Legoland for Linc's Bday

Sunday, December 1, 2013


Lincoln's one request for his 5th birthday- to go to Legoland! We hadn't been yet, and we could fit it in nicely at the end of our Thanksgiving travels, AND Grammie and Grandad agreed to keep Rosemary with them for the day... so it worked out great! SO, on Lincoln's actual birthday, the four of us went to Legoland! We didn't tell them till the night before, when we gave Linc his Lego Batman shirt, so it was very exciting!
Legoland was great! I would definitely recommend it to anyone with kids under the age of 10 or so- or any Lego enthusiast! There are lots of rides- we spent a full day there and rode almost every ride. And it is geared more towards younger kids, so it was great for our family. At Disney there are still many rides that Lincoln is too young or small for, but he could ride them all here, yet they were thrilling enough that we all enjoyed them! There was a great pirate-themed show that incorporated boats, waterski and wake boarding tricks, in a nod to the former Cypress Gardens shows that used to be at the same location. And there are, of course, a TON of very impressive Lego models!
The service at the park was great too. We got Lincoln a "Birthday button" to wear soon after we arrived, and EVERY employee we saw stopped and said Happy Birthday to him. It was very impressive and commendable how they reached out to make him feel special! It was a great day!















One of the kids' favorite parts of the day was trading Lego figures- the staff all wear them on their name tags and they have to trade with you if you ask them. So we bought one for each kid after we arrived, and they spent the rest of the day finding ones they liked and trading. Georgia's final one was a cowgirl, and Lincoln's was a baseball player.
