Legoland has snow around Christmastime, so we decided to check it out this year. The kids LOVED it.
The helicopters was one of Kate's favorite rides. She could barely reach the controls and had to really strain to even get one finger on the joy sticks, but she was determined.
This was our first visit to the Legoland Hotel. They have a sleeping area for the parents and a separate area for the kids with bunk beds, a TV, and a little game.
They even had a box of Legos for them to play with in the room.
Inside the room, there was a little treasure box. You had to find the answers to some clues from around the hotel to find out the combination and open the treasure. Inside, they put a Lego mini figure for each kid, a magazine, and chocolate coins. Kate kept going back to see if there were more coins in there. There weren't.
This is in the kids' room area.
Nate and the excited kids
Downstairs at the hotel, there was a castle and pirate ship they could play in.
Of course, we had to pan for gold. That's one of their favorite things to do at Legoland.
The snow area was so much fun!
There was even "snow" falling!
At the end of the day, we watched the lighting of the Lego Christmas tree.
At bedtime, the kids watched Christmas cartoons till it was lights out. Each bed had a little light they could turn on and off. We could hear Kate turning hers on and off over and over again till Grant would tell her to cut it out.
Breakfast at the hotel
Day 2 we did more rides than we did the first day.
Kate was a MUCH better driver this time around.
We had such a great time! I can't wait to go back again soon!
