I loved playing with Legos as a kid (and honestly still do when I get the chance) so it wasn’t hard for the boys to talk me into going to Legoland.

Connor’s mind was blown; his favorite thing to do currently is build robots out of Duplo Legos. Everywhere he looked there were “Lego robots”, as he says. He could have spent all day just looking at all the Lego models and playing with the room full of Duplo Legos, even if there wasn’t any rides.

Gavin also enjoyed Legoland but he was most interested in the rides. He got to drive a bumper car around a race track and went on his first (little) roller coaster.

We also went to the Sea Life Aquarium, because it was part of the package deal we got, but that can be safely skipped. There are much better aquariums around, such as the Birch Aquarium at UCSD.

The boys had so much fun we ended up “upgrading” our entrance tickets to annual passes. SO, now we get to go see the “Lego robots” any time we want.




It was the first time we got to experience the Legoland Water Park. As expected, the boys had a blast.

We finished off the day enjoying the rest of Legoland. It was Connor’s first time driving!

We spent our 4th of July having fun at Legoland. We saw the new One World Trade Center skyscraper unveiled in Miniland. The boys had a blast doing a special 4th of July scavenger hunt. After hanging out all day, we were treated to a fireworks show after the sun went down.

Getting some more use out of our Legoland annual passes.



Gavin was off at a Padres game with a buddy of his, so Connor and I had a day together at Legoland. He had a blast getting to choose everything we did and getting all the attention 😉


The boys wanted to visit Legoland to build at their various Lego build stations, so we headed over to Carlsbad. We also got to check out the Christmas decorations.


We made a trip to Legoland so the boys could enjoy some special Christmas holiday events going on. They colored some Christmas tree ornaments and did a scavenger hunt to earn a few holiday pop badges.


Gavin wanted to hang out at Legoland for the day before his birthday, since this year his actual birthday is shared with Easter. After having fun on all the rides, we went to have a birthday dinner at the nearby Pizza Port for his favorite meal – pizza!


We were given some Legoland tickets a while back, so we decided to use them to check out the holiday decorations.

Although the boys have outgrown most of the rides, they still had a good time. Especially at the end of the night, when we rode the Ninjago ride over and over, until the park closed.
