Opryland Vacation

   Clint, Garrett, and I took a family vacation to Opryland Hotel in Nashville, Tn. this past weekend. It was beautiful! You could not see a single sign that there had been a flood. Everything looked perfect! Friday we arrived and had a hard time finding a place inside to have lunch because of so many people. I made reservations that night at Solario's. Solario's was the mexican restaurant inside the hotel. It was fantastic! They had the best chicken fajitas that I've ever eaten! It felt like we walked a thousand miles that evening looking at everything. Each time we went walking around, we found new places inside the hotel that we had not seen yet. It was huge!
   We took Garrett to the ICE show. It had 2 million pounds of carved ice. It was 9 degrees inside to keep the ice so perfect. They made us wear special coats to keep us warm. I let Garrett ride down the ice slide. He liked it until he got stuck half way down.
   Saturday we got up and at breakfast at Cascades. That was a wonderful breakfast. I had a ham, bacon, sausage, etc. omelet. Clint had the California b'fast. He had sausage, eggs, biscuits, gravy, etc. Garrett ate so much, I thought he was going to be sick! We decided to eat pizza for lunch. That night we made reservations at the Cascades again. I had a flat iron steak with a special horse radish sauce. Clint had herb chicken with sweet potatoes. It was good but VERY expensive and classy!
   That day we went to the Grand Ole Opry to see the Rockett's! They were fantastic! Garrett sat through the entire 2 hour show with his eyes glued! He loved it. I was so afraid he wasn't going to sleep good each night. He was so exhausted that he just fell asleep both nights. He did great.
   Sunday morning Garrett got to eat breakfast with Santa. The breakfast was amazing. They had a buffet with every kind of breakfast food that you could think of. After breakfast, we loaded up the car and headed home. Opryland Hotel is an amazing place that everyone should experience. Next time, I hope Clint and I could have a get away.... just the two of us. That would be such a romantic place. It is a great place for a winter honeymoon!
