Sea World

When the Grandparents are here all bets are off for "regular" school, and I relabel most things as field trips.  Sounds fun, right?  That's because it is, and as a bonus it's educational and build memories!

As soon as we got there Bitsy and Manly saw "Shivers" the Polar Bear and pleaded with Daddy to take a picture with them, so they stood in line, and got to give Shivers lots of high fives and hugs.
  Apparently we've created a new tradition, and anytime we go anywhere with Pappy, Bitsy has to get her face painted.  She opted for a unicorn this time, and as you can see Manly was not real keen on someone putting paint all over his sister's face.  He's very protective, and I'm sure he was thinking, "If I did that to her, I'd be in A LOT of trouble."

After that we were off to see the animals.  First were the dolphins.

Then the seals and sea lions. 
Manly could sit and watch them all day, and he really loves to see people feed them, so you can imagine how excited he was to feed them himself.

They have those cute little feeding tubes to protect your fish and fingers from the VERY aggressive birds.

We all enjoyed seeing Pappy's impersonation of the sea lions.
Bitsy enjoyed touching the Sea Stars, and Sea Snails.
We also enjoyed seeing Shamu, the penguins, some sea turtles, and polar bears, and the little family of ducklings who walked past while we ate lunch, and right before we left we thought we had been transported back to the zoo, when we got to pet two baby kangaroos.

Little Lettie shows best of all how we all felt when we were done.
We had a great time making memories, and learning about the wonderful creatures that inhabit our earth with us.  They truly show the beauty of our Creator.

Gotta love "new traditions" - I'd say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree in that category!! :-)) Great Grandma is enjoying your blogs - I'm printing and mailing to her - they are a main topic for Saturday's call.
