Max was definitely excited to go. So on Saturday morning we got going early and met papa and aunt Joanne at papa's club down the hill from us for breakfast, then shoved off for the short 10 minute ride north to the flower fields of Carlsbad and Legoland. We finally got through the entrance around 11:30 and began our day.
Just like NYC but, sadly, without the surly cabbies.
Max with the only live character he'd take a picture with that day.
A boy, his Wookie and the Wookie's crossbow are not easily separated.
Nic. Confused. Because he sees NASCAR in front of him, but wonders where his can of Old Milwaukee is...
And the best part of the weekend was that we let the kids watch 'The Empire Strikes Back' for the first time ever on Sunday so they finally understood the phrase that bears this blog's title.
Like a true boy, Nic reaching out to the bad guy Darth Vader (out of the frame but what he's reaching for) and ignoring the cute robot. But not Hannah, she avoids the bad guys (phew!).
