Sea World is a great spot for a family vacation. We drove from Horseshoe bay and it was only about an hour and twenty minutes, not too bad. The girls loved it, the weather was nice and Aven just slept the day away in her stroller. These pictures are all out of order.
We were lucky enough to be there for feeding time. I would about have a heart attack to do this woman's job.
Before we went in to the park, it sure was bright!
In the Sesame Street Bay of Play we got to see some of our Sesame Street favorites. However, Kylie clammed up and became really shy. Blake loved running up and hugging on these furry characters.
This ride was full of kids and dads. I guess all the mom's volunteered their husbands to ride this very slow and almost torturous ride. It basically loaded everyone up which took forever, went around a time or two and then took forever to unload. Far from thrilling.
Shamu show!! Even though the trainers don't ride around on Shamu and shoot through the air on his nose anymore, it's still a pretty cool show. I remember when I was little everyone wanted to have this career when they grew up. How many people said they wanted to be a dolphin or whale trainer after visiting Sea World? The job doesn't really appeal to me as an adult though.
Sweet little babies in the chick corral. So hilarious that they are all in that labeled box. They were cute and fluffy though.
The Stingray touch tank was a miniature anxiety attack for Blake and I. We would wait for the stingrays to swim up and then they would and we would freak out and back up. I finally got up the nerve to touch one and it was a wet a marshmallow.
And the highlight, feeding our dolphin friends! This was such a great experience for my ocean animal loving girls. The dolphins swim right up to you and you get to toss fish in their mouths.

I know I said I didn't want baby contraptions taking over my tiny house, but it happened. I now have a swing, bouncy seat and jumperoo taking up the remaining few square feet I had in the living room and dining room. Drat. I just really needed something to put Aven in while working, which is at least half the day every day on the computer. And are you wondering what that pink clam like thing is in her seat? It's called the hugga-bebe deluxe and it makes babies that are too little for things like this be able to fit. And her head will still make a fast flop every now and then and at least I know it will just flop into the pink squish.
