Sea World Day 2 (videos added)

Sorry for the picture delay. We came home to 2 weeks worth of laundry and ironing and a goal of spending Memorial Day weekend potty training...

So here are the pictures from our second day at Sea World...

Mom made me a 2nd outfit...


She's figured this shorts pattern out...


I told Shamu bye-bye before we headed out...


We believe Sea World is a 2 day adventure... there's just WAY too much to see!


We started with the alligators... do you see him?


Yep he was that close to us!!!


and yes, mommy did freak a little that I was this close!


We found a ride I could ride (it was the LONGEST ride ever!!!)...


Every time it would stop we would swing side to side...


Happy girl! Ready to see penguins!


I love the penguins and puffins...


Here's a little video, mom could seriously spend the day watching them...

and mom and dad planned it so we could go to the encounter! Look how cute he is!


The keeper talked about everything the penguin does (he's an animal ambassador)...


I was captivated...


Dad showed me how to read the map and I was able to point out where Shamu's stadium was every time... I was ready to go see him!


Back to watching penguins...


Bye Bye Penguin!


Since I met the height requirements daddy and I decided to do the log chute. It was scary I'm not going to lie...


After the first drop I told daddy "don't do that again" and I still had 3 more to go! But man have I talked about it! I've been talking about the water slide for days now!


We headed to watch a little Shamu (and snuck out early to get lunch... truly the best idea ever)...


Then we went to watch the ski show (which we've never watched). It was AWESOME!


Next it was time for the alligator encounter...

I shook his hand...


and petted his belly...


I even got to help feed the big guys!


Next it was time to go see Baby Beluga...


This show is SO dramatic and I don't do drama well, I didn't last long...


We watched from the back for a few minutes but it was HOT...


So we headed over to Shamu's Happy Harbor to cool off...


SO fun!


I got completely cooled off...


and splashed...


I jumped...


and crawled...


and stuck my head in the water (ha!)...


Look how much fun I had!

It was busy, but it was SO fun!


The only thing that could get me to leave the water area... ice cream!


Our tip of the day: We saw a family when we were coming into the park using a stroller as a tripod and the timer on their camera... seriously we've never thought of this? It was SO simple! Mom is always worried someone is going to run off with her camera so this is a fantastic solution.


We got to see the stingrays getting fed...


and checked out the eels again...


I asked daddy if mommy and I could feed the dolphins since we weren't brave enough the first day...


That was fun!


My prize for the day: A Shamu puppet... I love him!


Mom thought this was funny...


Exhausted, hot, but SO happy!


One of my favorite things during the trip was pushing the button for the elevator... and I loved playing the game of which elevator was going to come...


After a nice little nap we headed to The Cove...


It's a hippie fish taco/gourmet burger place with a great playground!


I got to play the entire time...


I even went down both of the big slides...


and ate over the fence while mommy and daddy enjoyed their burgers...


What a fun day!
