Rainforest Cafe and Legoland Discovery Center

While I wade through the 447 files from the boys party, I thought I'd post on a couple other things.....

Back in January I bought pre-opening tickets to the Legoland Discovery Center that they were opening in Grapevine this year. I chose the day after the boys party because I thought it would be a fun addition to the party weekend, and because I thought they might enjoy it more if they were closer to four instead of three.

My friend Cass bought tickets for herself and her son Lucas, and we all went together deciding to eat at the Rainforest Cafe (in the same mall) beforehand. I bought leftover birthday cupcakes to lunch and the waitstaff sang to the boys while making them stand and beat on their chests like gorillas. It's very dark in the restaurant so it's hard to see much in the video.

We then headed to Legoland and had a great time. The kids could "do" everything they had available there. We saved the princess, rode on a "flying" thing-a-ma-jig, saw a couple 4D movies, and played with tons of Legos. It was pretty busy, but the kids didn't seem to mind one bit. Connor spent a lot of time in the climbing structure building with big Legos, and Alex spent a bunch of time designing and testing Lego cars. We ended up spending six hours in the mall between the two places, and everyone was VERY tired by the end of the day. Here is a small peek at our day:
