Day 3 - Sea World

Monday August 4th, 2008

Once again, Shamu did not disappoint. It was hotter than blazes, and really humid, but the show was phenom. Hailey loved every second of it, especially because her big brothers and sister sat with her in the "soak zone" so she got splashed and thought that was great!!
We managed to hit every show - except the 4D theater - oh well. The kids also explored the tide pools, where the sea stars live, the bat ray pools, the Manatee Rescue, the Arctic Zone - where the Polar Bears, Beluga Whales, and Walrus' live, the Penguin Habitat and the Shark Encounter.
Parker said that the Cirque De La Mer was the best show at Sea World, but Hailey LOVED the dolphins. Elissa likes Clyde and Seamore - the Sea Lion and Otter show, and the big boys just liked the girls that worked there!
Personally, I love Pet's Rule, and Rich loves the Belugas whales in the arctic zone and the funnel cake!!
We closed the park down - stayed for the fire works and all. Hailey and Parker ran to their little hearts content in the new Sesame Street play place, then immediately passed out almost as soon as their seat belts were on!
Another summer, another trip to Sea World - we love it!! It never gets old - expensive, yes, but not old!
Tomorrow it's back to the beach for a little r&r.

I love your vacation report, Heather. Looks like you are making memories and getting some well-deserved relaxation. How about more pictures of you and Rich -- relaxing!
