Legoland :: Another Theme Park! Oh, My!

1:04 AM

We debated before we even left if we should go to Legoland or not.  Joshua is an avid lover of legos.  I couldn't imagine being so close and not going.  However, 4 days at Disneyland...did we really need another theme park adventure?  I brought my kids-get-in-free coupons, compliments of the free Lego magazine that Joshua has been receiving for a few years, just in case.

Three days in, we decided just to ask the kids if they were interested.  I wasn't surprised when they said yes.  We didn't want to use any of our Disneyland days to drive there, so we decided to call up the YWAM San Diego location to see if they would house some fellow YWAMers.  For 2 days we had an entire apartment to ourselves!  It was wonderful.

Back to Legoland.  Quite honestly, it's hard to top Disneyland.  The saving graces were the very short lines and the very cool Lego masterpieces everywhere.  Check out a partial view of Lego USA...

With close-ups of some of the cities...I wonder how long it took to build all this!

We managed to get Emma G to ride a few roller coasters but left the boys to ride the crazy Bionicle arm that twists you all sorts of ways, including upside down.  No, thank you, I'll just take pictures!

The kids had fun playing at the water area.  Well, Emma G did until the big bucket filled with water and dumped on her!  She had no idea it was coming!

Legoland was fun, but if you are ever going to do Disneyland and Legoland in the same trip, I would suggest Legoland first.  It just doesn't compare!  We did have a fun day, though, and ended it by a trip to the famous In-N-Out Burger.  I will admit, my Cali friends, it was good!

  5. Wow! It is truly amazing to see all the lego structures! Who thinks of them and seriously, how long do they take to create? Wow!

    And how neat that you all were able to have a place to stay through YWAM.

    Blessings & Aloha!
