Tourists {in Grapevine}!

Yesterday, we met my mom up for a little sight seeing in downtown Grapevine. It’s absolutely beautiful at every store front. There were Christmas trees every where we looked!

{warning: quite possibly the longest post you will ever read!}

Photo opportunities were at every corner!

We started off with a tractor-pulled ride around town to look at all of the decorations.

Then, we walked all around downtown taking in the sights. There were a lot of kid friendly things to see including a “Santa’s Village”.

After sight-seeing we had an early dinner at a yummy Mexican restaurant right around the corner.

After walking around a little more, we decided to hop on over to the Gaylord Texan Hotel to show the kids more decorations.

We, especially Hannah, were in awe of how beautiful the hotel was. And, how many kid friendly activities they had!

After lots more photo ops, we took them to the Kung Fu Panda Awesome Snow Tubing! {say that ten times fast!} We think they are still a little too young to fully enjoy The ICE! and it’s quite pricey. So we opted for the slide instead, and they were SO excited!
