Legoland Adventure: Day 2

We started our second day at Legoland on Monday bright and early!
Here we are standing in front of the big sign. We were ready for a day of adventure for sure!

I had my game face on and everything. Grrr!

Our first stop was Pirate Cove. We picked up this awesome hat and sword. I LOVED them! And wore the hat most of the day, as you will soon see...

One of our first rides of the day was a boat. I steered and Mommy hit the gas.

It was a bit scary with me driving but we managed to make it back to dry land in one piece.

Then I caught this shark! It's almost as big as Pop-Pop's fish, I think.

Then Daddy and I flew this airplane.

Wheee! Hi, Mommy!

After my flying lesson, Daddy and I decided to put out a few fires. This fire engine was powered by Daddy. You can't see me because I am sitting pretty in a big comfy seat. Hee, hee!

Here we are manning the hose. We were awesome firemen!

On the way back, Daddy got some "assistance" from the ride attendant. It was hard work!

Then it was time for me to drive a car. All by myself. It was very hard to remember to steer and push the gas at the same time. I only got about a quarter of the way around the track but I tried my best and felt very proud. If you look closely, you can see Daddy coaching me from behind the fence. What a guy!

After my driving adventure, Mommy and I drove a helicopter! It was fun! Hi, Daddy!

We went really high and could even spin around. It was a blast!

Then it was time for a little train ride. Daddy and I had to wait in line so we practiced our best pirate faces for Mommy. Arrrr!

Oh, boy, a train! Daddy and I were all ready!

The train was the best! I mean look at that awesome Lego corn, will ya.

After the train, I spent a few minutes playing in the Duplo kiddie area. The slide was the best, as you can see.

After lunch, we were off for more fun! Our next ride was a storybook boat. I had to wear my pirate hat for this one.

Oh, boy, look at all those books. This is going to be a great ride!

Hey, there are the three little pigs. But where is the wolf?

There he is, huffing and puffing away. Or as I like to say "hupping and pupping."

There's Prince Charming on his noble steed. He even had a cell phone. I think he was calling for a pizza. Silly!

We also saw Sleeping Beauty...

And Little Red Riding Hood and her "grandma." It was quite a ride!

On our way to our next ride, we saw this neat triceratops. He looked almost real to me!

Then Mommy and I were off on a safari adventure! Ooooo, are those zebras? Cool!

The ride moved a bit too fast to take pictures but we saw lions, pandas, elephants, gazelles and more. It was neat! Daddy caught a photos of us at the end of the ride. Whew, we made it!

Then we went back to Miniland USA to see some models we had missed the day before. The best part was Washington, D.C. There were memorials...

And more memorials. The Washington one was particularly cool.

Here's the Capitol Building. Awesome!

And even the White House. If you look really closely you will see Secret Service guys on the roof. Neat!

We even saw President Obama and The First Lady riding down the street in a limo.

Finally, we were off to see the new Star Wars models. It's the newest attraction at the park. Looks like Mommy and Peanut were excited!

They had this cool sand sculpture at the entrance. We loved it!

The exhibit included replications of many popular scenes from the movies. There was the Millennium Falcon...

And the At-Ats in Hoth...

And the Ewoks' tree houses on Endor.

There were lots of those cool buttons to push in this area, too. I think I pushed them all. Cool, huh, Daddy?

Us boys couldn't resist taking a photo with a life-sized replica of Darth Vader.

A highlight of the afternoon was visiting the model workshop. This is where they make all the cool Lego models you see all over the park. Neat!

After all that fun, it was time to take a break with an ice cream cone. Oh, boy! Here's Mommy bringing us our treats.

It was delicious!

What a great day, huh? We sure had fun at Leogoland! I can't wait to come back again very soon.

Stay tuned for day three of our Carlsbad trip...

That looks like a great time, Noah! I'd have to say though that the highlight of my afternoon would have been the ice cream cone - although I do have a thing for miniature stuff!

Mimi said...

WOW - another day of FUN! Love all the photos. You really had a cool vacation, Noah!
Miss and Love you -
