First park we hit is Seaworld. This was a hit last year, where we got this monstrosity:
We vowed that it would never happen again. So first rule before entering the park was "No giant pink whales are coming home with us." We also forbade them from playing the games.
We went to the stingray area. Evidently, they eat shrimp. Expensive tastes.
We then fed the dolphins. They like herring. They also like blowing out of their blowhole directly in front of me to get me wet.
Seaworld has a kids water playground, where we went to next. The kids ran around and got wet while the grownups sat.
Next was the show at Shamu stadium, where we saw many orcas working hard to ensure everyone in the splash zone was wet. Yes, that included us.
Back to the kids area to ride some gentle rides.
My unadventurous kids wanted Olive Garden for dinner. It was easier to go than to try & convince them to try something they had never heard of...especially since we could see the signs of a tired meltdown coming on from our daughter.
Both have sacked out quickly. Cans of beer are now opened for the adults.
