WELCOME to SaN dIeGo!
WARNING: A very long post with oodles of pictures!
Our journey began on Wednesday with delayed flights causing us to grab something quick to eat by the airport. Lyndon really wanted Hunan's and I thought it was located by El Chico, but it turned out to be another restaurant....live and learn. :-) It definitely wasn't the Pappadauex's we had intended at DFW. We made it to DFW with only enough time to get to our next flight. We arrived in San Diego quiet late and went straight to bed. Thursday morning Cody decided to walk around the bay while I stayed with Lyndon in the room-he was still sound asleep! I wanted him rested for our busy day, so I let him sleep-it was about 2 Texas time before he fell asleep. Cody sent me pictures of dolphins in the bay, but I wanted Lyndon to rest. After breakfast we walked around the bay and looked for dolphins....guess the early bird always will catch the worm! Of course we also looked at all of the sail boats before picking up our Rent-a-Car. Lyndon was very excited about this new adventure for him.
The trip from San Diego to Carlsbad was gorgeous!!!!! We drove on the coastal highway which took us through a national park and numerous beach communities. Cody loved the WEATHER, Lyndon loved the ocean, & I loved the casual & eclectic feel of each little village!!!!
After checking-in to our resort they shuttled us to Legoland......in a BMW (2012 sport edition)which Lyndon loved!!
I couldn't believe Lyndon did the rock climbing-he made it all the way to the top, but did say it was scary! (I hope this video works-I've never been able to get them to upload in the past.)
The helicopter was really spinning it's prop as well as vehicles drove down the roads, boats maneuvered in the water, people moved, and all types of other actions could be made by pressing designated buttons.
I LOVE Legos because I think they are a fabulous toy and they are great for children's development and thinking skills. Lyndon currently wants to be an engineer, and often says he would like to be a Lego Designer-I could see him doing that! :-)
We had a GREAT day and decided after swimming to order pizza from a local italian restaurant as we sat on our balocony.
