We went to Shrek the Halls which is this ice festival at National Harbor over the Christmas break. It is basically all these ice sculptures based on the Shrek movies and these castles you walk through and these ice slides you get to ride down. It reminded me of the St. Paul Winter Carnival when they used to build those big castles except it is all inside. My boys didn't really enjoy it at all because they were so cold. It was supposedly somewhere between 12-17 degrees but it felt much colder then that in there. So basically we are in big trouble if and when we ever move back North. After we made it through the exhibits we had hot chocolate and went across the street to the Gaylord Hotel where they had train rides and gingerbread cookie making. That is where the big X-mas tree with the fountain is from.
