check out the ICE! exhibit.

It was really neat and VERY cold! Everything was made of colored ice blocks. The exhibit was a toasty 9 degrees. Even with the parkas they gave us I was pretty cold. It didn’t help that I had on a dress with tights. ( I kept getting a very COLD draft up my dress!)

The parka was over my regular jacket and scarf and I was still cold!

The ice slide. I didn’t go because I had on a dress and didn’t want to give an extra show!

Had to take a pic of the ice cake!!

The ice nativity scene was really amazing and beautiful – even if it was a little random after all that Grinch stuff. But a nice reminder of the real reason for the season.

Pretty tree . The lights danced and changed colors along with the music playing.

It was a really fun afternoon! If you ever get a chance to see one of the ICE! Experience exhibits I recommend it. I tried to find a link to it, but I just saw a lot of different links to Gaylord hotels. I guess they are all connected to the hotel chain.
