Andrew went on his first field trip today and I got to go with him. It was a great chance for us to spend some time together--he has missed that since Daniel has been home. After dropping Daniel off at daycare, we ate a quick breakfast (and a very large coffee) at Panera. Then we went to meet the bus that would take us to Legoland. I think Andrew would have been perfectly happy just riding the big, yellow school bus all day--he has wanted to ride one for over a year.
We were greeted by this guy:
this guy: (Captain Kangaroo, right?)
and this guy. Andrew jumped right up onto the bench and said, "This is my daddy. I love him."
We saw two 4-d movies. The first one was about lego guys who are looking for a package and the second one was about Bob the Builder designing a roller coaster. They were only 9 minutes long--my kind of movie.
Then we went on a dragon train ride:
and saw this guy:
After the ride, Andrew posed with a few friends:
Next, we walked through the jungle room.
There was a large room filled with the Chicago skyline made completely out of legos. I was amazed and took about 50 pictures but Andrew was only interested in playing with the crane and pushing the button that made the little lego guy rip a whole in the street with a jackhammer.
