Lego Land

After our Sea World adventure Keith and Alex sent Kelli and I out on a shopping spree as our Christmas gift. We hit up the (outdoor) outlet mall and scored some pretty great finds while it poured rain. Thanks boys, for the gift of shopping :) Bernie and Alli came along on our day to help us make some decisions and what was supposed to be a few hours literally turned into ALL DAY! Alli was a trooper, and even bought herself a few things. Oh and due to my growing belly I had to have Kelli model a few items that I wanted to buy. Thanks Kel!

Our next two days in San Diego were spent here at Legoland. It's amazing what has been created using legos and we enjoyed learning a bit about the history of legos. The older kids thought this was the highlight of the whole trip and were tall enough to do some fun roller coasters. Prego here and the little kids spent some extra time at the Duplo lego wall, checking out princess lego sets at the giftshops, and going to the Sealife exhibit a little early.

watching a 4D lego movie, we also got to see a little play called "Let it Snow" which Kendall really enjoyed.

Washington D.C. in Legos!

Super helpful cousins---Kendall is so blessed! 
San Francisco in Legos!

Catching a nap when she can (took some convincing to get her in the stroller though--we knew she's be out the second we started moving!). We were on our way to eat a late lunch out in the cars. It sure gets expensive to buy food in these parks so we got smart.

Day 2 at the lego wall

Pretty cool play structure (mostly for bigger kids) but Kendall enjoyed the tunnels and even managed to get poop on her face! GROSS!!!!! Thank goodness for wet wipes and plenty of bathrooms everywhere you turn. In fact, one of Kendall's favorite parts of Legoland was that each bathroom had a mini sink that she could reach and wash her own hands in---sometimes she washed her hands about 3 times in one bathroom trip. It's the little things :)

Plenty of lego tables all over the park for sparking your imagination.

I love that Kelly helped with modeling. What a sweet Sister-in-law! Looks like you guys made the most of every minute of your time in CA!

I love the picture of you and Kendall in front of Lego DC. I have yet to go to Legoland and am looking forward to it some day. What ages is it best for?
