On Saturday, we headed to Legoland for a final trip before our passes expire. We’ve had so many great experiences there the last few years, but we are ready for a little break. The Wrights joined us on Saturday too, which made it even better!
We rode the horses for the first time ever!
LEGO Friends are their favorite!
There were a few new Star Wars additions to Miniland, which Crosby was very excited about! I think LEGO Chewbacca was everyone’s favorite.
We rode almost every ride in the park, in just a few short hours.
It was hot and sweaty, but we had so much fun!
See ya soon, Legoland!
We kicked off our 4th of July holiday with the Firecracker 5k in our community! Kenley and I signed up the morning of, so there wasn’t much training involved in this 5k. My expectations were low and I knew there would be a significant amount of walking involved. Kenley was excited that her friends were there too!
She did a good job but you can definitely tell the difference from a 5k in January versus a 5k in July. It was hot and humid!
After the 5k, we had some friends over for food, frose, and fireworks!
We had such a fun and eventful day celebrating our independence!
threatening skies following our lunch date.

To kick off the first couple days of summer, we headed to Hollywood Studios on June 1st. This was a much anticipated trip as it was the first ride on the Tower of Terror and Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster for a few of the friends. The morning started with a trip to Starbucks to fuel the day.
We thought we may have time for Star Tours before our first fast pass but it took a while to get into the park, so we headed straight for Tower of Terror. We ended up doing child swap and taking turns going up in the tower. Kenley lucked out and got to ride it twice.
After Tower of Terror we saw the Frozen Sing Along show. This was our first time seeing the show and I am truly disappointed in us. The show is hilarious! I kept telling Greg that I can’t wait for him to see it.
We hit up Star Tours next before it was lunch time!
We opted for some indoor activities after lunch and saw the Muppets in 3D! It was a cute show, but not as cool in there as we had hoped.
Before heading over to what we thought would be our last fast pass of the day, we met Chewbacca!
Riding Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster with six year olds is the best. The looks on their faces are priceless. They both love the ride so much, but the start of it gets them every time.
Half of our party were able to snag an additional fast pass for Toy Story in the evening, so Remi in guest relations hooked us all up with fast passes AND free ice cream for the kids. Obviously, we got a selfie with him. Our day had been extended a couple more hours, so we headed back out for some dinner.
We caught the Little Mermaid show before ending the day with Toy Story! It was such a long day, but so much fun!
We kicked off summer the best way we knew how and these mamas were tired by the end of the day!
kenley started her summer with soccer camp at ucf and finished on friday! she had such a great time.
