Deb's Dallas - Part 1
Wed, 01-05-2011 - 8:33am

Okay. I don't remember what time we left Houston - I know we were aiming for hitting Grapevine about 3:00 pm. We stopped once at Denny's for breakfast, and made it to the hotel by 2:00 pm. We had good luck with traffic. Sadly, our room was not ready. Unlike Disney, they couldn't even check us in - we were told to come back in an hour.

So, we went around looking at the atrium. The atrium was really done up nice for looking around, taking pics. The have a train set w/village set up

Awesome!!!! I love that you and Kim got to meet but it's such a bummer that you didn't get to visit with her.

That hotel looks just beautiful. I love how they really went all out with the decorating. And the transportation sounds like a good deal.

The girls look like they were really having fun at the Rainforest. I can see how those horns would drive you nuts. I know they would probably drive me nuts. I am not as patient as I used to be with noise:)

Good idea on the Branson thread!!!

We don't have any Gaylord hotels here so I am living vicariously through Deb!

Glad the girls got to meet the frog. :)

The Gaylord is really nice. Last year we went during the day and it was really pretty but this year we were there at night and I much prefer the lights in the evening. It's really done well.
