We had a little family excursion yesterday. Doug and I were wondering when the last time we went to Gaylord Opryland Country Christmas. We decided that it has to be at least 7 years ago, way before Katie was born.
We all have to have our picture taken in front of the poinsettia tree.
I just love this Nativity Scene
Looking through a small window out to the waterfall
I was so happy to capture this waterfall from the skywalk, looking down. So beautiful!
Katie had a blast, looking around the hotel. She couldn't fathom the thought of all of this in one hotel. We, adults, were getting pretty wore out from all the walking, but Katie wanted to see more. If it was up to her, she would research every inch of this place. She told me as we were walking in the Delta room that this was the greatest day ever. She is so funny.
As you can tell, we loved the lights inside and outside the hotel. Earlier, we did go by the Opry Mills Mall, but most stores were still closed for repair from the flood a couple of years ago. We did get to shop at the Bass Pro Shop. The rest of the stores are suppose to re-open this Spring.
We drove up the road to Rivergate Mall and did little shopping. Gymboree had a great sale going on; unfortunately, I don't have a dime to my name after Christmas. Anyway, they had their entire stock for $15.99 and less. Katie was going crazy because she heard that this mall had a Build-a-Bear. Thankfully for her, she had a little money saved from Christmas and spent it all on her new bear "Rainbow." It is cute and I think she did a good job picking out the outfit. Colton was so thrilled that I finally got him a Spiderman t-shirt. He was excited to try it on this morning that he wouldn't let me take it off.
We hope you have a great New Years weekend.
