This has been my only post this week, hasn't it?
Well, whoops.
Sometimes I find myself getting carried away thinking about the problems of the world that I feel so uninspired to write. You know?
More on that later.

Continuing our photo tour of LEGOLAND. Day Two of LEGOLAND was warm. We started off the day by heading to the one ride (Sky CruiserS) Caderyn really wanted to go on the previous day, but every time we went it was over an hour to wait. So, no.
We got there when the park opened and booked it over to that ride. Lots of other people had the same idea because it still ended up being an hour wait for a ride that...really wasn't that great. Eh. But the one nice thing about that wait was they had designated Lego play areas throughout the park for the kids and there was one attached to the line space I was in. So Caderyn played the entire time while I waited. Should have been the other way around :)
After the ride we hopped over to Lego City and found my parents involved in a fire truck race with Gibby.  
You can't see him, but he's driving.

We hit up as many rides as we could but found the lines were a little longer than the day before. Caderyn and my dad waited 45 minutes for the Aquazone ride. Caderyn was a champ.

And then something amazing happened. Right around 2:00 p.m. it was like the crowds parted and suddenly we were able to go on any ride we wanted to with a maximum wait of ten minutes. So Caderyn and I teamed up and probably scooted around that park four or five times to hit every single ride, sometimes twice. Caderyn really found his brave pants and went on some big rollercoasters.
We had a blast.  
Waiting in line for his first BIG roller coaster ride. He was pretty nervous, but once the ride was over we went on that ride again and again and again.

Not as many pictures this go around because we were really focused on riding the rides.
It was a great trip.
More pictures to come once I get them uploaded from the camera :)
Happy Friday!

While staying in Missoula before our big move to Phoenix, I would try and take the boys outside every night to play at the park next to my aunt and uncle's house.
Caderyn would bring along the basketball he got from his camp and we would run like crazy all over the court playing different games.
Gibby got into it too.

Okay folks, here we go. This here and the next few posts I do are going to be some EPIC photo dumps. Last week, we went to LEGOLAND. It was magical. Not really.
It was a lot of fun though and the kids had a fantastic time. There was so much to do. Caderyn was able to go on all of the rides and even Gibby was entertained all day by the different rides and shows. He loved those shows.
Of course, there were days leading up our departure where I snapped some photos. So here are those.
Look at him. He's just such a little squish-cake.
Random photo texting to Bryanna. The one she sent me back was equally boo-tiful. I'm pretty sure I'd texted her a really bad pun and then sent her this to make sure she got it.
Night vision corgi.
And this ladies and gentlemen is what I call a "camper." A camper, and I shall give you the definition I created many years ago, if someone who goes to the gym but doesn't work out. They sit their butt on a machine and hog the crap out of it. This guy sat on a machine that I wanted to use for over 20 minutes with his stupid feet in the air and played on his stupid phone. He worked out maybe...twice in the span of 10 minutes while I had finished three 20 rep sets on two machines. I about exploded. The same thing happened today with a gal this time. I swear, the next time this happens I'm going to say something. One of my BIGGEST pet peeves is inconsiderate gym users.
I went to The Good Egg the day we left and wrote for three hours. I ordered the chocolate banana pancakes and they came with caramelized bananas. It was super filling and pretty delicious.
We left for LEGOLAND Wednesday night after my Dad finished work. We stayed in Carlsbad at Carlsbad by the sea which was maybe a total of 8 minutes from LEGOLAND.  
The kids were really good in the car. We got in late, but they were troopers. 

Gibby's first ride ever went way better than I thought it would. He loved every second of rides (which is great because I thought he would freak).
The lines were...a little long. On this ride my Dad started to blend into the hieroglyphics.

All Caderyn wanted to do was get his driver's license. His dream came true in this next photo sequence.
And then we came home and crashed into our pjs and didn't move until the next morning.
