Lego Land Florida

 At it again.
When we went to Florida...just 2 weeks ago
it was just a bonus added to our Shreveport trip.
We weren't sure when we would be down next, I told Donna
maybe we will try to make the boys' Bdays
when she said she was not doing a party but Lego Land instead
we were in!
I flew down on Friday with the girls.
 All for these 2 boys who turned 5 while we were there.
We went directly from the airport to Grandma and Grandpa Willis'
house to have dinner and pre-birthday celebrations.
 We also went down for the sunshine.
Sidewalk chalk or snow....hmmm hard choice.
 Have you seen sidewalk tattoos before?
They apparently last for at least a week, you put them on
the cement and color inside.
 Donna and Eme working on a masterpiece.
 Sunday Feb 3rd
{the boy's actual birthday}
we hit Lego Land Florida.
 Emery always up for posing.
 Thanks for letting us crash the Birthday guys!
Bob and Donna with their Birthday boys.
 Can we go in already!?!
{Jeremy actually ended up flying in Tampa on Saturday
so his Mom and cousin Shaelyn got to come too}
 You cannot get over how stinkin cute everything is
everywhere! Of course all made of Legos.
 Just starting out our day.  Emery will guide us it looks like.
 Double decker carousel.
{and our first meltdown of the day, for not getting to ride
upstairs.  I mean it's so rough being a kid having to go
to theme parks}
 Don't worry Bob, Croix has got this.
 Who is excited to be driving?
 Ellie and Shaelyn.
 Everyone got to ride.
Donna don't blink soon they will be 16 and really driving you around!
 Ogre hunting!
{we have a little inside joke about this}
I found the treasure.
 Pirate show on the water.
With real Lego guys water skiing and doing tricks on the water.
 More treasure.
 Batman and Robin our heroes.
 On a scale from 1 to laying on a lego
how painful was this really Bob?
 I could have just walked around the park looking
at how creative there were with the Legos everywhere.
 Can you see Emery's pure excitement?
We thought she was too little, but ended up being able to
drive her own car.  Probably the kids' favorite ride all day.
The boys had the driving thing down.
 Luke I am your Father!
 Yes it was all made of Legos.
Nice representation there Bob.
 Mr. Las Vegas telling Donna about who know what,
she is acting like she really cares :)
 In this area of the park they had several landmarks and
places built all in Legos.  They were all spot on!
New York, San Fran, Vegas, Florida, Daytona Speedway, etc.
 Don't worry guys I got this,
3 kids in my stroller.
 My favorite ride
{no I didn't ride it}
but it was so cute, and they rocked back and forth.
 "Mom can I go to Lego Land,
all my friends are going"
haha, thanks Grandma Linda for coming and bringing 
this guy over to us.  We had lots of fun. 
The perfect theme park day ever.
Amazing weather and NO crowds at all.
 Happy Birthday Croix and Cooper!
Thanks for the perfect day.
 Such a fun day, glad Grandma got to see the 
excitement and fun the girls had.
 On our way out of the park,
until next time Lego Land.
 On Monday we hit Daytona Beach.
I wonder why when we lived there we didn't go to
the beach more.
 And of course we ate at Boondocks,
and fed the fish too.
Emery, Ellie, Croix and Cooper.
Best little buds.

Bob and Donna had heard that going to Lego Land on Super Bowl
Sunday is the day to go because of no lines or crowds.
Man there were right! 
We literally walked off rides and right back on.
The weather could not have been nicer.
We felt like we had the park to ourselves.
It is the perfect park for kids our kids' ages.  All aimed at their level,
plus had a few adult rides too.  The boats were really fun too.
Throughout the park would be cute little chipmunks in the trees,
made of legos, or by the safari ride a monkey hiding in the
tree with a banana.  You can't even believe how spot on
everything made with Legos is.  Oh and get the apple fries
when you are there, delish!
The weather, lack of lines and crowds,
and the buy an adult get a kid free coupons Donna had,
made it the best theme park day we have had.
Thanks for letting us crash Wendlands!

The kit was from Costco. With lots of colors of chalk and several tattoos. :)
