On Thursday

We went to Legoland. (Matt and Jason went skiing on Wednesday. I'll let Matt do that post if he so desires.)


Eleanor had a lot of fun riding the little rides.


Eleanor really liked the "giraffe car ride" where she got to ride around and look at almost life-sized animals built out of Legos. Matt was taking the pictures from his "zebra car." We didn't get any pictures from the fairy tale ride, but it was fun as well. They had various fairy tale characters (the three pigs, Little Red Riding Hood, the three billy goats gruff, etc) all built out of Legos and animated along a "river." We rode in a "green, green boat" to see it all.

The most amazing part of this park is Miniland, where there are replicas of various cities. We saw a trolley driving down the streets of San Francisco, a bull rider in the mid-west, taxis driving around NYC, a marching band in front of the White House and so much more...of course, all built out of Legos. Eleanor's favorite part of this was walking along the curb and pressing the various buttons that made things play music or move.


Best of all, we found a Chick-Fil-A to eat at on our way home! Mmmm...nuggety goodness. LA has 5,034 Starbucks, but no Chick-Fil-A's. What kind of city is this???

I need to find my Legoland pictures from 1999-2000 (I was there for New Year's so I'm not sure what year I was actually at Legoland). I love that place. I got my friend a Darth Vader Legoman keychain as a souvenir. Haha. My brother and I rode some castle roller coaster. I can't remember its name but it was for older kids.

No Chic-fil-A???!!!!

When we come to visit you at Fuller (you know, in 2015 or something), we want to go to lego-land too.

I am jealous.

I see San Francisco! And soon you will too! Although, you should know that, in reality those sites are a little farther apart--like, half the city with miles of ugliness in between--and therefore more difficult to walk to.

P.S. We want Chic-fil-a too! :(
