Legoland 2009 Pics

We had such a great time! It was nice to do something with Ethan all by himself. What a special birthday treat! I really enjoy getting to spend one on one time with each of the kids. Ethan was so happy. You can tell from the pics that he was totally elated to be the center of attention, for once! We always try to make special time for him, since middle children can often feel "squeezed out". It's double duty difficult with Ethan, since he has the least needs out of the three of them. I am so glad we were able to go.

Ethan's favorite ride was the "driving ride" where he got to go all by himself like a big boy! He was cruising in his mini Lego convertible Volvo. Sweet ride!! You know, chicks dig Volvos :) His least fav was the roller coaster. I took him on the Dinocoaster against his will, thinking he would enjoy it once he got over that initial fear (Javi was always like that at that age) but, nope!! He is not a thrill ride kinda guy, just like Mark. It was actually a very mild roller coaster, geared for little kids, but he still didn't like it. My favorite part of the day was the boat cruise. Our first ride. It was so cute to see the excitement in his face. I also loved the Inaugural LegObama Exhibit in Miniland. Complete with moving parade! It was amazing!

Thank you to Jamie and Mark for helping out with the other two kids so I could get out with Ethan. Also, thank you to my friend, Ryan for getting the tickets for us off the base. Gotta love those military discounts!!
