Lego land Star Wars weekend!

Colton and a life size Lego Chewbacca

So if the previous post doesn't give away the fact that I am a nerd, I must reveal that I am raising up a couple of over-the-top Star Wars fans. (only one step cooler than Trekkies, ok probably two steps cooler). Of all the weekends, of the entire year, that happen to be, the weekend that we went to Legoland, it happened to be Star Wars weekend. Plus we got another use out of last year's Halloween costumes! Colton was SO jazzed that it was Star Wars weekend! And they really went all out and it was hard not to get caught up in all of the fun!

There were so many people (adults) walking around in FULL Star Wars attire, ready for pictures and they had a couple of different events. (To include a costume contest, which we got in line for, in 80 degree humid weather, with about 100 other kids in the 6-8 age group, along with their 500 family members. Needless to say, after dragging it out and Colton not getting picked for any of the trivia questions, we decided to ditch the mob and try to jump on more rides while the lines were low!)

Another great thing about Legoland, is that most of the rides are interactive. For example, you pedal the cars that you drive, and pull yourself up and down a tall structure using a rope. It's hard to explain, but just trust me. It was more than just sitting on a ride.

So sorry it took a while to add these. I completely forgot my camera, so had to buy a disposable, then carry it around for weeks in my purse, then finally remember to get it developed, so without further ado...

Christopher not minding that there were only a couple of the rides that he could go on.
He was just happy to get out of the stroller!

We decided to finish the day with a leisurely boat ride around the park, which traveled around the world (appropriately everything was made of legos!)
