This spring I got a newsflash....that there's such a place as LegoLand. I seriously had no idea about such a place. Did you? And as I'm finding out, they are everywhere...kind of like Disneyland. But, as my gracious husband explained...it is a place we should add to the itinerary for our Germany Trip. So, with some gift money, that is just what we did after our visit with his siblings (who live very close to the place).
Pictures below can tell you the highs and lows of the day.
LegoLand, here we come. Matthea was so scared of the music and the people walking on stilts that we couldn't get a picture of her until after we were inside and everything made sense to her. I was worried that we were wasting money, but she had fun once we entered. Thank goodness!
The Lego Train was a favorite for the kids.
But this train ride was NOT. Sick stomachs. Dizzy Heads. Get Us Off of here!
It was our first ride and I thought Uwe was going to kill me for taking the kids on it.
After five minutes of rest, ready for the next. Why is that?
First roller-coaster ride for Marcus and Megan. It was a hit!
Dragon Ride Roller-Coaster...got Marcus to ride with me. We finished and he was glad. But later said he'd like to do it again next time we come. Again, why do we love these stomach turning rides?
"Prisoners of the King" Hmm, says it all, eh?
All of us, well almost all Meg would NOT get on, rode the water ride. My favorite! But...
not Matthea's. Uwe said she screamed through the whole thing. Poor thing...thought she'd like the water and being on a boat. Marcus on the other hand rode this about four times! There was no lines as school was still in session in Germany!
This canoe ride was more up to her speed. Meg was ok with it...actually she wasn't really happy with much that day. I think Meg didn't know what to think of all the things and it was overwhelming...or maybe she was just having one of her "Meg Days".
Of course, I had to have a go.
Taking cover. We were soaked! But after half an hour of walking around we were all dry once again! This place was a boy's dream place for sure!
After spending the entire day at LegoLand, we drove five hours back to Oma and Opa's. Crazy? Probably.
Our trip to England was two days away and we needed to desperately do some laundry and regroup for packing. The nice thing about that trip is that the sun seriously does not go down until 10pm, so we were driving in daylight most of the way there.
