Sea World 2008

Last week while my sister and neices were in town, we went to Sea World! My...how things have changed??? They actually have a roller-coaster there: Journey To Atlantis! We took Madi on her first roller-coaster ride! Tamina (my sister) coaxed Madi through the ride...did I mention that Madi is only 7yrs. old? Her older sisters Jada (11) and Raylean (12) are already "old pros". They've been on the ride before - when their school came for a field trip! They enjoyed the adventure... Madi? Not so much! Tamina kept telling her she's "riding with the big dawgs" as a form of encouragement! It didn't help! She made it through, but didn't want to have any part of it...any more! We rode one more time, handing Madi off to our cousin who was working the ride at the time! It was FUN! I guess Madi's not ready for Six Flags just yet?

Somethings never change...Clyde and Seamore (the walrus and sea lion show) remained the same, only the outfits and performers have changed! New show - Pets Rule, was fun! They had pets (dogs, cats, pigs, birds, ducks...am I missing anything?) perform a variety of tricks. What was neat was that all the pets were "rescue" animals from animal shelters...see..."You can teach an old dog new tricks" - cats too! Dolphin show & Shamu...not much to change really! What I wish they would bring back is the Sparkletts Light & Water Show!!! Does anyone remember that? It was timed lighting, set to music, mixed with dancing streams of water! The 4-D show (Sesame Street) was okay, CA Adventure seemed to be better. We all got wet on the Roaring Rapids ride...sure wished it wasn't so cloudy or that the sun was beginning to set!

I tried to post a slideshow of my Sea World photos (all pictures were taken from my phone mind you)...but I can't seem to figure it out???
Needless to say, I had a great time...well spent with family...sure wish we got an earlier start though! There's always next year?
