Last week was birthday week in our family-Nathan's birthday Wednesday and Jack's Friday. Celebrations began Monday and lasted through the week. (More on that to come.)

We are sort of sick of Stuff in our house. So, in order to limit the amount of stuff the boys got for their birthdays we decided to try something fun.

The morning of Nathan's birthday, he got to open a present that contained this:
This was to tell him he was getting a season pass to Legoland. It was funny to watch Jack's reaction. He got sad and sulky that Nathan got a pass. Seems like he would have immediately realized that two days later, on his birthday, he would get the same thing. He did catch on pretty quickly.

On Jack's birthday when he opened presents he found Lego letters spelling LegoLand TODAY! Meaning we were going that day. Josh took half a day off work and we headed to LEGOLAND in the afternoon! (Only about 20 minutes or so from our house.)

We are thrilled with Legoland-so uncrowded, so much lower key and less stressful than Disney and so perfect for our boys.

Here are some pictures from our first day in Legoland:


  1. What a great idea! I will have to do this for Jack's birthday...too bad WE don't have a huge attraction 20 minutes from our house. Maybe I can give him a season pass to the Henry Vilas Zoo? ;)

  2. What cute pictures! Looks like fun. :)

  3. I agree about all the "stuff". It's a good thing our boys don't really care that much right now. That is a good idea though and maybe someday we will live close enough to something to do it!

  4. Fun! Great idea to do this instead of more toys and clutter!

  5. I loved these pictures! Now that we've been there, we have some of the same ones, just different faces!
