SeaWorld!

It is spring break! Joe was (of course) out of town, but that wouldn't stop me from having a fun time! I hauled the kids down to San Antonio and met my bro-in-law (and family) and MIL for some fun!

We stayed in a BEAUTIFUL Super 8... just kidding. Dan is fired, and I will have Joe make all remaining hotel reservations for me.... ;) actually, I guess all I needed was a place to sleep. Who cares if the floor was disgusting and they didnt clean it ever.

So, here are the pics from Sea World! The kids had fun. It was a bit frustrating when they wouldn't try some of the rides, but next time we will bring Daddy, and he will make them....
why are my children such WUSSES???

Favorite show: the Shamu show BELIEVE
Favorite ride: Texas Splashdown

The kids (especially Nate) LOVED the dolphins! it was a great trip!

On our way home, we stopped by the Alamo (but i forgot my camera in the car)... I think next time I go, I want to spend some REAL time in those outlet stores in San Marcos. ;)

Audrey loved the dolphins too, she didn't want to leave them to look at anything else. She also loved the shows too. Sounds like fun, I really want to go back to Sea World. I didn't know Aaron lost his front teeth! He looks cute!

How fun! That's my little trip that I would love to take Syd on sometime - I think she would LOVE SeaWorld, it's so fun. Looks like it was really nice weather for it too, I'm glad you had a fun trip! Happy Easter!

And you didn't even let me know that you were in town!

That looks like so much fun! I really want to go and do that sometime.

I noticed that Aaron lost his two front teeth...so cute!

Right by the Alamo is the Menguer Bar(I think that's what it is called). It's a bar and hotel. It is where Teddy Roosevelt recruited the Ruff Riders. He gave a speech in the bar and the men signed up, wrote their families back home and told them they'd see them in a year or two! And you think you have it bad when your hubby leaves for a few days!;) Anyway, another historic thing to see if you get back there.

Great pics! We haven't been to Sea World since Rachel was a baby (love their water park!) I forced my kids to go on some rides at Six Flags, and they are still griping at me about it. Your kids aren't the only wusses.

P.S. I'm so sorry you had to stay at Super 8...I feel like taking a disinfecting shower just reading about it.

Emily, I'd love to do some cakes for you. If you know the approximate dates you will need them, I can save those spots for you. I do have a couple other cakes I am doing in April, so let me know. :)

Oh, and I forgot to add that my kid is a major wuss too. I think all theme parks will be a major waste of money until he gets a little older.

I love Sea World! Sounds like a fun trip! How far away is it from your house?

Jennifer said...

What a fun mom you are! Your kids are lucky.

Hey, we were at Sea World on Friday. While Sea World is great, the crowds were horrible. Note to self: don't ever go on a Spring Break/Good Friday combo. I'm glad you had fun.

I can't believe you braved that without your hubby! Great job Em! My kids would have tied me up in the back of the car and gone for one heck of a road trip!
What a fun time it looks like you had!

Heath has been waiting patiently for an opportunity to let you walk back from a restaurant...
