FYI To those who are against Zoos. We need them, They teach people about the importance of nature. They provide scientists with opportunities to study wild animals. And they are also important because thousands of species of wild animals are in danger of dying out and with out the help of zoos and the people who work in them so many more species would be extinct. They also play a big part in our ecosystem. Which is sadly being taken for granted.. Lets think about the future people and how OUR children will be living in it.Read More

This was going to be a more elaborate post, But along with just every day things needing to get done in life. Sprinkle some OCD and a toddler on top I can never meet my deadline anymore. The cherry on top was that I just had currently typed several paragraphs and this website crashed on me, Causing me to start over...Also I have yet to make time to upload photos from Zach's nice camera. So I suppose a LEGOLAND Part 2 will have to come soon.
So, Legoland. A spur of the moment trip. Because well, With Zach's schedule we do not always get to plan far ahead in advance at all really. With his career things can change at a moment notice. As they always do. It just so happened that I had the upcoming week off when Zach was coming back from a work trip. We had discussed going away for a few days. Since rarely given am opportunity we decided to do Legoland. We were originally planning to take Blake for his 3rd Birthday. But we beat the tourist crowds and the summer heat. As well as Blake having free admission till he is three years of age.. Decision was made.
We booked two days for Legoland, And a stay in the new recently opened Castle Hotel, that is on the property alongside the park. The wizard themed room was ours . They also have a kids corner which is basically their own bedroom inside your hotel room . Of course elaborately decorated, with Wizards, Magic, Legos. Downstairs offered a Dragon themed restaurant that offers kids friendly menu items. Just outside an amazing playground next to a heated pool and a stage for performances. Also provided was a grassy area and chairs and a few benches. Lego movies were projected on a large outdoor movie screen. It really is a perfect kid friendly hotel. Honestly a kids dream. I would recommend kids 10 and under, Because mostly everything is slow and small as far as rides go.
Because we stayed at the Lego Hotel, We were given the opportunity to access the park an hour early prior to opening time. Which I assume is a big plus during busy summer and break days. But we were able to ride mostly everything without having to wait more then 10-15 minutes. Blake was even able to get away with the Junior Driving School. Which is basically a bunch of toddler driving a mini lego car on a mini track, Bumping into each other repeatedly. It was pretty damn adorable. My favorite part of the trip.
MiniLand, Was an area of basically little towns built of entirely legos. Which was another favorite. Blake oddly loved it and we spent a decent amount of time there both days. It did have interactive options where the kids can press buttons and the lego car or boat would move and make a sound. StarWars Mini Land was pretty extravagant and impressive. Surrounded by Millions and Millions of tiny legos.. You can get an idea from watching the videos below.
The hotel offered a buffet brunch. Blake and I took advantage of it our first morning there, But as you can guess it was a bit chaotic with all the children everywhere. Dad stayed back in the room.. Good call. But I needed coffee in my life.
It was a great time though. I defiantly recommend it for the littles.. Check out the Instagram stories I have posted below!
So as you can tell by the title, I am revamping my blog, and website. I mostly use my website for my dog walking business.. I have business cards hahaRead More
