Vacation Continues + Legoland

We were not sure if we were going to be able to go to Legoland today, but luckily the weather was nice and there was no rain in the forecast. I’ve never been to Legoland, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I knew it had legos and some rides, but I thought it was going to be the size of something like a miniature golf course. It was actually the size of a full blown amusement park and my friends who have been there before said that they have expanded it my adding a aqurium-like attraction, althought that was an added cost.

If you are into Legos, this is like a dream come true. They have everything made of lego or Lego themed. There are numerous sculptures that are larger than myself throughout the park. In one section called Mini Lego Land (or something like that), they constructed entire miniature cities like Las Vegas, San Francisco, New Orleans, New York, Washington D.C. and more. They even constructed a new Capitol building depicting President Obama’s inauguration. This was very popular.

They also had some rides, but most it were kiddy rides. I would describe this more as a viewing attraction… and great for taking photos… and I took tons and tons of photo.

One thing that surprised me was that the plants and landscaping was terrific. They had many plants which I don’t see often including a black Bird of Paradise, Variegated Abutilon, many succulents like Aloes in bloom, Cacti, Plectranthus and many, many more. I wanted to take cuttings, but theu were not within reach. One in particular I saw was a beautiful Begonia.

After Legoland, we met up with Rachel, and went to see the movie "He’s Not That Into You". It was a romantic comedy, which I then to like… and I enjoyed this one.

Afterwards, they wanted to get some stuff from Walmart and I found larger peat pots, which I’ve been looking for and a plastic container that matches my existing one where I keep my seeds. I’ve been looking for this for a while now and haven’t found it til now.

We then went to dinner, where I just got a salad, because I’ve been eating so much this vacation.
