Yesterday we went to the San Diego Sea World. Now Tom and I have been to ALL the Sea World parks YAY. I remember being a little girl and thinking Sea World was THE park for me. I told myself I would go all the time when I grew up, and here we are. I’m all grown up and I get to go whenever I want, especially now that we live in San Antonio! If Sea World San Diego merged with Sea World San Antonio it would be AWESOME! I think both of these parks are great. We had a lot of fun seeing all the shows. The weather could have been better though. So far this San Diego trip has been good. The hotel we are in is amazing! Tom’s conference is in the more expensive Hyatt across the street, and it was all booked up which made us choose this Embassy Suites. It’s perfect for a family because it offers free wifi and breakfast. The “higher end” hotels across the street were much more expensive for a basic small room, AND NO free breakfast or WIFI. Plus the hotel we are in has suite rooms which gives us all the space we need to spend some down time. Sometimes I dread travel because it gets so cramped and inconvenient, especially with a toddler. My body doesn’t tolerate eating out a lot because it tends to be really heavy, unhealthy foods. Even a salad at a basic restaurant can be as unhealthy as a greasy cheeseburger. By the end of the trip I usually live off of granola bars because my stomach hurts. Luckily this hotel has a refrigerator and microwave in the room so we were able to buy some healthy foods at Ralphs.
Yesterday we went to the San Antonio Sea World for the first time. It was GREAT! I love Sea World so much. The weekend Tom and I got engaged we were in Orlando Florida and we spent most of that trip at Sea World. So now it was nice to come to OUR Sea World with Audrey. She loved it! I was SO impressed with everything they had created for the young children. There were HUGE play areas for kids and rides for all ages. We went to 5 shows too. Audrey was so funny watching the show because she would get so excited. At one point during the Beluga Whale show the trainer silenced the crowd to let the whale make noises and she asked “are you ready? – well the only person in the whole audience to yell “I’M READY!” was Audrey. You can hear her pretty clearly in the vlog lol. This Sea World was definitely better than the Orlando location. There was a lot more to see and the Orca show was great. I can’t wait to see what the water park is like when it gets warmer.
This picture is of Shamu bowls that Tom and I got the weekend we were engaged. They actually sell ice cream in them, but we kept the bowls and stuck the on our wall. While we were at Sea World yesterday we got an ice cream sundae with the same bowl for Audrey! Now we can stick our baby shamu under the mommy and daddy 🙂 Watch the vlog of our day
