We went to Sea World and had a blast!
Both boys loved the penguins! Tate still talks about them and likes to show us his impersonation by waddling around the living room.
They enjoyed all the shows, but I think their favorite was the pet show. It was sooo cute and amazing to see everything the animals had been trained to do. There was even a trained mouse and pig!
I was so surprised when Collin reached in and touched one on his own. Tate wanted nothing to do with it.
(I was kinda with him on that one.)
I thought this octopus was beautiful. The ocean really is a beautiful place. (Minus sharks ;)
We stopped by the Dolphin exhibit to pet some dolphins, but Collin got a little more than he bargained for. The minute he walked up to the wall and peered over, a dolphin swam by and flipped water at us with his fin.
Poor Collin got the worst of it and was done with dolphins from that moment forward.
Tate taking a little rest on papa :)
Look who else we saw while we were there!
Collin has a thing for Christmas trees. He loves them. So he got super excited when he saw this huge one outside Santa's sleigh.
These next series of pictures aren't the best quality, but I find them hilarious. The boys decided to go on a ride and this shows the different stages of emotion that Tate felt while riding.
I think it's safe to say that he preferred the shows to the rides :)
It was such a fun day and we really enjoyed being together as a family.
