We’ve been making the most of the last few days of being able to go to Legoland in term-time this week with a couple of days out there. For the last two years, we’ve well and truly got our money’s worth out of the preschool passes – but with the arrival of the summer season, our term-time days out have come to an end. We’ve made so many memories at Legoland over the last couple of years and it has always been our happy place. I’m not looking forward to being restricted to weekends and holidays from now on, but I’m sure the girls will still enjoy it just as much!
One of the highlights of our days out at Legoland is always going to see the Lego Friends show and no trip is complete without making sure we get a photo with the “Best Friends Forever fairies” as the girls call them. I love the fact that the Lego Friends girls always recognise and remember my girls and the way my girls’ faces always light up when they see them.
We’ve spent our last couple of Legoland days exploring parts of the park that we don’t often visit – walking down the hill through the Land of the Vikings rather than taking the Hill Train, trying not to get lost in Loki’s Labyrinth, watching the 20th anniversary show, and visiting the 4D cinema for the first time. Jessica even managed to brave a ride on Fairytale Brook – not usually considered to be a scary ride, but she’s frightened of the genie in the tunnel so I was quite proud of her for being willing to go on it because Sophie wanted to.
Things I have loved this week
- Jessica performing along to “My Favourite Things” with her Girls’ Brigade friends in the Company Display.
- Continuing hubby’s tradition of going to Pizza Hut for dinner after the display.
- Going out for a yummy meal at Bella Italia.
- Finally getting on top of the paperwork mountain and getting it all organised and filed away.
- Hearing how much Jessica enjoyed the “beach days” at preschool.
- Early morning snuggles with my girls.
- Listening to Sophie singing “There was an old lady who swallowed a fly” and then tickling me when it comes to the line about the “spider than wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her.”
