We decided to spend Mother's Day at my parent's house so we loaded up Thursday when Terry got off work and drove down. We went to Legoland on Friday and it was so much fun! It wasn't very crowded and it wasn't terribly hot. My parents have annual passes since its about 5 minutes from their house, and a lady in their church got tickets for the three of us for free.
*Side note - we are truly blessed by my parent's church - they've thrown us a baby shower, wedding shower, and we've never paid to get into any amusement park in Orlando thanks to the generosity of the people in their church.
We LOVED Legoland...Madeline is the perfect age for this park! Get ready for picture overload!
I feel like this should be obvious, but everything is made from legos. It kinda stressed me out and made me excited at the same time thinking about how somebody built every single thing in that park out of legos!
My favorite...the coffee shop!
Duplo Valley is designed for little kids. It was adorable, and Madeline had a blast.
This boat ride was a family favorite...we got soaked but had so much fun! You can shoot your water gun at people in the other boats!
Madeline is obsessed with this castle. She's seen it a million times from outside the park so she was pumped to get to go in it. It was a real roller coaster, and she was tall enough so we let her ride it. I was so nervous...she rode next to me with Terry and my Dad in front of us and my mom behind us. I was waiting for her to cry or ask to get off but she LOVED it. She still says it was her favorite ride. There's a dragon inside that "blows snot on you" according to Madeline, and she thought it was the greatest thing ever. She squealed and raised her hands the whole ride. Crazy girl!
Waiting for the dragon coaster!
Then we walked through Miniland...where they built replicas of all different cities out of legos. It was amazing and it made me really want to travel! hah
The fire truck in NYC really sprays water when you push the button!
Of course, there was a ton of Star Wars stuff....Twayne loved it!
If you haven't seen the Lego Movie....here's the theme song. It plays ALL over the park and I'm afraid is permanently on replay in my head!
It was a good start to Mother's Day weekend!
