Vacation Report #2

Well, today we had fun. It's 9pm, and we just came in from the hot tub. BestestHusband and the girls tried out the pirate pool this evening, too. But my goal for this trip was to avoid being cold, and so far I'd managed well today.

We didn't tell the girls where we were going this morning until we pulled in to the parking lot. We were all pretty excited. Sea World was everything we hoped it would be: animals, rides, and the sensory overload of an amusement park. And the weather was gorgeous.

We fed dolphins. We marveled at them swimming underwater. We cheered at their acrobatics in the show. I think they made Sea World for us. Shamu was great too, as were the rays, walruses, sea lions, and all the rest. But the dolphins were definitely the highlight.

The girls rode their first roller coaster, and LOVED it. Then they rode it again. They were such good sports. They were less motion sick than we grownups were. I've felt better this week, but there were still rides I wasn't willing to try.

HeyMama was excited and going strong the whole time, but MeToo was spent by lunchtime. She melted down shortly afterwards, and we had to throw in the towel. We took another mega nap when we got back to the hotel.

Today reinforced our idea that Disney would have been too much for MeToo. She was just a basket case halfway through the day. We'll plan the rest of our days accordingly.

I fear we'll run out of days too quickly.
