Sea World Day 5

Thought we might switch things up a bit today and take a break from the Disney end of things. When Taylie was in the hospital she loved to watch Free Willey. We would sit and talk about going to see the whales just like him. Crazy to think that we don't have to talk about it because we are here!

Not too much of a schedule planned for today. I think the tiredness is catching up a little with the girls.

Welcome to Sea World with The Abbott Family!

Learned that Shamu was alive and well even out of water ;-)

I loved the landscaping everywhere. The flowers and plant were just incredible! It was fun to see all kinds of different animals today.

The whale show was very cool. We didn't sit close enough to get wet though. I think we were all dragging a bit today. It got very hot today very fast! At the Dolphin show Taylie and Bret sat way close while me and the other two sat distant enough to stay dry. Let's say they got their wish and got plenty wet.

Didn't take long for us to get going. We spotted the Sting Rays and they were cool. We fed them little fishes. Mayzi, not so much, but Taylie was loving it. Notice the look of happy in her eyes! This is something she always wanted to come and do again.

We found the Dolphins soon enough. They gave us extra fish to feed them because we were on our Make a Wish!

We like Sea World!

Plenty of places to stop and just relax a spell.

So many aquariums and fish to see. My girls love to see fish...wonder why? Couldn't be influenced by their Daddy!

We went to see the Sea Lion and Otter Show. It was my favorite. There was a mime making fun of all the people that came in. We laughed and laughed!

A little lunch is a good thing. Had a few friendly squirrel visitors, which Mayzi thought was so cool.

Just Chillin...

We waited for the last Whale show to begin and then we hurried quick to see the rest of the park. All the Artic animals and the Sharks etc. Was really cool because we were like the only ones at the park. Like it was all to ourselves!

In our many ventures to the parks and such we always would pass this lovely store. Today though the Hot Donut sign was on and who could resist.......Not us! very yummy after a long fun day!

We did our usual nightly routine of making a mad dash to the pool, ate a little ice cream and brought home dinner to eat. Then we would crash on the couch for a bit and watch a movie until we fell asleep. Full tummies, happy kids = very happy parents!

Another great day for the books!


  1. Your girls are so cute all dressed the same.... your a better mom than me. I never match them in cute clothes. :) I'm glad your having such a fun time on your vaca!!!

    Love your pics by the way... they'll look back on these pics and have all kinds of memories to share with you for years. They are so much fun to watch grow.

  2. Lace,

    Thanks for letting me sleep over for the past three nights! It was nice not to get the creeps while Nolan was gone and fun talking with you til 1 every morning.

    I checked your link on the old blog to find Taylie's new blog address. I think you need to change it again...whoops! I figured it out though. Just take out the "Super" in the address so it's and then it will be right. Not like you couldn't have figured that out yourself.

    Well our men will be home today. No more wondering whether Melissa will ever come in at night! Thanks again.

    I just love your girls. I'll have to come over and say hi a little more often.
