Sea World and Shamu, too!
Today, we took the boys to Sea World and we had all been looking very forward to it. Excitement was definitely running high.
Unfortunately, it rained all morning. By the time we left the park, we were like wet rats. Well, wet, salty, rats at any rate. Shamu and her friends made sure that we never got a chance to be dry again! That was a bit much for DS12, my aspie. He refused to go to anything that involved a possibility of getting wet for the remainder of the day. We left a bit before hubby and DS11, who were wanting to get in some thrill rides.
They tell me that the Atlantis ride was a big hit, but they can't describe too much of it because they took their glasses off and put them in a fanny pack so that they wouldn't get damaged or lost. However, the Sea Hag was apparently very scary sounding.
I was very impressed with DS12's stamina today. He generally has a very hard time with anything that is very physical, but, despite a few rough spots, he did very well for over 5 1/2 hours. I figured that he would be good for about 3 or so. DS11, as always, is a trooper that can go for miles and miles if critters are involved.
Feeding the dolphins was a huge hit and the dolphin nursery was really cool. Apparently, puffins are insane! All in all, a great day.
