Sort Of Back To Normal and More Seaworld Pictures
Today is about the closest to normal we have gotten all week. While I do not normally give homework, or after school work, DJ will be doing some this weekend. He finds it easier to do some math over the weekend, than do more than one chapter in a day, so that is what he will be doing.
Some of these pictures were taken by DJ and some by myself. Craig and Caitlin don't really get into the pictures so much. This time around we made sure and got to the Shamu show right when we got there. We were way up high, so the pictures are not the greatest, but you get the idea. Then we went back to the helicopter simulator ride through the Arctic. That was very cool! Caitlin got a little scared, but she didn't even make a squeel. Then you got to see Arctic animals like polar bears, walrus, and beluga whales. It was all very cool. Very dark and cool so the pictures did not come out real great. The walrus was amazing, that thing is huge, and what a funny looking face up close. Then DJ and Craig conquered the Kraken, the rollercoaster. They loved it and I am grateful Caitlin is too short to go on, LOL! Then we went to see the dolphins. They are always so much fun. The kids got to touch one just barely, and a big one jumped up and twirled right in front of us, so close if you knew he was going to do it you could have touched it. It got us all wet, but it was warm. I didn't have the camera ready, but what a shot that would have been. The next time we go, in the Fall, we are going to sign up to pet and feed the dolphins. Of course all the other exhibits were amazing as well, and look at those parrots. They are just stunning. If you ever get a chance to go, I highly recommend it. DJ will be doing a blog post on the clown fish, and the blue tang the fish from Finding Nemo. So be sure to check out his blog later today.
