Time for something different. We drove to San Diego to hit SeaWorld. Bring on the fish! Or dudes with shells…Sydney had the camera in this exhibit and took tons of pictures of fish and turtles. A few turned out pretty good. Here was one.
This was Sydney’s boyfriend! The biggest walrus you ever saw. He was over in the corner by her. He had a mouth full of chewed fish and he would repeatedly spit them out onto the glass and suck them back in. 100 times. Weirdest thing.
Or maybe this guy was her boyfriend. She watched him for a long time too. Guess there is snow in southern California.
“Dad, can I have more money? They are hungry!” I heard that over and over as I forked out money to feed the sea lions. She has her mother’s genes. So we fed the sea lions one by one.
You had to perform to get the fish. Literally.
The final stop was Shamu. Kim and I won’t forget Syd’s first Shamu show where she stood on her seat yelling “woo hoo” with a fist in the air whenever anything happened. This time was more subdued. She was too worried about being soaked by the big giant.
Instead, she got soaked on the water ride when she had a raincoat malfunction. You have to cinch it down and tuck it in. Learn from Reagan!
In the parking lot, Syd had a melt down because Reagan got something and she didn’t. I explained about all the stuff she had gotten already. She was way in the lead. Didn’t matter. It always sucks to end the day on a note like that but she popped back shortly after. Finished the day by hitting up Ghirardelli in San Diego’s downtown. Yes, it was ice cream for dinner! Then we made the longish drive back to LA. We ate a later dinner at Denny’s next to our hotel. So then that was breakfast for a late snack? I think the kids enjoyed that crazy parenting style. Last day at Disney tomorrow. Rest well!
