Easter Baskets!

Jack is a little stunned that the rabbit has left him a Qui-Gon Jinn (along with a Darth Maul).   Elle scored with a Disney princess scooter!

Happy Easter!

Here's one we'd like Aunt Jasper to learn and perform.

Are There Coasters at Legoland?

This is their "big daddy" and it isn't one that I'd want to get on.  Jack and Mom did twice.  This is the second time and you can see the fear in poor Jack's face on the big drop.  Afterwards he declared "No more" The dude behind them was having a good time.

More from Legoland!

Here are a copule of my favorite snaps from the lego trip!   We went to the beach the afternoon we arrived and walked arround looking for shells and getting wet (at least the boys did).  Elle was generally kind of scared of the beach though a few days later she wanted to go back.   As an aside, it was the same way on the elevator at the hotel... the first few rides terrorized her and Mom had to hold her.   Then she began standing and declaring "This is fun".

Not bad for a non-kid shot!

Jack doing his lifeguard impression...with no shoes but long pants and a coat!

While the weather wasn't perfect..think cold (for Southern California with some rain) it kept the people away. We got to ride whatever we wanted with zero lines. In one instance Jack went around aroller coaster 6 times in a row! Here Jack is super excited before we go in...and then planning our route.

Just after lunch Elle and I had a great little mini-session above mini-land. She was rejuvinated and in great spirits.

An encounter with Darth Maul (made from legos) had Jack and Elle on the run!

Comet Pann-STARRS!

Maybe we'll go take a look tonight.  We can get to some good Western views rather easily though we'll be staring into the lights of Sacramento...

Ice Skating = Exhausting

Steph comes to terms with the fact that Jack is a California boy and didn't inherit her ice skating prowess earning from growing on on the Eastern shore of Lake Michigan.
