six chilly miles, then starbucks.

on saturday night, we saw the best christmas pageant ever musical at the orlando rep. it was so cute! i highly recommend seeing it.

these boys had so much fun.

after a quick nap, we headed back to the resort to play.
it was so great to catch up with mike and karen!
we had a busy, but fun and festive weekend. we love when friends come to visit.
how was your weekend?
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.
We had such a great time!
i’m not sure why they are sitting in that spot, but she’s “reading” to him and it was the cutest moment of the night.
we headed out to the fall festival that was held at crosby’s school on friday night.
ooey gooey fun!
brains and eyeballs!
crosby was excited to show us his class science project!
i was back at it on saturday morning with an early alarm to meet the girls for a run. i wasn’t sure how it would go, but i got in five miles and some quality time with the girls.
after our run, we chatted over coffee at starbucks. it was a great start to saturday.
we took on the monster taco for lunch at tijuana flats for the day of outrageousness. greg and i definitely shared it.
we headed down to legoland for brick or treat on saturday. it was so fun! more photos to come tomorrow.
sunday consisted of church, food prep, and family photos! we had a great weekend home after two weekends away. this month is flying by!
how was your weekend?
crazy girls at camp on friday.
it was an early night for us on friday as my alarm was set for 3:45am on saturday. we got an early start for our 16 miles and still finished with the sun blazing down. overall it was a great run!
we headed down to legoland for a few hours during the day. it was hot but we had a great time.
getting pumped for the ninjago movie.
after a busy morning, we spent the afternoon in the pool with popsicles of course!
family movie night! we watched pete’s dragon.
i was slacking on the pictures this weekend, but we had a good one!
how was your weekend?
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!
friday night date night
saturday morning started early with soccer pictures and a game for crosby.
kenley had a bye week, so she was the designated cheerleader for the day!
after soccer, we headed to legoland! we played in the water park, then stayed at the beach retreat, which was so adorable! more pictures to come.
we went back to legoland for a couple of hours today before heading home.
we had such a fun weekend! how was yours?
after an uneventful friday night, i got up on saturday morning and headed downtown for the best damn race half marathon.
it was a tough race, but i finished! race recap and lots of pics to come.
greg and the kids came down to catch the end of the race, which i was so happy about. they hit up the park to play after the race.
the weather was absolutely perfect this weekend.
a walk and a bike ride on saturday afternoon.
we headed out early this morning to go to legoland!
it was the lego batman movie day at the park so there were some fun things to do. we built a (very) small part of the joker and got to see it complete before we left.
as well as several of the small squares on the big mosaic. we had to pull crosby away from the table or he would have built the rest of little squares.
they also go to meet lego batman! crosby holding his hand melts my heart, he loved it.
hanging out it the dino while kenley rides the roller coaster.
they had the ride to themselves.
we had such a good time at the park today. i needed a batman shirt to fit in though!
we had a busy weekend, but it was sure fun!
