As we started to compose the story about our first visit to Legoland California, our 10 yr old asked if he could write it. You see, Legoland was his favorite part of our 2017 San Diego summer road trip and he wanted to share the good, cool, awesome, and ridonculus of his experience. So without further ado, one day at Legoland California, from his perspective:
