Star Wars Days at Legoland are our FAVE!

there is no question that we love Star Wars AND Legos over here. with a house full of boys, there’s no getting around it. and when my boys heard that there was a full scale X-Wing Fighter built of Legos coming to Legoland in Carlsbad, they about flipped out. yes…a 1:1 scale, over 5 million piece Lego Set has been built, replicating a Star Wars X-Wing Fighter. You can read a little more about it here.

this weekend, June 15-16, 2013, Legoland is having it’s annual LEGO® Star Wars Days…perfect for Father’s Day. guests can dress up as their favorite Star Wars character, have a meet and greet with Darth Vader, the 501st and Rebel Legion, search for mini Yodas in Miniland and participate in a variety of Star Wars adventures.

Star Wars Miniland is no doubt my boy’s favorite place to be in Legoland. every time we go, we spend a long time enjoying the Star Wars models and miniature lands built of LEGOs. it really is amazing.

my boys spend a lot of their time checking out the different scenes of the favorite Star Wars movies replicated in LEGOs. i love how the LEGO Brickmasters have brought in natural elements to bring each scene to life.

i’m no expert on Star Wars, so i can’t exactly tell you what Episodes these Star Wars scenes are from, but any of my boys could tell you in a heart beat.

going to Legoland to check it out is definitely on our summer to-do list. Legoland is my kids happy place. if you haven’t been…try to get your kiddies their. you won’t be disappointed.

What part of Legoland is your kiddies favorite?

green legos.



so yesterday was my youngest’s birthday, and he got a lot of Legos. my kiddies love Legos. in fact if you saw how many they had, you would think it you were in a toy store. but i don’t keep them at my house, the pieces get everywhere and i step on them all day long. i send them over to their great grandma’s house. she loves them as much as they do (an she love to organize and put them into different containers). so i keep buying them, and sending them over to her house to put them together. (i will have to share a picture of the set-up one day).



did you know that Family Fun magazine has a section on Legos website for monthly building activities. there are 3 new instructions each month to build a little animal, person or holiday item. and i went to check if they had some fun instructions for March lego ideas. they have a cute leprechaun and a St. Patrick’s Day Hat.
