BiG Improvement!! -No Nose Tic-Tacs Today!

Disney got put on hold for a day... We went to Seaworld today! Our entire purpose was to let Ethan see the dolphins since he does such a great (noise) impression. But, he kicked and balked-and was having NO dolphin show. We did get to see the baby dolphins, so maybe that was enough.
And did I mention it was HoT? I mean sweat dripping down my back-and farther. Ick. So gross, and it just made everyone irritable. Mary Claire couldn't wait to see Shamu, so that's all we heard about, Clay was hot and wanted to tell us where to go constantly, and Ethan was pretty good. He fell asleep right before the Shamu show and slept for almost two hours! Ches watched him in the (leaned back) stroller before and during the show, then I watched him (and almost fell asleep) while he took the kids to play in Shamu Land (or some cutesy equivalent). We couldn't ride the big roller coasters because the kids had to be at least 54 inches. Whatever. There was nothing big and cool for them to ride! I mean, I'm not ThAT much taller than that! So, it was totally not worth $280 for our five hours of heatstroke and some dolphin/killer whale action. Ugh. And tomorrow they'd like to go to Universal Studios!! What happened to our Disney trip?? I'm getting side-railed! But then, I'd LOVE to see La Nouba (Cirque de Soleil) one night. I wanted to go last year, but it just didn't happen. This year it'd be tough with Ethan. He wouldn't watch, so it have to be without him or not at all (pretty likely at this point!).

So, today no nose tic-tacs, but a little blowing on the (hotel room) vacuum attachment (full mouth)-and only God knows where it's been. Really.
And not as much stress, and we're up one pizza as Flippers brought the wrong order. But the garlic bread they sent on accident was absolutely wonderful and worth the trouble!!

Maybe Disney tomorrow-it's Mary Claire's bday (Big 7!), and she has chosen Animal Kingdom. Call me Surprised! : O I'll post you some pix of our birthday celebration. : )

ps-follows are some pix from today-less exciting, but our day, nonetheless. : )

Hi Holly!! Your home is fine, all is well, the storm didn't even move a chair by the pool which is great. Dora had a gas grill move three feet in the wind..yikes!

Lovely photos! Glad you guys are having a great time and the photos are great. Why not have Clay take a photo of you and the Ches man together? That would be nice. I love Sea World, it is truly magical.

Enjoy every moment, for as busy as you are, it will be over before you know it, so have oodles of good fun.

Love and hugs~~~

p.s. And yes, I remember next Tuesday ;O)
Also, I got 'the list'. Consider it done.
