San Diego Day 2: Legoland
We decided to visit Legoland today.  It was a first for all of us.  We were only about a half hour away.  The wait to get into the parking lot was long, but the park was not very busy.  We arrived at the park at 10am when it opened and left the park at 8pm when it closed.  Caitlin did great!  She had fun riding the rides and seeing everything made out of legos.  The rides are perfect for little ones.  The park was bigger than we imagined, but we were able to ride 17 rides in just 10 hours.   
While waiting for the rides, there are play areas with legos for the kids.  Caitlin liked building towers.

During lunch Caitlin had fun making friends and playing around the post

Mommy and Caitlin ready to ride!  The more we pedal the faster the ride goes. (This was the longest we had to wait for a ride)

Family photo attempt on the Fairytale ride, but Caitlin was too distracted.

The Three Little Pigs all made out of legos

One of the lands in Legoland is titled, Miniland U.S.A.  It is different replicas of cities made completed out of legos.
Las Vegas, lego style

The Capitol with the Washington Monument in the background.  The little band in the front marched and played music.  Again, all of this is out of legos!

Caitlin loved Miniland U.S.A.

Little Aviator Caitlin!  Daddy had to beat the other kids so Caitlin could ride the wooden plane!

Caitlin and Daddy kept their hands up the whole time.  If you look closely you can see the girl next to Caitlin staring at Daddy.

The last ride of the evening was the train ride where Caitlin was the engineer and drove the train.

Caitlin fell asleep almost before we left the parking lot.  When we got home we went to put her in her jammies and she woke up enough to take a quick bath!  What a great day we had!  Caitlin went to sleep right away to rest up for Sea World tomorrow with Gracie and Nolan!
