On Thursday, we drove straight to Legoland.
Not going to lie…after Disneyland, it was kinda a let down. But that doesn’t mean the kids didn’t love it. It just means that I’m spoiled rotten and have a thing for Disney.
While the big kids and Daddy went on a roller coaster, the little girls and Mama went to the kiddie section.
Alice climbed a palm tree. No big deal.
The kids’ favorite part? Star Wars.
The Lego statues were, actually, amazing.
And apparently 2 days after we left, Tony Hawk left a bag of sweet swag behind the “C” in “Welcome to Legoland” for someone to find. We just missed it.
After Legoland, we headed back to the hotel.
We stayed at the Sheraton Carlsbad and it was amazing. Really, it was. They completely catered to kids without being cheesy and obnoxious. For dinner, they set out a kids’ buffet with chicken strips, pizza, corn dogs, tater tots, veggies, fruit, and salad. Dan and I ordered off the menu: blood sausage tapa (puke), carmelized onion flatbread, roasted asparagus, and a burger with a fried egg on top. So good.
The next day, we headed to the beach for some sun time.
Yes, Jamie needs to eat and yes, Alice is hysterical.
Dan and I needed the relaxing day ‘off.’
Then, back to the pool we went.
We dried off, played some DS, got dressed, and headed out for a walk and dinner.
And the next day, we were up early for the drive back home.
And after 44 hours or so in the car, we were home. The kids leapt out of the car and Dan and I cleared that sucker out. We found countless chicken strips, a 1/2 eaten corn dog, fruit snacks for days, chocolate milk straws, Lego heads, crayons and markers to last a lifetime, books under the seat, DS games hidden under boosters, 2 cats and litter of puppies.
And now we’re home, in our routine. The laundry is almost done, my house is clean (miracle) and I’m blogging. We have zero food in our fridge, so it’s off to Costco we go.
After Disneyland, Costco is cake.
