Legoland Trip

Saturday was my and Robert's trip to Legoland. Thankfully, we had a glorious day, in weather and fun!!! My outfit choice for the day was a mix of new purchases-my purple Uniqlo cardigan and this really unusual skull print t shirt dress that was in the Salvation Army last week for only £1.75!! I paired this with my Uniqlo leggings and comfy gold espadrilles!!

We got there about 11am and it was sunny and very busy indeed!! Be prepared for lots of pictures, which show off the wonderful land of Lego, which is in the heart of Windsor, Berkshire.


Lokis Labyrinth, Land of the Vikings


Spining Spider, Land of the Vikings-wow, was I dizzy when I got off this!!
This was a 30 minutes wait to get on to!


Lego Creation Centre





At Traffic-Robert took his driving test and got his lego drivers licence here!!






Here at Adventure land, it took 90 minutes to eventually get on Wave Surfer, whch lasted a whole 4 minutes-yaaay!!


Robert with his drivers licence, queueing to get on Wave Surfer!!

Explorers Institute






Robert in X Box 360 gaming Zone


Here at Lego City we watched a show called Johnny Thunder!!

This photo is from google.com-The iphone ran out of battery, but I just had to show you how excellent this part of MiniLand was-London was totally recreated, from Canary Wharf upto Buckingham Palace!!!

We had a fantastic time-Robert brought home some Indiana Jones Lego, which he has built already! Legoland is a really fun place to go for adults and children alike!

Hi kate-I've heard the Celia B/Millets collaberation was a good one-at least you slept in style!!

Hi sunniva-thanks so much for your lovely comment!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi ellie-what a lovely comment- you're such a sweetie, thanks a lot!! haha, I'm relaxing today!!

WendyB said...

Amazing what they do there! The Wall Street Journal had a story years ago about a guy who was amazingly talented with Legos and was trying to get hired by Legoland. I swear, he might have been a lawyer or something, but he needed to follow his bliss!

cupcakes and cashmere said...

what a fun day! even though i'm a bit older than robert, i think i would LOVE legoland! also, that skull print is amazing on you.

Sharon Rose said...

Hi wendy-maybe they did hire him, there is some awesome creations here, not only was London built, but other european cities too!!

Hi cupcakes and cashmere-Yes, I'm certain you would have loved it, the queueing was a pain, but to be expected! Thanks for your comment on my t shirt dress, I really love the unusual cut and print of it!

elle said...

that looks so much fun!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi elle-we had a great time, thanks!!

Charlotte said...

Great outfit and must have been a wonderful day. Do you know, sometimes it's hard to live in Germany, but not in GB...thrifting seems to be so cheap there. In Munich "thrift shopping" is a new trend and so everything is very expensive...

blue hearts said...

Thanks so much for checking out my story blog. I greatly appreciate it. Love the fun you guys had. Wish I was there. His face at the 360 gaming thing..priceless.

Sharon Rose said...

Hi charlotte-thanks so much for your lovely comment. I am lucky that where I live, I have access to a lot of charity shops, they seem the norm over here in the UK. I hope they gain popularity in Germany, more so with the prices too!

Hi blue hearts-thanks for your lovely comment and I'll try to check you out from time to time too!!

p said...

How fun!

I love Lego-- I still play with my extremely ol'-skool lego, building homes and the like. I always thought my childhood was an androgynous mix-- lego and barbies, guns and dress up, role-play camping and role-play beauty salon.

Your son's really adorable, and that dress is fantastic!

Winnie said...

Oh this brings back so many childhood memories, I used to love lego land! They have the gold mine activity there and I remember coming back with a 'gold medal' and being really pleased that I had my lego land driving licence! Love the outfit, that charity shop dress is great!!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi p-thanks for your lovely comment, haha Robert is lego mad at the moment too!

Hi Winnie-yes, the gold mining is still there, although we didn't do it! Thanks so much for your lovely comment!!

Charlotte said...

Darling, thank you so much...I'm feeling so much better now!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi charlotte-you're soo welcome, pleased you feel better :-))

Legoland looks amazing! The purple looks great on you -- I'm regretting not buying a couple more of those sweaters while at Uniqlo.

Imelda Matt said...

This is way cooler than any lego exhibition that I was dragged to see as a kid.

Imelda Matt said...

oh and I was going to say that my day job has kept me from writing my beloved and over-the-top 'Shoe of the Week' posts.

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Imelda-yes, Legoland has definitely got better over the years!!
Boohoo to the day job-I love your posts, nothing must get in the way of these!!

thetinylittlegirl said...

Sharon Rose said...

Hi thetinylittlegirl-It was great fun thanks-I'm sure you'd all really enjoy it!!

Ida said...

Wow, this looks so fantastic. I had never heard of it, weird. It does seem that one has to visit it on a weekday, no? 90 minutes?! Crazy:) But your son looks so happy, lovely!

Have a wonderful day, dearest Sharon!
