Right before school started we decided to take a quick trip out to San Diego before Natalie started her new job and I started taking classes. While we were there we went to Sea World, to see if it was as cool as we remembered from going there as kids.
It was fun, but probably not something we'll be doing again soon.
Spaz, however, loved it. She got really excited looking at all the fish... and all the attention
|She was really concerned about the giant turtle... Daddy, not so much.|
|I (Dallas) got to touch the dolphins a couple of times, Natalie didn't have the same luck.|
At the dolphin tank they have 2 sections of glass, so the dolphins can see you as well as you can see them. I took Spaz over to one, and she got really excited every time a dolphin would swim past. After about 15 minutes, one of the dolphins pulled a Shamu, and splashed a ton of water out of the pool... all over Spaz and me. After about 5 minutes, she calmed down, so we went back to the wall, and the same dolphin splashed us again. Keeping a safer distance, we watched him splash the crowds 4 more times. He must have thought it was hilarious.
We found an amazing hike. There was even a waterfall at the end of the hike. Spaz had a blast playing in the water!
|Look at that face!|
We went to Show Low for the Fourth and had fun hanging out with all the Fish's.
|Natalie's grandmother passed away a few months after these were taken, this was the last time we got to see her in good health.|
