We normally would have taken that first weekend to relax and sleep, but it was Annabelle's eighth birthday, and we wanted to do something special.

Here's the birthday girl, getting ready to pull us both up Legoland's Tower of Power. Thanks to Annabelle's amazing strength, I was able to sit back and just enjoy the ride:

Fred and I took advantage of a sleepy tourist made out of Lego to display a T-shirt from Habaneros--our most fervently missed restaurant back in Texas. Please send nachos!

Fred, Annabelle, and Mike enjoyed a tasty, cool treat at the end of a long, hot day:

Here is the Reichstag. According to my handy-dandy guidebook, it took almost 2,000 hours to build and is constructed of 1,069,937 Lego blocks. That's a lot of Lego!

We shall end our photo-tour of Legoland Deutschland with a puzzle. Can you spot the geniuses in the next photo? HINT: There are three of them:
