The Gaylord Texan

We had a great time at the Gaylord Texan . We had our choice of several restaurants on the premises for dinner. We decided to do the all-you-can-eat buffet at the Riverwalk Cafe. Paul loves all-you-can-eat!

After dinner we went "Down the Rabbit Hole", which was a 3D blacklight maze.

The atrium was decorated with several displays from the Wonderland books. They had a balloon sculpture of the griffon, large metal flowers, sand sculpture of the queens table, topiary rabbit, metal wind sculpture for the jabberwocky, plus lots more.

When we passed this display, Sophie stopped to stare. She likes to watch the flamingos at the zoo, too.

She wouldn't come away from these lights. I think she thought it was the same thing that is at the splash parks (the thing that starts the sprinklers going).

There was lots of water...fountains, fake river, small ponds. I think Sophie would have been swimming in each of them if we'd let her.

There was a huge chess set. I wish I knew how to play, I know Paul would have enjoyed that.

Sophie probably walked a hundred miles while we were there.
