We slept in a bit, had breakfast, and spent the rest of the morning cleaning up and loading the van. We got to the Grapevine Mills Mall just a few minutes before our entrance time. I have to say, in my opinion it was WAY overpriced. I know I have a larger than average family, but for us to go it was just over $140 with the discounted tickets. Personally, I think they should just charge for the children and not the adults that are accompanying them like other similar places do. My 6, 7, and 9 year olds enjoyed it though.
When you enter they do a little introduction that talks about how LEGOS are made and everyone gets a free LEGO brick.
Inside there was a play place that Lily, Anthony, and Christian were the right size for.
There were 3 "rides", Merlin's Apprentice, Kingdom Quest, and one that you could drive LEGO police cars.
The city of Dallas made out of LEGOS.
A Ninjago area.
A theater (only Chelsea went in there), and a place where you could build and race your LEGO cars. There was also a cafe and a store.
After 2 hours we were ready to leave. We grabbed some lunch at Applebees which was right outside the mall. Stopped in 3 stores, including the Disney Store where Chelsea bought something for each of the children. Then we headed to Build A Bear Workshop.
Lily and Emmie both picked the same thing, a My Little Pony named Princess Luna.
Lily picked a skirt, shirt, and pink shoes for her pony. Emmie picked a cinderella dress and shoes for hers and they both got hair brushes. They both got hair brushes. Chelsea made a puppy. Emmie named her pony Sparkles and Lily stuck with Princess Luna.
We grabbed a snack from the Original Cookie Company and started the drive home. Within minutes Lily and Emmie had fallen asleep.
We had a great time but it is always nice to be home. It seems our timing to arrive home was good because the next morning Christian was sick (and still is), that evening Anthony got sick, the next morning Art started not feeling well, and Emmie started running a fever too! We are laying low this week-end and praying everyone is better soon!
