Spring Break 2010 -- San Antonio!

It hasn't been the greatest spring break, with Grandpa in the hospital and Maya with bronchitis -- until today. Grandpa was moved from ICU to a regular room, and is expected to leave the hospital tomorrow or the next day. And Maya hasn't had a fever in two days. So our trip to Sea World in San Antonio began as planned! We drove down today, checked into our hotel which is only 2 miles from Sea World, and took the shuttle to the park late in the afternoon.
We only caught a couple of shows, and will head back for the full Sea World treatment tomorrow. We watched a 4-D movie, a pirate adventure, and discovered what the 4th dimension meant after the movie started -- when crabs crawled all over trapped pirates, something "crawled" over our ankles! When the bees buzzed, our seats vibrated. And anytime there was water sprayed in the movie, we got sprayed, too. The announcer warned that the experience might be "intense for small children," but it didn't bother Maya. Zoe, on the other hand, spent the entire film in my lap with her face buried in my neck!

The girls agree that the best show in the world was the sea lion show. And they are agreed that we just HAVE to see it again tomorrow. They are not, however, in agreement about whether to sit in the "splash zone." Maya wants to get wet, and Zoe doesn't. If I cast the tie-breaking vote, we will stay nice and dry . . . .


If you've been reading the blog for a while, you know I stay pretty focused on all-adoption, all the time -- except at spring break and other vacations. We'll return to our usual programming after we return from Sea World!
