We set out on our Florida road trip the day after Halloween. Brian and I didn't put a ton of pressure on ourselves to be out of the house super early, and we were on the road by 8:30. I spent the weeks leading up to the trip sorting out our clothes and making lists. We loaded up Mimi and Baba's Expedition the night before and made a last minute decision to take our Expy instead of the van. We're crazy like that, ha!
Leaving our court for the ride to Florida! All smiles...for now.
I haven't blogged about Wyatt's school year since the first day of school, but I can say that it is going amazingly well. His teacher this year motivates him and gets him excited about learning. I am beyond thankful for the year that he is having. Even though we were going on vacation and his absence was "unexcused," his teacher gave us the math work for the 6 days he was going to miss, and he did all of it on the drive down. Without me asking. It was a Disney Miracle (and motivated by how much he really likes his teacher).
We woke up early the next morning and drove to Legoland. Basically, all Brian's dreams came true. When Reese was a baby, this park was being leased by his former company (under a different name) and he spent a few weeks running it. It was fun to hear his perspective on the changes that have happened in the last 7 years!
Everything was made out of Lego bricks. Everything!
We went on a quest to find all of the Lego Friends girls. Reese is obsessed with the show, and her little sister has certainly picked up on the trend. We found each girl individually in Heartlake City, and then stumbled on them all together when we left a ride.
