Everette Travels to San Diego to Live the Ultimate LEGO Enthusiast's Dream

11/16/2012

Everette loves LEGOs. He doesn't hesitate to call them his favorite toy, and in his spare time he can be seen constructing new creations. His living room is full of different size containers filled with LEGOs. When it came time for Everett to choose his wish, it was no surprise that he decided he wanted to go to LEGOLAND® in California to spend a day with Master Builder Gary McIntire.

This past summer, Everette and his family boarded a plane and traveled from their home in York, PA, to San Diego, CA. They stayed on the LEGOLAND property so they were close to all the action. Everette spent the day with Gary, a master builder at LEGOLAND. There he learned about the behind-the-scenes mechanics of LEGOLAND. After the tour, Everette was able to work with Gary to make a miniature version of himself with LEGOs. After Everett build his "mini-me", Gary told him to choose a place to put it in LEGOLAND Park. At first, Everette was going to put his creation on the LEGO Capital Building, but he decided it was too crowded with other mini-me's. He ended up choosing The Golden Gate Bridge to house his mini-me, because there wasn't anyone else on it.

The rest of Everette's trip to San Diego was spent sightseeing. He and his family traveled to Hollywood and visited the famous Grauman's Chinese Theater where the handprints of famous Hollywood stars reside. He also went to Mulholland Drive and saw Hollywood sprawled out in front of him. He saw the famous outdoor concert arena called the Hollywood Bowl, which was his favorite California landmark . He also went down streets where celebrities were rumored to live and to Santa Monica Pier. The family went swimming in the ocean even though it was a little cold that day. It was a wonderful adventure for Everette and the memories he gained from the trip will last he and his family a lifetime.
