For one weekend, we met some friends at Legoland, Carlsbad, Ca., ” a 128-acre park geared specifically towards youngsters ages 2 – 12. With over 60 family rides, “hands-on” attractions and shows, LEGOLAND California provides education, adventure and fun in this first park of its kind in the United States,” (

This is my first time going to Legoland, and coming from sunny Los Angeles, I did not expect the weather to be significantly colder, especially since Carlsbad is located south of LA.

(We had stayed at a hotel inside Downtown Disney with similar decor.)

Legoland was definitely a fun experience, even better when shared with friends.
