Tau and I spent a fantastic day at Legoland last week, a day marked by a number of firsts:
- First visit to Legoland, which he has been asking about for years now.
- Tau’s first-ever roller-coaster ride, on the Coastersaurus (and a very patient 45 min. wait in line for it, I might add).
- First sighting of real, live stormtroopers, weapons and all. Mom, it’s just a person dressed in a costume. Well, if that’s true, how come you refuse to stand next to one to let me get a picture, huh?
So there were stormstroopers (or are they snowtroopers or clonetroopers?) and Jedi knights, and droids of every conceivable shape and size, and a large Lego Darth Vader that small kids were gingerly circling and refusing to stand beside.
There was also a display of Star Wars models from local San Diego Lego aficionados, which Tau loved — some very advanced models on display, along with a model of Stitch (as in Lilo and Stitch) dressed up as Master Yoda, and Tau’s much-beloved AT-AT Walkers.
