Here are a few highlights...
At Legoland, they have a lot of stuff made out of Legos...
like the entire downtown of Berlin.
And Allianz Arena.
There are over 1 million Legos in this one. Each one of those people is a little Lego guy or gal. So crazy. Somewhere there's a guy who says, "I build enormous stuff out of Legos for a living."
Of course they have a lot of amusement park rides. This was one of the few that I wasn't also on, so it was a lot easier to take a picture. (Yup, you guessed it, those pterodactyls are made of Legos.) They have a few small roller coasters and a log flume, but nothing really extreme.
We watched a magic show and performers from the Chinese National Circus. (I anticipate Charlotte attempting a lot of crazy stretches and balancing acts in the coming days.)
They also have an area called the Duplo village, which is a giant playground for toddlers. We spent a bunch of time there.
Charlotte and Toby hard at work in the "Lego Test Lab."
Now, if you are a Star Wars fan, you may be excited to hear that Legoland has an annual Star Wars event. I did not know this. And my kids have never seen Star Wars. So of course we were there for the event! There were characters all over the park, and the guy who played something Grievous doing a meet and greet. There were lightsaber fighting demos. And I will have the Empirial March in my head for days.
Despite all of this, THESE are the characters my daughter wanted a picture with.
Oh, heaven help us in 10 years.
If you can't fight 'em, join 'em.
I forced my terrified children into one photo with a couple of the 100 or so stormtroopers marching around.
So, Legoland was a huge hit. :) And we all survived, despite the menacing looks from Darth Vader... or now that I think of it, maybe he was just wondering where I got that crepe. ;)
