The Gaylord Texan

One rainy Sunday morning, we met my friend Dayna for breakfast at Ihop. Afterward, to stay out of the rain, we decided to take the boys to the Gaylord Texan to see the trains and roam around before nap time.

Other than the hefty $12 parking fee they charge, the Gaylord is a great place for out-of-towners and locals alike. It's not as amazing as the Gaylord Opryland in Nashville, but it's pretty darn nice. Their giant (four and a half acre) atrium houses gardens, winding waterways, restaurants, shopping, a spa, and a night club. Different areas represent the different and diverse areas of Texas including the hill country and San Antonio. The boys had fun watching the trains, checking out the fountains, and generally wandering around. We even got to see a guy doing rope tricks which the boys though was really neat!!
