For months, our family has been anxiously awaiting this week. This week we had marked on our calendar, “field trip to Legoland!”
I am pretty sure, my children are the biggest Lego fans in the world. And, Legoland Florida opened back in October. But because the cost for a family of 7 to go to an amusement park (any amusement park) is way out of our budget, we could not go check it out.
Then, we heard about the amazing field trip opportunities Legoland was offering. For only $5 per person they would gladly welcome school groups into the park for a day. One of our home school group members called and set up a date for our group to go. That was back in the fall and the date chosen was not until the end of March. It was a looooong wait but finally, our field trip day arrived!
Tim took the day off work to join us, as did many other dads from our group. We had a blast exploring the park all together with all our home schooling friends. We took literally hundreds of pictures-- of the rides, the Lego creations all over the park, the life-sized Lego mini-figure walking around the park, even the entrance and exit and signs along the way. It was all so cute and so exciting!
Then there were the pictures we took of the kids enjoying their day-- their joyful smiles, their exuberant expressions, the fun of experiencing it all with their friends. I had planned to document our whole day here on my blog, sharing our fun with all….but then I noticed a copyright section on the back of the map. It says:
“ALL LEGOLAND ATTRACTIONS, RIDES, AND LEGO BRICK MODELS ARE PROTECTED BY COPYRIGHT. GUESTS MUST HAVE WRITTEN PERMISSION TO USE PHOTOGRAPHS OR VIDEOTAPE OF LEGOLAND IMAGES FOR COMMERCIAL BROADCASTING, ADVERTISING, MARKETING, OR PUBLISHING IN ANY MEDIUM.”
I am guessing that even my humble little blog would count as “publishing in any medium”. I am guessing that even pictures of my own children with Legoland creations in the background would count too. So I cannot share any of our awesome pictures here. :(
To make up for the lack of photographs, I had my children draw pictures of their favorite Legoland memories. Their pictures turned out very cute, but don’t exactly do justice to the real experience. Still, they’ll have to do…..
