We started off our Saturday morning with Reecey’s karate test. This rank test involved all his memory work, which is saying and spelling karate terms in Japanese, to get his final tip. He did so awesome, and he was so excited when he found out he passed!
Sarah Ann and Carson then went to Addison’s birthday party while Jeffrey and Reece packed, and then we hit the road to Atlanta! Carson was out before we hit the interstate and slept a good part of the way down, but Reece and Sarah Ann were just so excited and giddy about our little weekend getaway! We had a great trip down and went straight to Phipps Plaza to meet Aunt Melanie, Uncle Jeremy, Nanny and Pops!
We ate an early dinner first, and of course Reecey’s picked Moe’s! He wanted everyone to eat as quickly as possible because he was ready to see those Legos!
And Legoland definitely did not disappoint! The kids had the best time!
We started off in the brick factory, and then went on the Kingdom Quest Laser Ride where we had to save the princess! Next up was Miniland, and the kids thought it was so neat that they got to see so many of the places that we have been to in Atlanta in Lego form! Reece also liked finding some of his Lego sets in the midst of the city. He was just so happy! There is also a special Star Wars exhibit right now. After seeing those two areas we headed into the big open area, where we spent the next two hours playing with Legos, riding the Merlin’s Adventure ride, building and racing cars, singing karaoke, playing in the Fire Engine playground, seeing two different 4D movies and getting a couple new Lego sets! I’m pretty sure the kids would have stayed longer if it wasn’t time to close! It was such a fun evening, and they are already asking when we can go back!
We got back to Melanie and Jeremy’s pretty late, but we still found some time to celebrate Reece’s birthday one more time with cupcakes and more Legos from Uncle Jeremy and Aunt Melanie!
After a good nights sleep and a morning of playing with their new Lego people, we packed up all our stuff and headed to meet our friends, Kevin, Brandi, Lynsie and Kyle for lunch before coming back to SC! It was so great to see them and catch up, and the kids had so much fun playing with Lynsie and Kyle! And we can’t wait to hopefully see them again this summer!
Our trips to Atlanta always go by so quickly, but they are always so much fun too! We can’t wait to go back again this summer! Thank you, Uncle Jeremy and Aunt Melanie, for letting us sleep in Annalee’s room!
