Legoland with the family

Tuesday, December 6, 2011
This past weekend Brad & Karin brought the kids down and we went to Legoland.  I've got LOTS of photos to share since it is hard to edit when Elijah & Aliyah are so darn cute. {Proud Aunt over here}  It was great to have them stay with us for the weekend... something we never were able to do when we lived across the country.

I went without my camera {which was kinda nice} so most of these photos are from Brad & Karin, with a few IPhone photos thrown in.  {My Droid finally was causing me enough headaches to make the switch.}

...as for getting back to blogging about sewing & quilting... yeah I want to do that too.  I just need to finish unpacking... and find some time to sew... my machine probably thinks I forgot about it by now.

The place was decked out in a winter theme.

not sure what was going on here... but clearly it was brad's fault!


playing

Elijah & Aliyah liked the mini-cities



so did Aliyah



My favorite were the mini scenes from Star Wars








life size Chewbacca

Elijah wasn't so sure about Chewie at first...

But then went for it

lego boats... this would have been a nice relaxing cruise if SOMEONE hadn't decided to play bumper-boats!

up in the air again

practicing really early for her driver's test

Snow in California?
yes... snow...

Aliyah enjoyed the slide...


..and so did Elijah

lego art!
I loved these things... they were like quilts made from legos

What is Poppop doing??

Nap time?

up up and away!

Save the bank!!

hanging out...
Keeping Aliyah from running off was not an easy task!

building mini-figs

why were we the target?

coming down

Looks like it was so much fun! They get big so fast, it's awesome that you're close and can be the super cool, fun Aunt all the time now.

Love Legoland. Seems they added a few things since I was there. It is such fun for the younger set, no rides you have to be so tall to go on and just so much hands on. Glad you had a good time.
