We had the nicest time at Sea World today. I was amazed at how much the kids loved it. I knew they'd enjoy themselves but couldn't have imagined how much.
Luke loved the Orca's and we had to go back and view them a few different times. He and Ella both were in a trance during the show"Believe" At one point Ella, in between her squealing, shouts of joy and applause, tried to run to the glass saying, "I'll save you Orca. Im coming to swim with you!!!" I think she actually thought she would get in the pool somehow. I still cant figure out what they needed saving from.
Luke kept stating how much he loved Sea World. He was a happy and cheerful boy all day. It was one of the most fun Family days I can remember. I loved watching their faces as they saw things for the first time.
The cutest part came after we saw the sharks. Luke was quite nervous and in a bit of a hurry to get out of there, although thats that part he wanted to do right off the bat. When we were done I gave him a high-five and said how proud I was of his bravery. He played it off like he was never scared in the least... false. After a minute he turned to Ella and said, in his sweet voice he uses with her sometimes, "Ella, You did it! I am so proud of you and you were so brave in there with the sharks. You're such a big girl. Gimme five!" Ella's face lit up as she received this praise for another few minutes from her hero. I love watching these encounters.
