We decided to take a little break and relax in the Give Kids The World Village for the morning.
I loved that there were these rocking chairs everywhere. We hung out at the Amberville Train Station and played in the Arcade and drove the remote control boats. Caleb was enamored with the miniature train set that filled up an entire room.
The kids played with toys in the Castle of Miracles.
We were treated like royalty.
Erin visited the Star Fairy again.
And we rode around the merry-go-round countless times.
Then we headed to
We went straight to the Manta Rays and the kids got to feed them shrimp. The kids thought it was really funny that the manta rays ate the same kind of shrimp that we do.
Then we fed the dolphins.
It was pretty amazing...well, more like really amazing.
We saw the dolphin show, it is one of my favorite things to do at Sea World.
It is awesome how they can jump and flip all at the same time. They also had a portion of the show were many divers were dressed in bird costumes, they would do acrobatic dives off of really high platforms. It was very fascinating.
We braved the Shark Encounter!
We also saw the Shamu show and then we tried to make it to the Wild Arctic but it started to POUR. We waited it out a bit in an ice cream shop and when it slowed down we whipped out these nifty ponchos I'd bought spur of the moment at WalMart. Wish I'd bought some for John and I...we were soaked.
It was a pretty relaxing day. We really enjoyed the quietness of Sea World and the beauty of the many creatures that we share our world with.
