Wow! Holly left me a very thoughtful gift in my email this morning! Check out our new header for Chicken Blog. Using pictures I took, she did some graphic magic, a specialty of her's, and voila! Then Geoff added his technical magic, (2 geniuses-one family!) and now we are one sharp looking Chicken Blog.

Chicken Blog goes LEGO!

What a day we had! We cannot thank our friend Deanne
enough for the amazing Legoland day she arranged for us.

Tahu Nuva, a Big Red Bionicle Figure

Alex's favorite Lego theme, Bionicle, just got its own corner in the Park and Deanne invited us to a sneak preview party with more goodies and extras than we ever dreamed of.

Besides including Holly, Nicholas, Kristin and Jordan and the rest of us, we were also treated to breakfast and early admission to ride "Bionicle Blaster!"

William, Alex and Max are more than delighted with an ordinary day at Legoland (aka: The Mother Ship,) but this day really was exceptional, for us all. The boys enjoy stopping by the Lego lab where master builders are busy at work on product development and assembly of new creations for use in the Park. On this day we were all allowed behind the scenes to meet the master builders themselves, see the 5 million Legos they work with, witness new creations and be simply in awe of the creativity and fun.

Alex aspires to be a master builder, and I think William wouldn't mind working there either. Okay, even Geoff made some job inquiries. We were able to ask questions and explore a bit, and marvel at all the cool stuff like; adjustable tables, aisles and aisles of organized Legos, and stuff...just really cool stuff!

Notice: 'All over the floor' is not how the Master Builders do it!

Thanks to Chicken Blog, the boys were able to share some of their creations and collections. We opened up the web page where I had posted images of William and Alex's efforts.

Imagine our surprise when we saw ourselves as mini Lego Models!

It was hard to pull ourselves away, but we wouldn't want to delay the progress of the master builders, so we did eventually return to seeing the rest of the fun sights and rides, like Safari adventures, shows in the Fourth Dimension, and other California sights.

Mini Land provides all the best sights.

And on a clear day, it's possible to see San Francisco,
from Mann's Chinese Theater.
