L is for Legoland: Featured Post Card for the A to Z Challenge.
My Aunt Sheila sent us this post card when she was visiting Legoland with my young cousins. She had just moved out to Arizona, after growing up in Connecticut and living in Massachusetts for a while (One year, we got to spend Thanksgiving in Plymouth, Massachusetts like the Pilgrims, which was very exciting to a 9 or 10 year old!).
While I’ve never been to Legoland, it sounds like something I would have enjoyed as a kid. My brother and I used to spend hours building things – Lincoln Logs and Legos were some of my favorite toys. I remember trying to build the equivalent of RVs with our Legos – four measly little wheel assemblies with long bodies and tall sides. We didn’t really have many of the thin flat pieces that would allow us to build out and then up, so our ‘houses on wheels’ ended up looking like stadium seating.
I get really confused by all the new-fangled Lego kits for sale now. I don’t think we had any ‘kits’ when we were young – just miscellaneous blocks and accessories. I would be hesitant to even attempt one of the new ones, because I would be worried following the plan would take all the imagination out of it. If I want to assemble something per the directions, I just buy some Ikea furniture!
But Legoland might be something to try when we have kids some day. Located near San Diego, it could easily be added to a trip to Southern California.
I’m participating in the Blogging from A-Z Challenge this year! Over the month of April, I’ll be featuring my post cards for all 26 letters of the alphabet. So get ready to see more of my massive post card collection!
