I find the busier I keep Lucas during the day, the better both our dispositions, not to mention, tiring him out usually means more naps!
Climbing the stairs is a good place to start, but doesn't quite cut it most days, so each week we attend a music class, go for walks along the beach or throughout the small town where we live, visit each of the three different parks in our neighborhood and have Mommy & Me play dates.
I am forever trying to find fun new things for us to do in order to pass the time... especially the bewitching hours of 2:00 - 5:00.
Today we went to the Sea Life Aquarium and Legoland with our friends Jenn and her one year old, Tristan. It was a very fun day.
If you think that there isn't anything to do for one year olds at Legoland, you are sorely mistaken. Duplo Playtown was made for toddlers with it's little tot-sized buildings, slides and all the Duplo they can play with.
After a sufficient amount of play, we walked the boys through Miniland U.S.A., which includes reproductions of seven areas of the United States, all constructed with 20 million Legos in 1:20 scale. It truly is amazing and a definite must-see. The Las Vegas strip was my favorite.
The boys had a great time and we will be returning soon.
The best is yet to be.
