Our Weekend

Everyone who went to the ICE Exhibit with us

Saturday was quite the LONG fun-filled day.

The agenda for Saturday was: Visit Grandma GG and Grandpa Frank, Meet up with family for a surprise Birthday party for Boo (while keeping it all a surprise since Boo was riding with us), and go to the ICE exhibit at the Gaylord Texan.

We started out early and headed to Great Grandma GG. She is Jed's great grandma and the kids great great grandma. It was a great visit. GG was up and about showing Kota how to use her exercise equipment. Grandpa Frank is still looking great.

After our visit, we headed out to "meet up with Brittiany, Andy, and Lexi" so we could see the ICE exhibit. We stopped at a restaraunt for a potty break...and the hostess walked us back "to the restrooms" which was really one of the back rooms for parties. Everyone was waiting!! And Boo was surprised. We found out later that she knew that there was a party being planned but she didn't know when. And she was clueless that the party was today. Boo's birthday is on December 20th...so celebrating it on December 5th...yes! a complete surprise.

I hope I look as great as Boo looks at 70! Oops! did I just give away her age?? Hope she doesn't mind.

There were lots of family there.
And we took lots of pictures of the family...here's one of my favorites...even if Kota was being a little stinker and hiding for the picture.

Boo and all her grandkids and great grandkids...Kota was hiding behind Jed

After the party, we all headed to the Gaylord to see the ICE Exhibit of How the Grinch Stole Christmas. It was all made of ice. If I am correct, 2 million pounds of ice was used to make this exhibit. The handiwork and talent was self evident. Truly amazing.
We all had to wear glorious blue parkas. The temperature was 9 degrees inside the exhibit.
