San Diego and Legoland (before Oregon)

Do before our big trip to Oregon a few of our friends were headed to San Diego for camping, beach time, and legoland. We just thought that sounded like a good way to get out of Tucson and have a fun little vacation. On the way, we stayed a night a the hilton in Yuma (where, of course, it is not high season) with our friends. It was right next to the river and although very hot, it was a lot of fun.

The next morning we were off to San Diego. We stopped along the way at a great fish taco place in Oceanside where they had this cool car inside.

Our campground turned out to be ... Slightly less than ideal. Campsites were tightly packed in on a little strip in between the ocean (we did have a nice view, but no beach) and the train tracks and I-5. Noisy! But we still have a good time with the two other families and their kids.

We had a great day at Legoland. It's the perfect amusement park for kids this age. Noah was tall enough for even the biggest roller coaster, which he was super happy about. I don't know where this usually cautious child gets his love for roller coasters! They was some pretty big ones too. Big enough not to have a camera while riding them for sure. Below is Noah on the fairy tale ride.

And a selfie of Wes and I on the lego boats.

Noah at Lego New York City. Pretty amazing how much detail. They also had all the planets from Star Wars in Lego.

Wes' favorite part may have been the giant tree house playground with the giant foam legos in the back.
