My Favorite Scene at Legoland

This was beautiful ~ you might be able to see little Lego animals: a family of otters, a fawn. There was a cute family of foxes, a rabbit.....

Phillip's Pictures of Legoland

Here are some of the pictures Phillip took at Legoland.

This is Mostly What Happens at a Theme Park

I didn't want to ruin the kids' day at Legoland, but I mostly had sarcastic thoughts running through my head during our day at a theme park. I don't think I do theme parks well. Because....

You wait in line for an hour in order to do anything.

Still in line.

A little closer.

Oh, a pretty flower. I'll look at this for a while.

Well, at least they're past the pole now.

Harrison is a wonderful sport about all the waiting. Good thing he loves to stand around and observe.

They're next, thank goodness.

All that waiting and we have an escapee. Looked too scary close up.

Phoebe bravely goes first.

And it's too scary to stand up, so she ducks down the whole time.

And now she's mad. We truly did not make her ride it ~ it was her choice.

Jon's turn ~ he ducks down too.

Aaahhh ~ it's over! And that was just one ride. We did this all day. :-)

How Many Lego Pieces Does It Take?

One of my favorite parts about Legoland were all the "statues" and figures around the park that were made out of Lego. Somebody has a really cool job ~

Sitting in the Welcome sign.

You could buy a quarter pound of Legos for $8.99. There were lots of stores featuring different kinds of Legos to buy: mini-figures, Lego sets, girl Legos..... We managed to escape the place without making any Lego purchases. Buying a meal cost enough.

Mini-land was pretty cool. There were all kinds of scenes from around the US. The kids recognized the three buildings from New York that you sent to them, Uncle Cory. I should have gotten a picture of them in front of "their building"; but my brain didn't think of it until too late.

The rides were kind of a bust for our kids. There just weren't very many that they wanted to ride.

The Driving School was fun though.

He did get a little nap.

We were VERY tired by the end of the day. It was worth the cheap group price we paid through our homeschool group. My boys do love Legos. And the girls don't mind them either.
