isn't this ice cream parlor the cutest??
The nice thing about posting vacation photos a week after you get back is that you get to sort of re-live it again. We had such a great time and greatly thank our Orlando friends for giving us such a great hook-up!
Our first theme park adventure was at Sea World. We visited Sea World San Antonio a few years ago. It was fun to check out their brand new exhibit, Antarctica, featuring penguins! It was seriously cold, though. We looked at the penguins as long as we could and then jetted out of the arctic wind. Brrr...
We chose to watch the dolphin show (highly recommended) and the sea lion and otter show. I would also recommend the Shamu show. We did that one last time, and it was excellent.
seahorse made out of trash washed up on shores...so sad.
While the boys braved a loop-de-loop roller coaster, Emma G and I rode the paddle boats. She really, really wanted to ride them. When her feet conveniently didn't touch the pedals, she suddenly declared herself captain. In case you're wondering, the captain is only in charge of steering, not making the boat move. I quickly realized why the lady told us to come back whenever we were tired even though the sign said a 20 minute limit. I was toast by 10. It was hard work!
Sea World was one of our many vacation adventures. More to come!
