The family and I just returned from an amazing week-long vacation in beautiful San Diego so I thought I’d share a few (OK, a lot) of pictures. Enjoy:
Loved these guys, and even the cacti behind them enjoyed the music.
The animal sculptures in the Adventurer’s Club were amazing!
This polar bear comes right at you! Look out!
This wolf in Fairy Tale Brook is determined to get some bacon.
Loved him checking his iPhone!
Part of the Las Vegas section of Miniland, probably our favorite part of the park.
A Miniland New Orleans jazz funeral.
Love the stilt walkers in this parade!
The architecture stuff in Miniland is pretty amazing. Even my wife was checking out some of the techniques used.
This is part of the new Star Wars section of Miniland, although it looks like it could be from the movie.
Love the little mini-Luke!
Laugh it up, fuzz-brick.
Aren’t these great?!
Part of the Enchanted Walk we found after gorging on Granny’s apple fries. (OMG!)
Loved the LEGO details on the walls while waiting to get into Pharaoh’s Revenge!
The scenery here was just amazing. I took so many pictures!
Lighthouses are an Anderson family vacation fave.
Not too many pics here (mostly fishtanks inside), but this statue outside was incredible.
We went here on Father’s Day figuring LEGOLand, the Midway and the zoo would be crowded, and we largely had the place to ourselves.
I don’t know what these are, but wow!
Here’s me relaxing. Ahhh….
What a great way to spend the morning!
Museum of Making Music
This place was such a little gem! We adored everything about it. I mean, you start out with a piano desk! PIANO DESK!
The brass player in me was soooo happy.
Did you know Steinway made a special piano during the war? Neat huh?
OMG, I had that exact Fender Rhodes.
For whatever reason, my 8-year-old daughter is really into the banjo, and they actually had a special banjo exhibition going.
San Diego Zoo
And of course we went to the zoo! That’s a red panda being uncooperative.
We went right to the panda section as soon as it opened and spent loads of time there before it got crowded. So nice!
The capybara is one of my daughter’s favorite animals, and the zoo had tons of them!
Loved this sun bear just hanging out.
These were super loud. Every time they made a noise I jumped.
Another little gem. The 90 minute tour was fascinating! We ate a picnic lunch next to the wiffle ball field outside.
Children’s Pool Beach
This was the last thing we saw and it was an amazing way to end the trip. Look at all the seals! Wild seals! Right there!
This guy seemed to love having his picture taken.
Well, that’s it. That’s not even everything we saw and I took hundreds more pictures, but I hope you enjoyed this little peek into our trip.
