Chicagoland Fun

Steve flew in for the weekend and the boys loved it. 

Or did they just love LEGOLAND!?

Legoland - Schaumburg, IL

If the entrance wasn't awesome enough, the inside was awesome-er.

Not a Baby Jaguar
Silly Monkeys
Scary Spider

Yes, it was a whole jungle made of Lego.  And that was just the beginning!

First, we hit a ride and a 4D movie.


This is our favorite picture because it is typical Henry.  Where is he looking and what is that look on his face?  No clue.  Totally random.  That's Henry.

Then we hit up the best part.  Racing cars.


Car-Making Pit

We could have spent the whole day here.  It was endless Lego to make endless cars racing down the tracks.  All that = boy love.


Even when they exploded -99% of them did- it was still fun rebuilding them and racing all over again.

Wheels Galore

We broke for lunch and a photo session.

Pizza and -gasp- Soda!
Happy Henry
Jake & Mommy

Then we went back for more...

Master Builders

Like a free intensive Lego build session for "Master Builders."  For us, it was a goldfish!

Having Fun.

The instructor sat up front with his own set of Lego and a camera above his hands to show everyone what and how to build.

Bad Blurry Shot

I was floored that 4-1/2 year old Henry could keep up.  But he did. 

And he rocked it!

Goldfish and Friends

It was a stiff entry price, but you got to do everything inside for "free" (well...taking the goldfish home was $5 each kit).  But lunch for 4 was $25 including those two miniature lego men.  So all in, family of four, all day event for under $100 was worth it for these out-of-towners.

Beware, I saw a sign saying Legoland Toronto is opening in 2013!!!  Maybe by then, George will be Lego-ready.

Finally, to wrap up the weekend, I took my favorite shot yet.

I think this epitomizes Summer 2012.

Less than 2 weeks left in the USA!
