In a spur of the moment decision we headed out to Sea World this afternoon. It's opening weekend for the season... so it's been oh about 2 months since we were there last. The weather was just a little bit warmer. Okay so maybe a whole lot warmer! So much so that I'm questioning if my calendar is right or if we all slept for like a month and didn't realize it. Before we even got in the gate (had to stop and buy a new fun card for Abby for this year and they don't have them at HEB yet) Abby was complaining about it being hot and wanted to stand in the shade while we waited in line to buy her ticket. I think it got all the way up to 91 degrees today.
We didn't waste any time and we headed for the newly revamped Shamu's Happy Harbor which is now the Sesame Street Bay Of Play. It's all gotten a new coat of paint, a new stage for Sesame Street singing shows many times a day (and then the characters mingle and take pictures with everyone), lots more shade and they tripled the spray park area. Besides the spray park (that left me regretting not brining along swim suits - who knew I'd want them in February!) my favorite new feature is the new nets to climb up to the slides. The holes are a lot smaller and even Micah could easily climb this now.
Which of course once he realized that I had to climb up with him and take him down the slide several times.
We also saw the dolphins, fish and sharks - all of which the kids loved but I put away my camera and just enjoyed it. I think ya'll will end up seeing lots of pictures (though they might be just iphone pictures as that's a whole lot easier to bring along!) of Sea World this year. We are already planning to head back next weekend to see the Jack Hanna show.
