Under the Sea(World)!

If you couldn't already tell from FB or Instagram, our trip to San Diego was AWESOME. The weather was AMAZING, and I died a little inside when I was able to wear a sweatshirt in the evenings.

One of the highlights of our trip was SEAWORLD! We got a pass from Costco that allowed us to go to SeaWorld, the zoo, and the Safari Park as many times as we'd like for seven consecutive days. Our hotel was super close to SeaWorld, so we went just about every night and just about all day on Friday.

We had a blast! Here are some of the highlights:

 Here are the dolphins trying to get jello off the side of the tank. We also got to see the dolphin show (which was amazing!), but I didn't take any pictures. :( 

 We saw the night show, Shamu Rocks, a few times. We loved it! We especially loved when baby Shamu, Makani, basically put on his own show!

 Grandma and Grandpa joined us for a few shows on Friday!

 Brother and Polly waiting for the show to start!

 These whales are incredible!

There's the baby on the right doing his own thing!

 Our cousins, the Drexlers, joined us for a while on Friday. We had a blast with the boys!

The Sea Lion show is a MUST see! Hilarious! 

Check out the video of the Shamu Rocks night show on my Facebook (it wouldn't upload on here for some reason). You'll have to look closely, but you should be able to see baby Makani putting on his own show. It was SO stinkin' cute!!!!

We also enjoyed riding rides, building our own burgers, petting rays, watching the animals, and admiring the nightly fireworks. Thanks, SeaWorld, for an awesome time!!!

Still to come: the Zoo, the Safari Park, and a tour around San Diego! Stay tuned!
