The second happiest place on earth

Disneyland might be said to be the happiest place on earth, but I think Legoland probably comes a close second. One of our reasons for heading down to Southern California was to check up this theme park; a Lego lovers heaven.

We made the mistake of telling Mr Oliver about our trip a couple of months in advance. Every morning since, he would ask us if it was Legoland time yet (he believed it was Disneyland made out of Legos. He's not that far off really). When the big day FINALLY arrived and we told him it was time to go to the car, he replied with 'no thanks! I stay in hotel and play cars'. Ah, toddlers. Seriously?!?

He was definitely excited once we were there though!

We took it in turns taking Ollie on rides while the other waited with Austin. The lines were all pretty manageable, there was only one ride that had a 60 minute wait and we happily skipped it. I have to say, although Disneyland is a place I would go without kids, Legoland isn't. The rides are pretty much all catered for the younger crowd - even our petite Ollie could ride most of them, there was only a rollercoaster and a couple of other rides he was too short for.

In addition to the rides, there was also a big miniatures section of different US cities.

The rides were cute, the miniatures were well done, but I think my favourite part of Legoland was just seeing all the Lego structures everywhere. There were dragons, animals, Star Wars, a castle, pirates... Everything was made out of Lego. I was a Lego mad kid (as is Ollie), so we thoroughly enjoyed checking out all the Lego works of art.

It was a full on, but fun day! I don't need to go back again in a hurry, but I would love to visit again when the boys are older and we can take them to the Legoland water park... It looked pretty awesome.
