Holiday Snow Days at Legoland

Who says there’s never snow in San Diego? Legoland has all the winter fun: snowballs, sledding, and ice skating during this year’s Holiday Snow Days.

Holiday Snow Days at Legoland - Legoland has snow and skating available as part of their holiday festivities.  Plus, if you visit the park between now and January 4, 2015, you can get a free return ticket.

Last week I surprised the littles by taking them to Legoland. They didn’t know where we were going until we turned onto Legoland Drive, but they had guessed that maybe that was it. But, why did they need to wear long pants and closed shoes?

The park hosted a media day and invited me and three guests. I decided to take these three: my favorite ten and under set.

The older boys were very gracious about not being included; they know that our littles are really the “target audience” at Legoland. The big boys have great memories of going to Legoland when they were this age and were pretty excited to help me make this day a great surprise.
