First Amusement Park Trip

Russell and I decided we needed to take our girls to an amusement park before the next baby comes because we have never taken them anywhere.  Disneyland would be too much walking (and I can't ride all the rides) and we didn't think they would get that into the zoo so we decided to take them to Sea World on friday and change our 3 day weekend into a 4 day weekend.  It was a pretty fun trip, but the girls didn't get as excited as I'd hoped they would.  I'm so upset though- I uploaded all the pictures to the computer and it turns out that they all look horrible!  The lens must have been really dirty, because all the pictures are really fuzzy.  Bear with me . . .



They loved the pet show the best.  It is such a cute show and they loved watching all the dogs and cats run around the stage, as well as the piggy.  Halfway through the day they were ready for a nap and took a nice hour and a half nap so they could last the rest of the day.

They liked watching the fish okay and for some reason they have a fascination with walruses, so they liked watching them.
After their naps we let them play around in the Sesame Street play area.  They have lots of water toys, so we put on the girls' swimsuits and let them play around.  It was the first time all day where they got to run around and play and they LOVED it!


All in all it was a pretty good day.  Hopefully next time we take them they will have a longer attention span.  At times they were more interested in the planes flying overhead than the dolphins jumping out of the water 30 feet in front of them.
