I am so glad we went back to Sea World this summer. Watching her face light up when she sees the animals is priceless. It rained all morning the first morning but had stopped by the time we got to the park. So it was just a nice, cool, cloudy day. We did the same routine as last time - made a circle around the park, watching the shows, and seeing the animal habitats. She still absolutely loved the dog show - it never gets old! She liked the penguins, but it was already their nap time (in Antarctica) so they were mostly sleeping. At the middle of the back side are all the roller coasters and I know Cody wanted to go on one. Then, we saw one that said, No Wait, so he rode one while we watched. It was kinda funny, watching his roller coast go overhead. After that, we watched the ski show, which was pretty cool. They didn't have that this past fall. It was about lunch time, so we headed out to the car and sat in the A/C and ate some food. It was good to relax and just rest. Afterwards, we headed to the kiddie playground which is a huge maze of rope nets. She was pretty brave, more than we would have liked her to be. Cody talked her into riding the roller coasters for kids, and she loved them! We all rode the tea cup ferris wheel, which is pretty slow. But then Cody had her ride the carousel and the spinning fish boat. I was thoroughly impressed by how much she liked them. She has never wanted to ride before! She laughed the whole time the boat was spinning them around and even through her hands up in the air like she wasn't scared! After she rode the rides a few times, we headed to the sea lion show. It's pretty funny and this time they had a walrus that weighed over a ton. It was huge! She was exhausted at this point (she didn't sleep well the night before) so we headed back to the Lulfs for dinner. It was a full day, but totally worth the exhaustion!
