It’s hard to eat healthy in legoland.
There’s not a lot of good choices. Not a lot of apples (though there are apple fries) or carrots or salads. We did find the latter though in the pizza emporiu, but we also found, you know, pizza. The Prettiest-girl-in-the-world ate salad while the boys and I piled pizza and onto our plates like we were never going to be fed, again.
My excuse? I can’t eat much with my teeth being so sore. Crunchy salads just can’t be done, yet. Yeah, you heard me. Can’t be done. In a few days, maybe, but not now. However, had I been able to eat a salad, the truth is, I doubt I would have.
After all, it was closing at 6. By the time we finished lunch, it was 1. That left 5 hours (and at least 30 min of that would have to be spent in the lego store.)
So we had to get our butts in gear.
Here is the adventure in pictures…
First, the oldest and I explored the ruins of ancient lego-egypt via a minecart with a laser, (where, I might add, using said laser – a common weapon of that time – I scored the HIGHEST total on our little mining cart where the goal, for some reason, was to shoot everything in sight), while the youngest and the Prettiest-girl-in-the-world went on a plane ride, and elevator ride. We had lineups, they had none, but fun was had.
Then Joe discovered he’s a hat guy. It wasn’t even his hat. He stole it from the oldest and refused to give it back.
He also began talking about himself in the 3rd person. The appropriate authorities were contacted.
But Legoland had something great in store for the boys…
Chewie waited for them at the entrance to the path of star wars. Rorrrrraah
The youngest wanted to shake hands with every lego star wars character. How cool was that? I was just glad they’d Kragle’d the pieces together. The boy’s got a strong grip.
I’ve fallen and I can’t get up. Ok, you saw that joke coming, but make no mistake, this recreation of the battle on Hoth was amazing. The boys told me about every model on this battlefield.
The mighty Sith lord, Darth Vadar met us outside the sunglasses shop. I have no idea why he was hanging around there, but the oldest had to see how he measured up.
We got a chance to see New Orleans, Chicago, Vegas, Washingon, DC, San Francisco, Naboo, LA, and the boy’s favourite, NY city. One day, they hope to see the Empire State in person.
They even made friends with lego people who watched us ride the Power Tower, (where we hauled ourselves up a huge tower by a rope), and eat chips while the wind tried to blow away our napkins.
We stopped for food before the boys went off to get their driver’s licenses. It was cold. It was windy. And someone, I’m not saying who, managed to make his face all orange with cheetos dust.
I’m not kidding.
Watch the video.
So far, I think we all had fun! Epic fun.
But the Prettiest-girl-in-the-world? Well, she was so very patient, so keen to let her boys do what her boys wanted to do and asked only one thing…
