River Walk and Sea World

Last night when we finally arrived in San Antonio, we stopped on the River Walk and ate at the Rain Forest Cafe. The girls thought it was so fun with all the loud moving animals and sudden thunder and lighting storms. They would crack up laughing every time. We ordered the famous volcano dessert after our meal. Conn was very disappointed that they don't use real sparklers in the top of it anymore. I think his exact words were, "That's SO weak!" :) We walked around all 3 levels of the restaurant and looked at the great scenery. We didn't get to our hotel until about 11:30, but they were so wound up that it never really even hit them.

Maggie was so distracted by everything :)

We had a wonderful day today at Sea World! We got to the park around 9:30 and stayed until 3:30. The weather was actually not that bad...for July in Texas. The girls did AMAZING at the park! They loved every bit of it. We fed dolphins, watched the Shamu show, played in the kiddie park, rode roller coasters, and ended the day at the little water spray fountains. Oh, and of course we couldn't leave without the girls getting their very own Shamu to take home! :)

Happy 20th Birthday, Sea World!

Maggie was our official tour guide. She seriously held that map all day!

Nothing better than a little Diet Coke for a thirsty girl!

Your girls are SO cute! I'm so fascinated by them and their cute, matching bows/dresses/hats and shoes - I love it! We are dying to take the boys to Sea World, maybe we can fit it in next year...I remember having a blast there when I was a kid. Have fun in Garner and congrats on the house sale!
