The boys LOVE hotels! We are so glad that they love the sense of adventure and excitement like both Jeff and I do. (or maybe the boys just love the cable tv? anything's possible!) After checking out our room, we decided to head to the pool. Jacob (2.5 years) is FEARLESS. And that's a problem. I'm sure he gave me more gray hair yesterday (thank goodness I have a hair appointment next week!) Anyhow... Jacob spent about an hour jumping off the side of the pool with one of us catching him. Zachary (5) also enjoyed that, but luckily, he didn't want to do it quite as long as Jacob did. I think they succeeded in wearing out mom and dad, when we had really wanted to wear them out!
One kid on a roll-a-way bed and one in the king size bed with us did not make for the best night's sleep, but it was definitely worth it to see them at the festival today! HUGE piles of legos for the kids to play in, build, knock down. It was AWESOME!
|Doesn't that look like fun?! A pile of Legos!|
There were several different types of activities geared to all different age levels. Lego did a fantastic job making sure that no matter the age, everyone would have fun! Walking around the exhibit was almost as fun (at least for the grown-ups) as playing. There were several character statues (Lightning McQueen, Darth Vader, Batman just to name a few). The kids were excited to see some of their favorite characters and have their pictures taken with them.
Building cars to race down the speedways, building castles and farms, wow! No matter what we did, I just love seeing how their brains work, how they figure out how to build things and their look of accomplishment when it all fits together.

garden hoses and flowers.
