Let go land

A few weeks ago Jen @ Casual Slack and Snowy Woodz @ 70’s- Child were talking about legos. I never played with legos much when I was a kid. But it did remind me of the times I took the Punkster to Legoland.

Have any of you heard of it? I was wondering how much promotion it gets as a vacation destination when we’ve got Disneyland here too. It’s a great little amusement park for the 4-10 year old set located near Oceanside, Ca. Most of the rides are geared toward the kids but they do have one small roller coaster that is pretty decent. They also have some terrific displays of Lego craftsmanship. So I thought I would share some with you.

    Jen – Nice gig. I wonder if they get paid as much as architects? 😉

    Teri – It must take them months, maybe years!

    I could have easily done the new york skyline one. If only they’d have given me enough pieces in the set…. there never seemed to be enough of a certain color to finish any project. Kind of like Lite-brite. Damn them…

    You could ask Chris. He’s an architect. He’ll probably whine about being underpaid, though. You know how those architects can get.

    That’s cool! I had heard of it but have never seen it. We have a modified, watered-down version called Legoland in the Mall of America…

    These structures really do look like they were built with Legos

    I’ll have to keep this on a list of stuff to do with grandchildren one day. My son is 12, and is “so over” the lego thing…what do I know, I’m just the mom.

    I had red & white bricks. Blue & yellow were a luxury for the well off kids.

    MixedNut–
    Unfortunately, it will be a while (I hope) before grandchildren

    My 23 year-old is less mature than my 15 year-old and she has no interest in children, We don’t call her “More, Me, Now!” without good reason

    My 15 year-old has an interest in children, but is too level headed and driven to make a mistake before she’s achieved her goals in life

    My 12 year-old is my only hope
