We are officially Legoland passholders.

Yes.  One full year of unlimited access to Legoland.

We were so excited to be passholders we went to Legoland TWICE last week.

We spent TONS of time in their new Heartlake City area where the Lego Friends perform on stage.

UntitledWe’ve seen the show three times already and she’s loved being able to get up and dance with the girls!

UntitledThe great thing about Legoland is the water.  Not only do they have that awesome water park, but they have splash pads scattered through out the park.  If you know M, you know that she LOVES the water and getting wet.

K got to spend time in the water park too.  She played in the baby/toddler wading pool and got to crawl around a small area of the baby/toddler splash pad.  I wish I could have taken photos, but I didn’t want to risk ruining my phone!

M also got to ride rollercoasters for the very first time.  She went with Hubby on her first coaster.  She LOVED it so much.  She was so excited to ride another one.  We reached another rollercoaster and we were very surprised that she easily reached the 40in height requirement.  I got to go on that other roller coaster with her.  When we asked her which coaster she liked better she said, “Both!”  I love how brave she is!

I’m sure there will be plenty of Legoland stories to come.  I’m so happy we get to have these passes and create these wonderful memories for our girls.

Hubby had a work picnic at the zoo a few weeks ago.

This was our first ‘amusement park’ outing since K was born.  It was definitely an experience.

K no longer wants to be stuck in her little infant carrier when we are out and about, so she’s been sitting in the double stroller just like M.  K differs so much from M when it comes to strollers, carriers and carseats.  M was mostly content being in a carrier or carseat.  M, til this day, LOVES her stroller.

K does not.

K will do everything in her power to get herself out of what she’s restrained in.  This includes arching her back, wiggling while trying to put the harness on her, and crying/screaming until someone takes her out.

K loves being out and watching the world around her.

Our zoo day was pretty quick.  We tried to get to the zoo early, but we got there an hour after the park opened.  We didn’t realize that was the huge morning rush of people.  It felt so crowded.

We took the zoo tram that took us around the entire zoo and saw many of the animals that M wanted to see.  Waiting in that line with two kids was definitely an experience.  M doesn’t do well with lines and would rather be carried through them.  Obviously we had to carry K.  Because there were so many people at the zoo, the line for that tram was long and because we were carrying both kids, we felt like we were in line for an eternity.  Hubby and I tried to switch kids every so often, but neither of us could figure out who was easier to carry.

The tram ride was fun for M because she got to see a good amount of animals.  K started to get antsy towards the end and started squirming and whining.  I guess tram rides aren’t interesting to seven month olds..

After the tram, we went to the company picnic.  K finally got to get out of the stroller for an extended period of time.  M got to eat ice cream and get her face painted.  She had a great time!

Unfortunately, the heat got to us and we had decided to go home once the company picnic was over.

We intended to go back later when the day was cooler, but once we got home and became settled, it was hard to get the momentum to get out of the house again.

We had a great time, but it was very tiring.  I’m glad we got to go and took some fun pictures that I can’t wait to scrapbook!

Last week,  the family and I took a little Disney vacation.

I’ve been going to Disneyland for all my life.  This was my first time staying at the Disneyland Hotel.

I made Hubby slow down while turning the corner into the hotel parking lot so I could take this photo.  Luckily, there wasn’t anyone behind us!

We had such a great time and it really completed the Disney magic for me.

Staying at the hotel really added some extra fun for the whole experience.

The room wasn’t huge, but we had enough room for all of our belongings.  M also had enough room to run around a little bit, but not too much room that should could accidentally hurt herself. 

The best part about the room is the back wall against the bed.  The back wall was a carving of the castle in the park.  There was a little switch on the night table with a little Tinkerbell next to it.  I flipped the switch and the back wall lit up with little LED lights simulating fireworks and stars!   “A dream is a wish your heart makes” also played when the switch was flipped on. 

M LOVED it.  We would have it on all night until she wanted to go to sleep.  She loved flipping the switch so she could hear the song too.

That little detail made the room so magical and special!

We truly had a full Disney experience!

I hope to share more Disney stories and photos in the coming entries.  I just have to load the photos from my camera onto my computer!
