We decided to take all the kiddos (because we're crazy like that) and head over to Sea World yesterday. My sister Tracy came, too. Sea World is fun, but not my favorite place. I am deathly afraid of all things fishy. I knew the kids would love it, though.....and they did. I threw together a bunch of pics. Look if you want...don't if you don't. But if you don't, then don't bother coming back here. I didn't really like you anyways. :) Kidding!!
It rained the whole first half of the day. We didn't really care. We were planning on getting drenched at the Shamu show anyway. Plus, apparently lots of people melt in the rain, so rainy days = short lines.
Here are a few examples of the hilarious things my kids said to me while we were out and about. they sure do keep life interesting....
Mikaily, my 7 year old, said to me: "Uuuuuugh!! You are being so mean! Why are you so mean?? When I grow up and have my own kids, I am going to be mean to them just like you are to me and then they are going to hurt me." Ummmmm, was that supposed to be a threat? I believe that is what they call being passive-aggressive. She is a little odd sometimes.
I took my 5 year old, Kyle, on the Journey to Atlantis ride. He was barely tall enough. It is the water coaster at Sea World. The first hill is pretty big and very steep. I am guessing it would scare the crap out of most adults. He loved it. And by loved it, I mean hated it. Before the wave settled at the bottom of the first hill, he shouted "I don't want to do that again!!" We didn't. We went to the kiddie section and they had a little Shamu kiddie coaster. He wanted to ride it. We did. When it pulled to a stop, I looked over and said "So, did you like that one?" He thought for a minute and said "Only a little bit. I think I will try it again when I am 6."
"Bye guys! See ya later" This is what Evan, my 3 year old, yelled as he ran off into the crowd.
"Come on guys. Lets get out of here. This place is really freaking me out!" Kyle said this as he was walking through the "glass" tube that goes straight through the middle of the shark tank. Can't blame him for being freaked out. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree....
"WOW! Are you going to go do that next??" Evan said to me, pointing to the trainer riding on the killer whale's back.
*** A little add on here! I forgot to list the comment that takes the prize for comment of the day....
We were watching the Shamu show and I was sitting beside Kyle. Shamu swims out (underwater, obviously, so you don't know he's coming unless you KNOW he's coming) and dramatically jumps up and out of the water. Kyle says "WOOOOAH!!! Mom! He's bigger than you are!!!" Thanks kid, I love you too!
