"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates." Deuteronomy 4: 6-9

Gaylord Palms ICE

Matt and I took our high school small group to a popular Orlando resort called The Gaylord Palms last week. The Gaylord Palms puts on an event called ICE around Christmas time where millions of pounds of ice are brought in and extremely talented people carve the ice into all sorts of things.
The conference center where ICE is held is kept at a FRIGID 9 degrees! They provide parkas for you to wear and suggest you bundle up on your own as well. Even after wearing 2 coats, and a parka, we all were still freezing!

You walk through this exhibit in amazement that people can actually carve ice into these flawless looking masterpieces! They even had a full carousel.

At the end of ICE, there are a couple of slides you can slide down. Our high school kids had fun trying to figure out how to get down these ice slides. Afterwards, we got our complimentary hot cocoa and thawed out! What a fun night!
