I’m not sure if it was because all of the of kids (except Emma) were sleeping in the same room, or if it was due to the fact that they were in an unfamiliar environment, but every child in our house played musical beds all night long. G wound up in our bed, then I woke up with him in his bed. Blerg. Even still, I was able to get a good night of sleep.
We had breakfast in the house before getting ready for the day. Before long, we were on our way to LEGOLAND. George had been asking to go for a year, so he was very excited to finally be on his way.
We arrived right when the park opened and it was pretty empty (which was a dream come true).
We made our way to our first ride – the Safari Trek.
We had fun and immediately made our way to the next ride – the Coaster Saurus. This was a more traditional roller coaster and I’m not sure who had more fun – the kids or the adults.
Afterwards, we went to Skipper School, then boarded the Captain Cranky ride. Both were great experiences for the kids. The next stop was a Lego playground, then a whirl on the
All of this activity made us hungry, so we decided to eat some lunch. I had a great Caprese sandwich with farm-fresh tomatoes that were super delicious. Who knew park food could be so good?
The kid’s meals offered at the park were surprisingly filling and tasty. George had ham and cheese roll ups with crackers, fruit, gummy treats, and an Honest juice.
After lunch, we went on our favorite ride – the Deep Sea Adventure.
We also had fun seeing all of the Lego installations around the Park.
We also made a point to try the park’s infamous apple fries.
They. Were. So. Good.
After some time playing in one of the Lego play areas, we made a stop at the Park’s Big Shop. We picked up some new Legos for George and even managed to pick up a Halloween costume for him. We also had an opportunity to meet “Benny” from the Lego movie.
Because our tickets included entrance into the Sea Life Aquarium, we made a quick pass through the exhibit. George loves sea-life, so he really enjoyed the experience. Once of his favorite parts of the visit was touching a Starfish.
We left the Park late in the afternoon and George snoozed in the car (while clutching his loot).
We stopped at Ralph’s (grocery store) where I picked up some groceries for the house. Once we made it back to the house it was Lego assembly time.
Zach and John built the kid’s Legos and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.
Later, Nelda and I walked to the Point Loma Fish Shop and picked up dinner. Everyone enjoyed seafood and fried deliciousness back at the house. Thanks to the time change and day’s activities, it was an early bedtime for everyone.
