Thanks to everyone who’s been following our family on this blog.
- The National Harbor is what Penn’s Landing (Philadelphia, PA) wants to be when it grows up.
- I figured that we’d check out the National Children’s Museum Launch Zone and the Gaylord National Hotel & Convention Center since the ICE! exhibit was going on.
The National Harbor would have been a nice place to walk around in mid-morning on NYE — what was it, like 50F? Too bad we had to be at home. The blower on our heat pump needed replacing, which was important since the temperature has since dropped outside. Needless to say, I’m eagerly waiting for warmer weather so we can go back!
We only got to go to the Gaylord because the Launch Zone was closed. Upon seeing the crowd inside and the line that wrapped around the entire length of the lobby, I thought to myself, Wow, this Gaylord must be a big deal!
We visited the lower level where the “streets” were decorated with lights and garland. J’s favorite part was the water show. We saw kids building gingerbread houses and taking pictures with the gingerbread man from Shrek. Cute, but for $79?! We did not go to the ICE! exhibit because it was $35 for adults! WHAT?! I’m guessing that ice-slide up there also costs extra. Pictures with the Madagascar characters also extra.
Man, really taking those parents’ hard-earned dollars, huh, Gaylord?
