SeaWorld Trip

Yesterday we spent a day at SeaWorld. Delainey and I went with my mother-in-law, Marcia, my sister-in-law, Emily, D's cousin, Paige, and D's 2nd cousin, Collier. We headed down there on our 2 hour drive around 8 am. D was a gem like usual and slept the entire way while the girls watched a movie in the back and I drove. We arrived around 10:30 and hit the rides as soon as we got in. 

It was pretty crowded and very hot. The girls went on the Manta roller coaster while Marcia stayed back with Delainey. It was a cool roller coaster because you lay on your stomach and feel like you are flying. Then we went to see the Shamu show. Delainey loved all the lights and music.

The girls in the soak zone. And boy did they get soaked!

D was sad she was missing Shamu jump! haha
 By the time we got out of the show, the weather became overcast and almost rainy which was nice. We went on Wild Artic and then walked through the Shark encounter before having lunch. We didn't have reservations so we were not able to eat lunch at the restaurant in the shark tank. We did walk through it though. It was unbelievable! I will definitely be eating there next time I go back. 

 D loved walking around in the pack until she passed out on the way to lunch! 

We had lunch at a pizza and pasta buffet then went to feed the dolphins. I have never done this at SeaWorld and it was by far the highlight of the trip! The dolphins were so cool. They felt like wet rubber and would come right up to you to eat and let you pet them. I am adding swimming with the dolphins to the bucket list. I loved them!! Then we went down below and looked at the dolphins through the glass. 

After the dolphins the girls went to ride the roller coaster Kraken while Marcia, D, and I went to watch the Pets Ahoy show. It is all rescued animals that have been trained to do tricks. It is so cute. Then we hit up the last ride, Atlantis water ride, before heading home. We got home at 10:30 at night. It was definitely a long day, but it was so much fun! Delainey was great the entire day and I can't wait to take her back when she is a little bit older to enjoy it a bit more.
