LEGOLAND Day Trip

I love finding new places to take the kids that are within driving distance, and especially now that I'm home for a few more months, LEGOLAND Discovery Center in Westchester is in our rotation of fun, close-to-home activities.

I went into it expecting lots of Lego play, but we were surprised to see the center also included fun rides, exhibits, and 4D cinema in addition to many opportunities to play with Legos.  We spent a few hours there and didn't even put the kids in the huge Fire Academy- themed jungle gym play area.  (JD continues to remind us that next time we "NEED to bring socks". Don't tell him we could have purchased them there!)

This ride was by far our favorite!

The NYC exhibit is amazing.

They enjoyed waiting for the subway to go by way too much. I finally had to tell them to move along.

At this table, they practiced building earthquake-resistant buildings.

The Ridge Hill Mall, where LEGOLAND is located, is gorgeous and full of fun places to eat and shop.  You can easily make a full day out of your visit!  The organic, free-range, grass-fed beef burgers and milkshakes we had at Elevation Burger were a nice surprise, and there was plenty of room inside for the boys to begin building their LEGO masterpieces.

They are wishing for us to take them back again soon! With events like "Brick or Treat" coming up in October, I'm sure it won't be long.

Disclosure: LEGOLAND provided our family with passes for the day.  All opinions are my own, and we will be returning often on my own dime :)

And after 3 weeks of survival mode, we are back in the swing of things.  I have a full drafts folder, so I'm hoping to post a bit more frequently this fall.  But for now, I'm back to baby duty, so enjoy a video of Keith sharing the news!
