My kids LOVE legos. Nate is a little obsessed. We finally had to move all his legos to his room, and they have taken over.....seriously!
For years we have been saving for a trip to Legoland in California. I printed out a map of Legoland and put it on a big jar, like 6 years ago. We saved up our coins in that jar with the dream of a family vacation. Lily had never been on an airplane, and Nate just as a baby, so he didn't remember. We saved coupons from their Brickmaster magazine and we waited for the perfect opportunity to finally get to the Holy Land, Legoland.
We finally made it last November. It was Veterans Day weekend, so the kids only missed a few days of school, and we stayed in Oceanside at our Worldmark condo.
We cashed in the jar of coins and got $202! The kids split that money and that was their spending money for the week. They were really good about not asking for extras because they had their own money, and when that was gone, they were done.
The whole trip was amazing. The weather was  a perfect 72 ever day and the park was beautiful. I loved how hands on everything was. There were legos to play with while you stood in line, and plenty of hands on entertainment throughout the whole park.
We were lucky enough to have family come visit while we were there and it made this Auntie's heart happy to spend time with the girls.
I am thankful we made it to Legoland before the kids got any older, because it would have lost some of the magic on older kids. Although.....Nate and Lily are trying to figure out how to go back as "helpers" with my sister and her kids!
