Peeps Have Arrived

We made it! From Omaha, Nebraska to San Diego, California, we’ve officially embarked on the biggest summer family vacation since that whole Disney World experience a couple of years back.

He’s only been asking to visit that place ever since LEGO started sending him discount passes back when he was still in diapers. Seriously. Those fine LEGO people sure know how to nail that particular market, now don’t they? No worries, because with so many amazing visitor ‘hot spots’ we can’t very well go wrong with a San Diego vacation. And there’s always the beach factor!

So now we’re all happily flipping through these ‘lil gems:
