Nice lie in yesterday – the boys didn’t awaken until after 8:30am 🙂 Clearly needed the sleep
After a nice breakfast and completing the Elf Treasure Hunt, we head into the park to enjoy the rides and of course to meet F.C. Only about 1/5 of the park was open and we felt that while it was nicely decorated (including some ‘snow’ on the hundreds of Christmas trees) the rides were a bit poor really. The kids enjoyed themselves however so all was not lost, and they particularly enjoyed building their own LEGO Christmas tree ornaments and decorating their own gingerbread snowmen 🙂
The Father Christmas experience was really lovely with a little trek through a patch of Christmas trees and half a dozen little wooden summer houses, each with its own F.C. Ours was really good and he had our boys transfixed for the few minutes that we were in with him. They both received a lovely blue cardboard bag containing a really nice LEGO gift – an airplane that they were both more than happy to receive :-). We were worried that Olly might be given a Duplo set but thankfully not.
They both made some purchases in the large shop from their Grandad David’s Christmas present fund 🙂 both are highly excited to get on with the building process so maybe they will get a chance to start them today befor we head out to the Santa Express in Oxenhope.
Finally, the Star Wars experience at LEGOLAND was the last thing that Daddy and Elly walked through before we departed for home – it was REALLY good – shame that the camera ran out of battery power before we finished though 🙁
We should definitely go back to LEGOLAND in the summer time and stay over in the hotel again – it was a wonderful experience that I am usr we would love to repeat.
