vacation day seven: back to sea world

For our last full day in San Diego we decided to head back to Sea Word as we missed a few things on our first day there.

We got a warm welcome at the gate.

The big kids and daddy put on their parka’s and went to see how many times they could ride the Atlantis ride in an hour and 45 minutes (6). 

Eli and I kept ourselves occupied.

IMG_7480_edited-1 We might have done a little shopping.

And taken a ride up.  Way up!

Later we all joined forces to see the Sesame Street 4D show.  It was great, but a little too much for Eli.  So darn it, dad missed the ending!

Then the kids were acting lovey dovey long enough for me to snap some pics.

Before we left the girls had time for one last ride.

We had a BLAST on our trip.  San Diego is a huge city of over 1,000,000 people but it does not feel like it is so big.  Almost everything is a pretty quick drive and the traffic was not bad at all.  We still have lots we need to see so I imagine we will be coming back!

the ride

When we were at LegoLand Hannah saw a ride she really wanted to go on. 

I was hoping she wouldn’t meet the height requirement. 

But she did. 

So I relented.  It was the only ride she went on that made me really nervous.

But of course after they got off Hannah immediately said “I want to go on it again!”. 

And they did.
