sea world: the park.

today was the big day, and sea world did not disappoint. we were a little nervous we were going to be rained out, but the prayer ellie prayed before we left must have worked. there were a few dozen rain drops, but it was mostly breezy and quite comfortable. there weren't any crowds either, being that it was wednesday. we were at the park from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and ellie walked almost the whole way. she only fussed a couple times and was mostly a sweet, sweet girl. she had a great time with papa john and can't wait to bring grayson back next summer.

we're here!

the first thing we saw were some bottlenose dolphins.

next, sharks!
(i worked very hard to get this shot for you, landon. hehe.)

the coral reef exhibit. such a pretty fish.

ellie pointing at two fish that were "kissing."

a "spikey lobster" and an eel.


and walking.

random-faced ellie and mommy.

making sure we knew where to go to see shamu.

very intent while watching...


next, the water park.

water ballet.


wave jumping with papa john.


more waves.

blowing bubbles.

water baby.

sacked out after saying, "i love sea world! i had so much fun!"
