B has the week between Christmas and New Years off every year. We love to take advantage of that time and go on adventures, see new things where we live, and play. This year was no exception. We went down to a local hotel where an incredible display of gingerbread houses is presented each year. They are built by local architecture firms. The children had so much fun figuring out what kind of treats and looking for tiny details. One in particular had a tribute to at least a dozen Grimm’s Fairy Tales. They had quite a lot of fun looking for all the stories.
The turrets of Aladdin's castle were made of blown sugar. I love the detail of the mosaic floor. This could not be seen by most people- only the very tallest visitors to the display, and those who put their camera up high!
