Legoland 6x8 Mini Travel Album | part ii | Kingdoms, Adventure, City, and Technic

Part i - Legoland Hotel
Part ii - Legoland Kingdoms, Adventure, City, and Technic

THE BEGINNING

We didn't spend much time in The Beginning.  We just grabbed our map and attacked our game plan.  I'm looking for some tabs to adhere to the map to add it to the binder, but haven't found any yet.

 I thought it would be fun to create a bullet list of Lego studs.  They give fun dimension.

KINGDOMS

 I photocopied the Lego paper I had from my stationary kit I bought in the park to turn it gray.

ADVENTURE

 It's hard to see in this photo, but I added a gold stud to the scorpion sticker to give it dimension.

LEGO CITY

I kept and included the Driver's License that they gave the kids for their driving school.

LEGO TECHNIC

Instead of another Lego brick glued to the page, I added a tire here for fun.  Love the little details.

And on this page I added a small Lego propeller.

We stopped for lunch at Lakeside Sandwich Co. in the Technic area.  It is a healthy lunch option, and the only place in the park that serves a kids meal in these fun Lego boxes that they got to bring home.

Legoland 6x8 Mini Travel Album | part i | Legoland Hotel


I am currently working on our Spring Break 2016 pictures from Florida, and have decided to make a separate mini album for my Legoland pictures.

I'm using a Simple Stories 6x8 album.  The chipboard stickers are from Hobby Lobby Paper Studios, and I picked up the Lego stickers from a stationary kit from the Big Shop at Legoland, Florida.  They were on clearance in the Chima booth, so I don't know their current availability.

TITLE PAGE


I knew that I wanted a see-through Lego cluster for my opening page.  I picked out a few of my son's extra pieces and sewed them into the pocket.  I saved all of my receipts and packaging from the trip, which is what the tag is at the top (from a keychain purchase I think.)

The background Lego paper is from the stationary set I mentioned above, they were originally blank cards that I just cut down to size.

I'm using Pinkfresh Studio's Life Noted Puffy Yellow Alpha throughout the album as titles.

PART i - LEGOLAND HOTEL

I'm opening the album with the hotel details, since we spent the night there before we actually went into the park, so it keeps the photos chronological.


The hotel journaling card is from Sahlin Studio's Project Mouse We're Here collection.  The welcome card is from our check-in packet.


Here's a close up of the back of the see-through Lego pocket.  The star on top is also from Lego Friends extra pieces.


We stayed in Adventure themed room and loved it!  I can't say enough how great this hotel was.  The kids still talk about going back and trying the other themes.  The "our room" journaling card is from Sahlin Studio's Project Mouse We're Here collection.


I saved one of our hotel keys and inserted it into a card is from Sahlin Studio's Project Mouse We're Here collection. I will be adding stickers here and there from the DK Ultimate Lego Minifigure sticker book I got off Amazon.


The room had this fun treasure hunt for the kids.  I was impressed by how much loot they actually got!  Free Legos?! Heck ya!!  I included their little treasure hunt card from the room.


I thought that these yellow Lego studs resembled treasure, so I used them as a bullet list to journal what they got.


The back of the treasure hunt card was blank, so I turned it into a pocket using paper from the stationary kit, and stickers from the sticker book.  I then tucked one of the activity packs they got, and tied it together with string (it originally hung on a lanyard around their necks).

The right side documents the fabulous disco elevator.  It played disco music and had dancing lights each time you rode it.  The kids LOVED this part!  Well done, Legoland Hotel!


I kept a napkin from the Bricks Family Restaurant and tucked it into a pocket.  The Lego journaling card came from Pixie Sprite.

My Sweet Boy is 8!

Ethen turned eight today.  How does this happen?  For real?



I took him to the Houston Temple for the first time.  He was really struck by it's beauty.  He wanted to go inside, so we managed to go to the bathroom.  He mentioned how he understood why people wanted to go here because it was so peaceful.

He's not an easy subject to photograph.  He is chatty, wiggly, goofy, and never looks at the camera.  But I did manage to snap a few that I loved.




His new thing is languages.  He wants to learn Korean, Chinese, Spanish, and Russian all at the same time.  We opted on practicing Spanish first.  He LOVES his El Libro De Mormon and reads aloud from it with his dad.





Join us for his baptism on March 25 if you can.

February 2016 Calendar Pages

So the first trimester of my pregnancy has been killing me.   No energy + all day yuckiness = no creativity.  Nothing is getting done.  I'm barely functioning as I see things looming in front of me, growing ever more pressing.  So I'm taking it a day at a time. 

It's funny as I post last year's layout, how I had given up on having another baby a year ago.  It definitely hasn't been the timing I wanted, but who knows what the Lord has planned for us.  We'll take it.

Posting these late, but that's okay, right?

February 2016 Hybrid Layouts

My little Jedi and his BB-8.  I had some brighter, sharper photos that were cute from their little (st)roll around the neighborhood, but I loved the image of the setting sun in this photo, giving it a more authentic Jakku desert planet feel, so I went with it.
