My dh took off w-f last week, and I had it off as well, so we were able to enjoy a little mini-vacation. Took the boys to LegoLand on Thursday and though we did have fun we will not be going there again.
Why you ask? Why not go to Legoland? 1) The only friendly staff we encountered were in the restaurant where we ate. 2) It costs just as much as Disneyland 3)But it's even further away 4)and it's less than half as small 5) and though the lines are very short they take a VERY long time to get through. 6) and then just when you're starting to have fun and think it may not be as bad as all that after all - - they close. At 5. That's right people!
But all in all we had a good loooooong weekend .
The boys have decided they want a Harry Potter room and since Craig doesn't do anything by halves we dove right into transforming their bedroom (in an apartment, which we cannot paint) into a castle. We will do this by hanging panels of fabric and nailing up painted ply-board on the walls. We're going to be searching craigslist (that's for a mirror, swords (unsharpened), brooms, and trunks. Tried to find a good large cauldron for a toy box but the only really good ones are in the vicinity of $200 and that folks, is just not worth it. So trunk it shall be and that will actually look a lot better. Add bookshelves and a lamp and we may actually have a finished product. (the bearskin rug we're still debating on).
When we will actually finish it..... well, I'll let you know.
