Thousands of colorful bricks

As a Mom of 3 boys I have spent many hours with those colorful bricks known as Legos.  My boys never get tired of their Legos.  It came as no surprise that my boys wanted to go to Legoland.  Our first trip was two years ago when my boys were 2 and 5.  I was totally impressed with the park.  It was time for another family vacation in Southern California and we asked the boys if they wanted to go to Disneyland and they replied can we please go to Legoland.  Since we now I have four children and the youngest is only 4 months I was happy to postpone Disneyland and take them back to Legoland instead.  I must say that Legoland continues to impress me.

Yesterday we took just the 3 boys ages 7, 4, and 20 months.  It was by far the best experience at an amusement park.  I love how Legoland is kid friendly.  There is plenty of sitting areas and high chairs near all the food courts.  The bathrooms are big with multiple changing stations.  There is even a Mom center with a family bathroom, Legos for the kids to play with, and an area with rocking chairs for Moms that are nursing. I love that most of the rides have a play area with Legos  for the kids while the parents hold their place in lines.  But my favorite part is the Parent Swap.  For those that don’t know the Parent Swap is when you have multiple children and some are not tall enough for the ride at all or not able to ride alone.  If the entire family waits in line together you can tell the attendant that you want to do a Parent swap.  One parent rides with a child and then the other parent waits with child #2 and when they get back they swap places.  This way the parents don’t have to wait in the entire line again.  Since we had our 20 month old with us I have to say this made our trip so much better.  My husband and I were both able to enjoy the rides with the older children and no one felt left out.

Not only are my boys Lego fans but they are also Star Wars Fans.  At the end of the month Legoland is opening a new Star Wars miniland with 6 scenes from the movies.  We were  a little bummed that we would not be able to visit this new exhibit because our spring break was in the middle of the month.  Little did we know that yesterday a Star Wars Lego Mural was going to be created.  Each guest had the opportunity to contribute.  Like paint by numbers guests had to match bricks to color squares on Lego base plates.  They are expecting it to take 5 days to complete the 15 foot 7.5 foot tall mural. Our family was able to create 7 tiles for the mural.  It was an experience we will never forget.  My boys were very serious as they were matching their bricks. It will be fun to go back one day and see the completed mural. 

If you have Lego fans in your house I highly recommend Legoland.  It is great family place and you will make memories to cherish forever. If we lived closer I would definitely have an annual pass.  The Legoland website has a special right now where you can get a 5 day pass for the price of 1.  I have also seen coupons at Del Taco that are buy one adult admission and get one kid admission free.  The Lego club magazine also as a buy one adult get one kid free coupon this month.  Below are a few pictures taken while we were working on the Star Wars Mural.
