Weekend Recap

SEA WORLD ! ! We spent this past Saturday in Orlando at Sea World. We headed out Friday afternoon and spent the night in a local hotel so we could get to the park first thing in the morning. We went with Katie and her son Austin, who is the same age as Gavin.

When we woke up Saturday the kids were super excited to get a start on the day. It was lightly raining as we headed out and by the time we got to the park the rain had stopped. The whole day ended up being overcast- which was great - no Florida sun beating down on us!!

We went straight to the Clyde and Seymour show. Clyde and Seymour are Sea Lions and had quite a funny act. Danyelle, Gavin, and Austin sat in the 5th row hoping to get splashed.

From there we headed to the shark exhibit where we walked thru an underwater viewing tunnel. This let the sharks swim around and on top of us. It was wonderful to be that up close to the sharks.

Sea World has an area just for kids called Shamu's Happy Harbor, where we headed next. This weekend the park was celebrating Halloween so every kid got a Halloween bag to go Trick or Treating with at the park. It was such fun for the kids to go from station to station collection the candy!

Then it was time for the Great Shamu ! ! The show was captivating to watch. It was such an enormous wonder to be that close to a killer whale. Everyone thought the show was great. Even Katelyn who by then was ready for a nap!

We also took in the dolphin show, saw the penguins, and watched the dolphins play. We had the best time at the stingray tank. We bought some stinky cut up fish to feed the stingrays. Gavin thought this was really fun. Sticking his hand in the tank while he was holding the fish for the stingray to grab from him made him scream with delight. Danyelle ,though, thought this was disgusting and watched from afar.
After that Ken and Danyelle rode Kraken a floor less roller coaster. Danyelle said they went so fast the wind in her eyes made her cry. They both enjoyed it alot.

We ended the day playing some games where both Danyelle and Gavin won stuffed Shamu whales. After a quick ice cream on the way out we were done for the day. Before you knew it we had spent 10 hours at the park and every minute was fun filled.
What a great way to spend the weekend- with family and friends. Hope everyone else had a great weekend too !
