CA Adventure: LegoLand

Hey Y'all:


If you've never been to LegoLand in Carlsbad, CA you don't know what you are missing. It amazed me to see what creative minds could do with the tiny plastic bricks!


Thankfully unlike Disney our day wasn't rainy although it was a little chilly we still had so much fun. Lego Land is tucked away in an area called Carlsbad that is actually home to quite a few corporate buildings. Unlike Disney or Six Flags if you weren't specifically looking for LegoLand you would totally miss it. There aren't any flashy hotels, restaurants or even gift shops in the area that would give them away. LegoLand is completely hidden and noticeable ONLY by the dedicated parents who want to give their children the treat of their lives.

LegoLand to me was a treat because it was an explosion of the imagination. Almost any structure you can think of can be built with Lego's. We saw elephants, monkeys, lions, pigs, octopus, Little Red Ridding Hood, Hansel and Gretel, Sleeping Beauty and countless other characters including Bob the Builder and Thomas the Tank Engine all built out of Lego's. Amazing!

I really had a wonderful time (sometimes more so then the kids) especially when we went into Miniland! LegoLand dedicated a huge area of the park to mini structures of world famous attractions, from the NYC skyline to the French Quarters in New Orleans and the Eiffel Tower. It was just amazing (I know I've used that word a lot but I can't describe this any better then that!) The Nascar race track was pretty amazing as well! Erick was really impressed, especially with the race cars that actually were motorized and moved around the track. Legoland MiniLand USA is comprised of 20 Million Lego blocks. I loved every single one of them!



Then we had a sweet tasty treat. Legoland Granny Smith Apple Fries! Honey those things were delish! So much so that I've been scouring the net to see if I can find a recipe. According to Leogoland they invented them but I did find this recipe that seems to be pretty close to what we had.


Then Erick and Myles had an opportunity to take pictures with Bob The Builder and watch his 4D movie about building a roller coaster. All in all LegoLand was worth the trip and I highly recommend a visit.


Until next time...
MUAH!
