Day 2

Legoland! We had a super fun time. This park is such a treasure. Yes, expensive, but for the little ones....it's paradise. It's colorful and exciting and filled with just-my-size adventures.

My Aunt Donna and Cousin Cam joined us. They're local and experts when it comes to Legoland.

Carter and Cam rode this one.....The Aquazone.

And, we left our mark as usual......notice Lainey's sippy cup thrown into the water.

Little creatures everywhere.

Caught Jack mid-wipeout here on the slide. Poor guy.

Ball party! Just like Worlds of Fun.

No clever description needed here.

Mmmmmm......apple fries with whipped cream. I only had a couple, but they were pretty good. Blake and Caroline loved them.


One of the funniest rides there......Jack driving at the Lego Junior Driving School.

Seriously. How much do they pay these people? Can you imagine directing these little punkins all day? Check out Jack about to fly right into the traffic jam. Genius.

But, he passed! Here he is with his license!

My Aunt Donna.....Jack......Caroline. A sweet moment.

Another cute ride.

Off to Mini-Land.....a fantastic display of Lego buildings. I could walk this area for hours looking at all the exhibits. The creators are (obviously) extremely talented and funny, too. Quirky little details everywhere.

Shannon.....this one is for you. Obama's inauguration.....so cool!

While looking at this one, my oh-so-clever husband threw out, "Wonder how much 'stimulus' was used to build this display?" He got a reaction and a verbal high five from another spectator, which only encouraged him.

Many cities are represented. Here is New Orleans during Mardi Gras. Quirky little detail here? A man getting arrested on Bourbon Street. It's true life, people! Doesn't stop me from adoring this city.

St. Louis Cathedral.

Manhattan. Notice the scale of these buildings.....compared to the people looking at them.

One of my favorites.....Fairy Tale Brook.

Magical for the little ones.

And, our last ride....the Safari Trek. So cute!

We have a beach picnic planned for breakfast and some time in the sand should follow. Lots more to come!
