Waaaaaaay back in September I had a birthday. We thought that was a pretty reasonable excuse to take the kids to Legoland, so we did! I’m not gonna lie, I’m a little bit (or a lot) encouraging of the kids’ Lego obsession. Yes, they’re sort of stupidly expensive, but they are SUCH great toys. There are some sets I want for myself. (Actually, on a related note, I finally got ahold of this set:

Which theoretically is a Christmas gift for the kids, but mostly because *I* want it. (This is selling on Amazon for SIXTY SEVEN DOLLARS. I hate people who do that crap. I did NOT pay that.))
(On another related note, if you’re a Lego fan, the documentary Inside Lego on Netflix is worth watching)
ANYWAY. We went to Legoland! Here in KC it’s not a full-blown park, just what they call a “discovery center” but we had a lot of fun.
One of the unexpected joys of moving to Kansas for Kalena has been all the Wizard of Oz stuff. She LOVES that movie. Obviously Legoland had Wizard of Oz stuff.
Including all of Oz. That’s munchkin land on the left and the Emerald City on the right. I couldn’t get Dorothy’s house (which goes up and spins around when you press a button) or the Wicked Witch’s fortress in the shot.
Also, an excellent Star Wars exhibit.
And of course everyone had fun playing with the Legos.
So woo! Happy birthday to me.
