Visit to Seaworld!

We had planned on visiting Disney on the 26th, but we didn't get an early start like we had planned on. (My fault! Jet lag and lack of sleep made me VERY slow moving that morning!!) But we drove up anyway and got stuck in horrific traffic leading up to the Disney gates. After sitting in bumper to bumper traffic for over an hour and a half, we finally made it to the gate!!! SO EXCITED!!! Until....we were told the park was full and we couldn't get in! WHAT??? Completely discouraged, demoralized and needing to pee desperately, we had no choice but to turn around.

We went to a gas station and went to the bathroom and got drinks. We decided to eat a quick lunch and go to Seaworld instead! We were planning to do that anyway, just not on this day. Bella was totally a trooper and didn't complain once, bless her!
See? All smiles!

It was a gorgeous day too!

 
 



These sea horses were so beautiful...and tiny!

 

 
I kept getting jostled (VERY crowded!), so these photos are blurry.

 

 


 
 
Bella loves these!

We loved watching this show!








 
 
 
 
 
Hanging plants look like jellyfish!



NO ONE enjoys rides more than The Bella!!

 
This sign cracked me up - looks like an alien!

Bella's first rollercoaster!! She loved it!



Sea themed merry go round. Bella's #1 favorite ride!!!
Riding with Daddy!

And posing! LOL!!!

This kid knows how to live, and love, in the moment!!!

ALL the arcade games make you a winner! But I won BIG for my Bella!

 
Gorgeous gardens, gorgeous girls!
 

Getting late, saying goodbye to the birds!

Dagan and I went to Sea World when he was about 13 years old and it doesn't look like it has changed all that much. We loved it! What a fun time for Bella and all of you. :)

Did you feed the dolphins? that is by far my favorite thing to do in Sea World. One day ONE DAY I WILL swim with them! So glad you guys had fun after the Disney disappointment.

I'm extremely bummed now. None of your videos are working for me, so my computer must be having a problem. :( Do you have them on YouTube or do you upload directly to Blogger? I forget.

Terri and I took Marty to Sea World Cleveland the summer of 1999. We drove out to Clarion University (in Clarion, PA) for a visitation and headed on out to Ohio afterwards. It was fun and we had a great time while there. I have lots of video but they're on the older style VHS-C tapes. I bought a gadget to transfer them to digital format, but I haven't tried to do any of those videos yet. I might have to try that one day soon.

It looks like everyone had a great time at Sea World. Thanks for sharing your photos.
