LEGOLAND

As we were preparing for our trip to the U.S. we knew we were going to LEGOLAND, it was a little uncertain as to when we we would get there, but having two Lego addicted boys meant that we HAD to make it there while we were in Florida.
As it turned out, we skipped Disney all together and did two days at LEGOLAND.  It was the best choice for our family and I couldn’t begin to tell you how magical those 2 days were.  Can you tell how excited the boys were?IMG_0449

On Day 1 we arrived bright and early and were there for the opening ceremony.IMG_0453IMG_0457IMG_0461

As we entered the park we made our way to the back.  I had read online that if you head straight to the back and then work your way forward you won’t have to make a long trek at the end of the day when everyone is tired.  It was a great tip!
However walking past rides that had  NO lines proved to be too tempting for us to pass us.  We had a blast on these two water rides.

How exciting is it to see a giant octopus when you are 6 years old?  Amazing!  One of many moments that day that made us so glad that we had chosen to come to LEGOLAND!

We also had to stop for pictures with the shark before we trotted to the front of the line—with no waits at all!

Here we go one boating school!IMG_0497
Miller refuses to steer.  I have no idea why!IMG_0499IMG_0504IMG_0506
The vignettes were so adorable!IMG_0507IMG_0508IMG_0509IMG_0510
I even got talked in to riding a ride that spins—slowly.  I can’t do any spinning…thanks to my two older brothers!

We tried again to enroll Miller at the Toddler Driving school.  No dice, he refuses to steer.  They gave him a driver’s license anyway!

On the way to the big roller coaster we had to stop and give a few hugs to some peeps on the way!IMG_0513IMG_0514
Allen and Jackson went on this rollercoaster.  It was one of the 2 in the park that Miller was not big enough to go on.  We were very pleased that there were only 2.  Good job LEGOLAND!IMG_0519

We went to the Safari ride where all the animals are made out of LEGO!  So cool!IMG_0525IMG_0528

The next part had nothing to do with LEgos, but the boys thought it was a blast and stayed in there way too long  I have issues with “ball pit” type things.  “petri dish pits” if you ask me!IMG_0548IMG_0551IMG_0555
The next ride was a big hit too!IMG_0558IMG_0563
After lunch we caught one of the shows.  It was fun little tale about pirates that mixed in water skiing.IMG_0572IMG_0573IMG_0596IMG_0599
The cutest part was seeing Miller meet the characters after the show.  he really believes.  I love that about him at this age!IMG_0602
More cute photo ops!

Jackson is really getting into posing for pictures!  I love it and know that this stage will be too short!IMG_0606
There were plenty of places to stop and build with all the different types of LEgos.IMG_0607

Then we had the only little snag of the days.  Allen and Miller went on this ride and it got stuck.  They were only about a foot off the ground, but the seatbelts were locked.  It didn’t take long to get them out.  it was much better than the people who were at the top of the ride when it broke!!IMG_0610
That afternoon Jackson was able to sign up for a LEGO robotics class.  He was the only one too!  He built an alligator and then used some computer programming software to make it open and close it’s mouth different ways.  He loved it.IMG_0616IMG_0617
He was the only one who signed up, so he had a private class!  Amazing!IMG_0622

This was the other big roller coaster that Miller wasn’t tall enough for.  Jackson loved it!!IMG_0637IMG_0644IMG_0646

The details are amazing.  This mural was in the ladies room had this one that made me smile!

Since 46 pictures is not enough to sum up our time there, I’ll do a second post this week about our amazing time at LEGOLAND!
I have a funny surprise too!
Have you ever been to LEGOLAND?
