Presidents Day Weekend was just a short time away when I realized that we had a FULL FOUR DAYS OFF with no plans. (This rarely happens, our weekends get booked out fast.) We did some brainstorming then jumped online and scored a great package deal with airfare, lodging and 2 days at LegoLand. We decided not to tell the kids until the day before and we all sat together and browsed the LegoLand website and got excited! We flew out very early Friday morning and arrived in (mostly) sunny San Diego at lunchtime. After checking in to our hotel, we had a little lunch, ran a couple last minute errands (such as snacks, sunscreen & beach toys), and then hit the beach for the afternoon. A little down time before heading out to dinner. (Just as we left the beach, the clouds opened and it POURED for hours. We lucked out with our beach timing.) Lucy fell asleep for a bit and sweet Will let her be as he commanded the cartoons. Dinner was a lot of fun at the nearby Karl Strauss brewpub and we had enough leftovers for dinner the next day.
Up early for the hot breakfast in the hotel lobby then off to day one of LegoLand!
We were at the park from 10am to 5pm, (open to close). It was an exhausting but AWESOME day. We had some dinner and some quiet time in the room and the kids were both out cold by 6:30pm. Stay tuned for Part Two!
