Seaworld and Childrens Museum Trip

Well our little family just had a great couple of days. We have been talking about taking advantage of the fact that SeaWorld offers free tickets to the military and their families once a year. We know that we are leaving Texas soon and we didnt want to go before we took that advantage and had a fun trip to SeaWorld. Well we decided now was the time. So we packed the kid up along with our friend Liz and her two kids and headed out. We decided to stop in Austin the first day and go to the Childrens Museum there. Ada has been to Omsi, Portland Childrens Museum and the Salt Lake Childrens Museum and loved each of them so I knew she would have a good time. And we got lucky and admission was half price! Ada really had a good time there. She really liked playing on the slide and playing with the golf balls that you put in different toys and watch them plink their way down. Liz has Bubba (Brian) who is two and him and Ada play really well together so they had a lot of fun exploring things. It was so much fun to watch her play and see her little mind work. Each time we take her places she is getting older and so she is understanding better the things that she can do. But she is also getting so independent and just wants to run off on her own and do what she wants to do so she can be a little handful. But we had a lot of fun.

After the kids museum we got in the car and headed to San Antonio. Once we got to the hotel we took the kids swimming. We got Ada some little floaties that go on her arms for a buck at wal mart and oh wow! They were the best investment EVER! She LOVES the water!!! She was having so much fun! She was swimming all on her own. She kicked her feet and kept her head above the water! It was so fun to watch her. I had no idea she was already that good at it. She is so comfortable in the water! After swimming we headed to dinner and then it was night night time!

The next day we headed off to Sea World! We had a lot of fun there. We got to see the dolphins and watch the Believe killer whale show. Ada really liked that. Scott and I really enjoyed that show as well. Neither of us have been to Sea World so this was just as much a trip for us as it was for her. Unfortunatly the day got really hot at this point so we took a break and ate some lunch. Well by the time lunch was over the weather started to turn bad. Scott and I were able to ride one ride, it was a water ride. And then lightning struck and they closed all the rides and the shows. So sadly we only got to see the Believe show but hey atleast we got to see that. We still walked around to all the animals and the kids enjoyed seeing all of them. They also have a kid area that we let them run around at and play in the water and stuff. Also Ada rode her first two carnival rides. She wasn't to sure about them. All in all we had a great day and a good time! It was such a fun trip!
