Hey Y’all! Playing catch up here a bit and wanted to blog some memories of our trip to SeaWorld San Antonio. We had a fabulous time, minus the crazy gas lines due to hurricane Harvey that particular week.
We took off for a long weekend and brought along our niece Ellie who is 22 hours older than Connor. They’ve always been really close and Connor was super excited to bring his cousin. During our trip you would be surprised how many people asked me how old my twins were…lol! They do look alike with the blonde hair and blue eyes 🙂
We started our day out before the park opened. We purchased tickets to feed the animals and have a private tour before hand. I definitely recommend this! It was so nice to not have to deal with crowds and get up close and personal with the sea life.
We headed to see the dolphins and got to play with them for a a little while. We also wrote fun messages on the glass wall. I loved those dolphins they were so friendly!
Our second stop was to feed the sea lions fish. They were super hungry apparently and barked over and over. Feisty little fellows!
My husband…the bird whisperer 🙂
Connor & Ellie with the dolphins
This bird shall be named Elvis for obvious reasons. Elvis and I are great friends now btw.
Ready to see Shamu the killer whale! We sat in the splash zone…don’t do this unless you want to walk out with soggy bottoms.
My absolute FAVORITE thing about the whole trip was being able to swim with the dolphins. It was AMAZING! They are so precious and interactive with everyone. I now want to turn our pool into a saltwater paradise so I can have a pet dolphin.
Getting in and out of that wet suit was another story….but let’s move on shall we….
Terence’s recruiter from his Air Force days happened to be in San Antonio the same time we were helping with Hurricane relief. We hadn’t seen him in YEARS and it was so nice to catch up with him and reconnect. We enjoyed an authentic Mexican dinner and wonderful company.
We stayed at the Courtyard San Antonio SeaWorld and I cannot say enough about how wonderful our stay was here! The rooms were nicely furnished and clean. We had a sitting area, desk, and coffee nook. If you are planning a visit to SeaWorld San Antonio I highly recommend this hotel. It was the perfect location, minutes away from SeaWorld and right off the freeway.
We let the kiddos each pick out a souvenir of their visit and Ellie chose a pink dolphin and Connor chose an eel. We made some great memories that I hope they will cherish forever and we can’t wait for our next adventure!
