Everything is Awesome!

Back in August 2014 we started planning our Legoland trip. We started planting seeds of lego love in the boys heads but didn't tell them that we were planning a trip to Legoland. Bought the movie, watched it 50 times, lego sets for birthdays. The boys successfully became obsessed with Legos.

On Christmas morning the boys opened their presents (more lego sets) and the last present was a lego shirt for each of them. As they were opening them I said "For your last present we are going on a trip, can you guess where?"

The first guess was Disney Land, but the second was Legoland. 
They asked when we were leaving and we said "Right now!" 

Then we ate a quick breakfast and jumped in the car.
Traveling with three littles wasn't the greatest, but for the most part they did really good. 
We stayed at the Legoland hotel, which was amazing. I feel like it's part of the experience of Legoland. There is a huge lego pit and play area for the kids in the lobby. Lego pictures, and sculptures throughout the hotel and in the rooms. Free breakfast buffet, which was our favorite. And the coolest elevator you have ever been in, which was the boys favorite. 

Even the bathrooms were decked out. 

The other fun thing about staying there was the treasure box in the room. 
Every day the cleaning fairy's came and brought a prize for the treasure box.

The boys were as equally excited about finding the prize at the end of our trip as they were at the beginning. 

The park it's self was full of everything lego. Mini land was my favorite. 
Everything in the backround was made out of legos. It was amazing. 

This was the actual set of the non-animated parts of The Lego Movie. It took 4 people 200 hours to build! 

The boys LOVED the 4D movies. It was fun to watch them get excited and try to reach out and grab everything that was coming at us.
There were also two different building rooms in the park full of legos. One was for the little kids and one was for the older kid. 
Lincoln was able to go on every ride. Spencer wasn't tall enough for a lot of the rides. I kinda hoped they would let him on, since he was only about 2 inches short, but they were pretty strict on the hight requirement. There was so much to see in the park, that he didn't seam to mind. 

One of the days we made a trip out to La Jolla beach. The smell was terrible, but there were about 100 sea lions just sitting out on the rocks. 

 We met Will's niece Krysti at the beach and got to meet her new cute baby!

These boys were a handful, but it was worth it.

If I could have more than one dream job, it would be to be a Lego builder. I'm not even kidding.

I blog for journal reasons too then print it off at the end of the year in a book.
