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.
our friday started off unexpectedly and ended with kenley being treated for lice. thankfully, we caught it early and the lice troopers did a great job. let’s hope that’s the last time we have to go there.
on saturday, we got up early to head down to legoland! we had a fun visit and i will share more photos this week!
after legoland, we stopped at hollywood studios on the way home for our first visit to toy story land! the green army men may be my favorite.
the wait wasn’t too bad for the alien swirling saucers, so we decided to try them out!
love these boys.
our favorite spot in hollywood studios, the baseline taproom.
we did two parks in one day and it was hot! we’re crazy, but it’s also summer so why not? the kids were so great and we had such a fun day!
a beautiful ending to saturday.
a date with my boy!
we saw paw patrol at the performing arts center!
the show was super cute and the boys loved it!
school supply shopping! their off to first grade in a few weeks.
we had a busy weekend! aside from our adventures, we spent the rest of the time cleaning, food prepping, and doing so. much. laundry.
After our trip to Legoland for Brick or Treat last year, I was sure to put it on our calendar for this year. It’s such a fun event and this year did not disappoint. Even better, the Herolds joined us for the fun.
We started with The Groovin’ Graveyard which was a show similar to STOMP. It was super cute, but I think Greg and I enjoyed it more than the kids. We also met Frankenstein!
After riding a couple rides, we headed over to Brick or Treat! The line looked crazy long, but it moved way faster than we expected. The girls loved walking from station to station while the boys opted to ride in style. We loved looking at all the decorations. Greg really wants a pumpkin Lego head for our front yard.
After Brick or Treating, we went back to ride some rides. Crosby got to ride the horse ride for the first time! You must be four years old to ride the horses, but since he was less than a week away, I led them to believe he was already four. Kenley was sure to correct me on the fact that he wasn’t four quite yet. Either way, Crosby was a happy camper.
We had a quick dinner and stayed for the 3D fireworks show. Afterwards, we loaded up the car in our pjs and headed home! The kids fell asleep pretty quickly in the car after a long day.
To end the month of April, we headed down to Legoland to check out the new Beach Retreat. We started the day at the Legoland water park before heading over to check in to our room. We drove over to the Beach Retreat and checked into right from our car with the drive-thru check in. It was super convenient.
Our room was in Seagull’s Cove and we shared a bungalow with the Herolds. Each cove has its own playground that is visible from each room. The kids loved walking right out to play.
The rooms are super cute! Just like the Legoland Hotel, there is a small separate room with bunk beds for the kids. The kids didn’t go right to sleep by any means, but Greg and I sat on the porch after they finally went to bed. The set up of the room is just so much better than a standard hotel room and it really makes such a difference!
After we got settled, we headed over to the pool for some swimming before dinner. There was also another larger playground and a bar right by the pool. Once we saw the set up, we knew we should have spent the afternoon at the resort instead of the water park. We definitely made a mental note for next time.
After swimming, the kids played Legos at the bungalow until it was time for dinner. The restaurant was also right by the pool so we walked over to have dinner.
The next morning, everyone was up early! We headed over for breakfast, which is included in your reservation, before heading back to Legoland.
We spent a couple hours at the park riding roller coasters and rides. Since we all went to bed late and got up early, we headed out after lunchtime so the kids could nap the whole way home.
Overall, we had such a great time with the Herolds. The Beach Retreat is so so cute and we will definitely be back!
