Cali Trip Part 1- Sea World

For the past 7.5 years Jared & I have been wanting to go to Disneyland. Maybe it's ridiculous that it took us so long to get there, but at least we finally did.

We drove 10 hours in our van with the three of us, Jared's parents, and his two teenage brothers. We stopped to eat dinner at my sis-in-law's house in St. George. Here is a pic of Megan with Uncle Tyler & her cousin Oriana with Papa:

Megan slept for about one hour the entire way to California because she was very excited to have so many of her favotire people surrounding her. She was quite good until the last hour or so.

We were lucky enough to stay with Jared's brother & his his wife, who live just 20 minutes from Disneyland. We left Utah on a Saturday, relaxed & went to church on Sunday, and went to Sea World on Monday. This post, obviously, is all about Sea World.

Here is a picture of Megan & I before the Dolphin Show began.

And, a picture of Megan & Jared before they got soaked by the dophins. Megan did not want to be covered with plastic and kept trying to get out- until the first soaking. Then she only wanted to be under the poncho. She was not a happy wet girl.

One very cool thing at Sea World was the tide pool where you could touch starfish and other sea animals. Of course, I was too scared to touch anything, but Megan didn't hold back. Here she is touching a starfish:

And, lastly, we took the kiddos on some rides at the park. Megan was apprehensive at first, but the apprehensiveness turned into anger every time a ride was finished. There was some definite "weeping, wailing, and gnashing of teeth" every time we took her off a ride. Here is Megan and Jared & Uncle Tyler:

That's it for my Sea World post. Honestly, I wasn't all the impresed with Sea World. I thought that the price of admission was really steep for what the park had to offer. In my head I imagined it to be this wonderul, awe-inspiring place. It probably is awesome to kids, though. I'm glad we went because now I know not to go again unless we can get cheaper tickets!

Stay tuned for my next post: Disneyland.
