Back in September we visited a church in Florida. They are an amazing bunch of people who partner with our work in South Asia. They’re also crazy generous. After spending the weekend being spoiled and doted on, they slipped an envelope our way before we parted. In said envelope were 6 tickets to Legoland with some padding for dinner and a hotel room.
Like I said. Crazy generous.
We had been wanting to go to Legoland for about a year. But after looking at ticket prices we were all “Jk Jk”. This was an ENORMOUS blessing. It was, literally, the best day ever.
It was September so the weather was perfect and there was nary a line to be seen. We practically had the place to ourselves.
The Lego creations are awesome, of course. We’re huge Lego people. When we moved to Canada with only what could fit in our car, a box of Legos still made the cut.
So yeah, we were pretty stoked.
It’s definitely worth the visit, in my opinion.
I didn’t get any pictures of it, but the ski show they do with Brickbeard the pirate is amazing. Seriously. Do not miss it.
And the Miniland USA part of the park is super neat. We favored the Lego Star Wars section, obvs. I wish we had had more time to explore Miniland because it’s quite an elaborate exhibit. But we had other things on our mind. Like roller coasters.
None of our kids had ever been on a real roller coaster, and by some miracle they were all tall enough to ride the coasters at Legoland.
And thanks to our generous church friends, we were able to purchase the photo kit that gives you access to every picture taken of you on every ride all day.
In case you can’t tell, our fourteen year old has the most anxiety about heights and/or going fast. But that didn’t stop her from having fun.
The six year old was skeptical for the first rides but soon figured out that roller coasters are the best thing ever.
Legoland day definitely made our Top Ten List for most awesome days. Probably even Top Five.
The generosity of others and the way God provides things for us above and beyond our needs continues to keep us in awe of his kindness. We would never ever have been able to go to Legoland without being blessed by others.
