I love this (instagram) picture. I sent it to a few relatives, and my father in law said it looks straight out of the fifties. Maybe that's why it's so endearing. Who was it who said, 'Nostalgia is the opium of the age'?
I've had a great dread of theme parks since becoming a parent. Somehow, we've managed nine and a half years of parenthood without one mention of Disneyland, maybe or maybe not due to the lack of media exposure in our household. We have had repeated requests to visit Legoland, however.
We decided to bite the bullet and go over the midwinter school break last week.
The park has a nice balance of rides, activities, and things to look at. It was surprisingly uncrowded, perhaps because we went on two weekdays, perhaps because it was their low season.
Not surprisingly, we spent the most time studying the Star Wars displays.
The apple fries with vanilla creme fraiche dipping sauce were amazing. Just like apple pie.
I loved the many depictions of places. Here is just a small sample of what there was to see.
Tomorrow, photos of our time in the desert. xo
