So yesterday Brian and I were supposed to spend the day at the beach and just chillax. Well, first thing in the morning we got the grand idea to go to Seaworld. We had heard that they were having a good deal, so we headed out. We left around 9:20 and we got there around noon. Harrison didn’t sleep at all on the way there, or at all while we were at the park either. And he was overtired so he fussed to fall asleep on the ride home — stinker! But considering he didn’t nap all day, he was AMAZING. He was so good. I think there was just so much going on and so much to do he liked that his attention was peaked at every turn.
So we got there, and we decided to buy a season’s pass, even though we could be moving, because a season’s pass was the cost of going 1.5 times. Totally worth it. We are hoping to head back next week on Brian’s day off, maybe.
So the park is HUGE. We were told you can’t do the park in one day, but we pretty much did. The only thing we didn’t see that we kind of wanted to was the Shamu show. We could have seen the 7:30 p.m. show, but we wanted to get on the road.
Harrison got to pet a stingray — they are SLIMY! He also got to pet a dolphin and they feel like a balloon. They are SO friendly. He got to feed the seals and the dolphins too. He was in heaven.
So we started the day at the dolphin nursery. This is where they have the mommy-to-be dolphins and there was a new mommy with her baby calf with her. SO cute!
Then we headed to the stingrays and the turtles (tur-tur according to Harrison). The stingrays you can reach in a pet. The boys had fun doing that. The tur-turs were boring. And there weren’t very many of them.
Then we went to feed the dolphins. SO fun. We got to pet them and be right up close to them. Harrison LOVED it. He wanted to jump in and swim with them.
Then we headed to a really cool show with dolphins and whales. It was SO well done. The music was great and the show was fabulous.
Then I think we ate lunch (EXPENSIVE!). Harrison covered himself in watermelon — that’s what Harrison and mommy had for lunch. Daddy had pizza.
We then went to the penguin exhibit — really fun! Harrison liked to watch them.
Then we went to the seals. HILARIOUS! Brian got some food to feed them. So the boys fed the LOUD seals who begged for food! We were there looking at the seals and feeding them and listening to them and then Harrison starts making a barking noise just like the seals. We didn’t tell him to or anything, he just started to do it. He is so smart! Then we saw the seal show — SO FUNNY TOO! These two big seals were so funny.
Then we went to the shark exhibit and the fish exhibit — you walk under the aquariums, they put a tube through the aquariums so you are surrounded by fish or sharks. SCARY! LOL.
Then we went to the wild arctic, which the show was dumb, but we got to see a polar bear, three beluga whales and a couple of walruses. Harrison didn’t want to the leave walruses. Apparently he had made friends with them LOL.
Then we headed home. It was SUCH a fun day. I’m so glad we went.
Here are the pictures!
