Legoland

Our first weekend together so Papa had to make up for all the time he spent away from girls and spent it on a High ! Took the girls to Legoland - and amazingly - every single exhibit is made from Lego blocks - some equipped with sounds and water fountains to boot ! From Bob the builder to Dar Vadar (erm correct spelling - Star Wars fans ?? But queue too long didn't manage pix :() to Fairy Tale characters like Hansel and Gretel, Snow WhiTe and fearless Knights


A specially taken shot of dino (for the boys out there and of cos' Ash.) This was the first exhibit right at the entrance and C had commanded that i take a pix of it :). Really these two - he's never far from her mind, and everything she does, she would say "ash, sure likes this !" or in her usual teasing tone "heh heh, ash can't see this :P ". But ya, she misses her best friend so ...

Finally, a family pic - courtesy of one of the staff there. The standards of service at these theme parks are really excellent beyond compare - but i guess, it's already all inputed in the price of the ticket !

There was so much to do, we hardly finished seeing them all. And the queues of cos were forever. Each ride took approx 45mins to get to - so lots of waiting and snacking in between.

And here's the highlight - VOLVO driving school !
So cool ! The girls were thrilled and after the passed through, they were actually given a drivers' license with their very own name and photo on it ! Here's C on her test drive ...


They refused to take their license off the rest of the trip, and wore their license everywhere ! Yup, that's it around their necks - in this next shot of miniUSA. This was a replica one of the casino precincts in Las Vegas (MGM i believe) ...

On to the other rides - Here's them on the "Beetle Bounce" - totally tickled and enjoying themselves.

They actually re-queued this ride 3 times, after which, R - being the 7 year old she is - had to declare - "hai.. it's so boring mommy" after the 3rd ride ... with arms akimbo - but nevertheless, that grin still on her face !
A whirring rescue copter - the fake one for us ... the real pilot was hiding under a tree somewhere taking this shot :P


And this one which C made me quere an hour for ! She went on this horse around the moat of a castle all on her own, with little monkeys (made of Lego blocks) and knights popping out here and there for interest along the way...


I still for the life of me don't understand why.. but Papa decided to splurge to have caricatures done of the girls !!! check this out....

In progress - C nods off, and nearly falls off her chair .... R just being R.... shifts and sulks on her seat ....)

At last -- TA -DA !!!
LURVE how he did R's "bo-geh" (missing front teeth!) !! umm which do you think looks more like them ???

Haha .. sorry about this pix laden post ! So here's leaving you a last one of C in front of a sea of flowers which we passed by and stopped to pose :) (R was... erm... tired... ;P ) Now how in the world am i going to get them to settle from such a HIGH for school this coming week ????!!!! umm... maybe another week off ??? think the teacher's getting cold-feet too :P !!!
