You might think I’m kidding, but I truly do. I’ve always been a Lego fan. I actually love it when my kids get complicated Lego sets as gifts because I know I’m going to be called in to help put the models together.
In 2001, we visited
Legoland California. I think I was more excited than the kids.
The folks at
TravelSavvyMom recently posted about not spending Thanksgiving at home. I think Debbie commented on her plans to visit the San Diego area this coming Thanksgiving and mentioned that she’d probably try to fit in a visit to Legoland with her kids. Which, I think, makes these fitting Photo Friday submissions

Look, the Lego kids are bigger than my kid!

". . .life is short and the world is wide" - Simon Raven
I'm not sure I've ever consciously planned a trip based on this sentiment, but it definitely influences my subconscious! I've been traveling as frequently and widely as possible since I finished school. And I love it. I love the research, the planning, the fervent packing and the curiosity of exploring somewhere I've never been before.
My husband & I are both Irish - as in born-in-Ireland. But we live in Seattle. We have two boys: wild, boisterous, regular boys. So, since becoming a Mom, I've been a WanderMom. Given our slightly-unusual family situation, routine "visits-to-Grandma" are international trips requiring passports, 10hr-flights and (oh joy!) airport transfers.
I have rants, raves and opinions about how, where & why to travel with kids (start them as young as you can, I say!). I hope to learn even more by researching topics which other wandermoms may be interested in reading about on this blog.
Passports, pacifiers, diapers and gameboys at the ready - off we go!

I can’t wait until my daughter is old enough for legoland. She just got her first Duploes this past weekend.
Never did make it to LegoLand
But we sooo did go away for Thanksgiving last year. A bit weird to eat actual turkey day in a restaurant, and then later tried to make a turkey dinner in a condo? But honestly the kids loved it and won’t forget it! I stumble U.
We love Legoland too! We have been to the one in San Diego a few times, but just had a blast this week at the original Legoland in Denmark!!
The campsite next door is the fanciest one we have ever been to with pony rides and every luxury! Our kidlet lost her 7th tooth there the same day which made her feel like it was a charmed day! 😉
We added to her lego collection and even got them on sale!!
I cannot wait to go to LegoLand when the baby is old enough….I do think that the hubby may have more fun than she does though. lol
So I guess California’s Legoland is just a little bigger than the one at Mall of America? Looks like a fun place!
What is more soothing than those Lego sets? Nothing! You follow the directions, put in your time, and at the conclusion of the project, you have something cool.
Oh that all endeavors were like that!
Thanks for the link!
You’re totally whetting my appetite for our trip in November.
I loved Legos as a kid, too. We don’t have kids as an excuse to visit a place like Legoland, but it looks like so much fun, who needs an excuse?
Almost went last year on our annual trip to CA, but thought our older son (kids are 8 and 12) would be bored. Couldn’t find much that contradicted that. Anyone have another view?
