Birthday Girl fun




So for my birthday, we spent the day at Legoland. We haven't been there since 4th of July last year, and we got our passes renewed and that is what I wanted to do for my birthday.

I just love Legoland, because the park is small enough and not stressful or overly crowded like the Mickey Mouse place, but yet there is plenty to do. Especially now that they added the Pirate Shores section last year, it makes for a lot of wet fun for the kids.

I wore a "Birthday Girl" tiara (see above) that I found in some of my event stuff I am sorting through, and hubby just shook his head and said "You sure do like the bling, don't you?" I corrected him and said "Bling to me is over the top, like to show off. Like what rappers do. I prefer to call it sparkle. So yes, I sure do like the sparkle."

It was a hoot wearing it, and so many passer-bys said Happy Birthday! to me and one of the Legoland workers gave me a Happy Birthday button. I highly recommend it for any gal who enjoys a lil' bit of sparkle.

When the park closed, we had dinner at a near-by Applebees. The servers sang that silly birthday song and I got a free sundae. Hubby said I should wear the tiara every time we go out. He said, "Heck, I'll even wear it if it gets me free dessert."

******A heartfelt thank you to everyone who left a birthday wish comment on my birthday post below. I really appreciated the kind words and loved the warm fuzzies ya'll gave me! Thanks again, you know how to make a fellow blogger gal feel lahved....


34 shots just to get at least ONE decent pic of all three! No kidding, 34!

I'm glad you were confident enough to wear the tiara! I had sparkly barrettes in all weekend and got lots of compliments. Some people said I looked young even. At Christmas I wear a tinsel headband with red jingle bells :)
We've never been close to one of those Lego parks...that would be so much fun! Do you have a Playmobil park too?
