Sea World Trip #2

When we went to Sea World back in May we bought the "fun pass" so that we could go pack as many times as we wanted through the end of the year for free. While we were in San Diego last weekend for a friend's wedding, we decided to go again.
Here's the whole family at the start of the day (I've learned to take pictures like this at the start of an activity when dealing with toddlers- not the end). Nathan spent the first couple of hours in the Moby wrap with me. (Thanks for the recommendation, Nicole- I LOVE this wrap)
Here are the girls outside of the shark tank.
Nathan also spent some time in the Snugli with Russell and later with my mom. He was a happy camper because he got to be held close the whole day
We took the girls on the gondola ride. They weren't scared at all as you can see. They were sticking their heads out of the bars and looking straight down. The view of the bay was beautiful.
They LOVED the dolphins
My brother and his wife and 2 kids met us at Sea World halfway through the day. The girls love playing with them. Morgan has a special bond with Matthew and both girls just love my niece Sara. Here they are holding starfish.
We got to take the girls on their first rides in the Sesame Street play area. They really liked this one. Here's me and Madylin.
And Russell and Morgan
This ride is like the tea cups at Disneyland. From left to right there is Matt, Morgan, Sara, Madylin, and me. Morgan actually threw a huge tantrum because she didn't want to get off.
She didn't get over it easily, but Matt coaxed her into having some fun playing in the water. That's my SIL Jessica holding Madylin and my nephew Kaleb behind her.

The girls seemed to have a little more fun this time around and we look forward to taking them again soon. Nathan will be happy too if it means he gets to be held all day!
