So I added the crack-icing on the cake...

I don't know why I went and did it...you saw the previous post with pictures of the hotel pool, you know the place where I was going to planted all weekend? But NO, I gave in and became a tourist for a day at Sea World. My mom gave the kids the option today, "where do you want to go, the pool or Sea World?" If you were a kid, what would you pick? Sea World of course; so off we went.

Did I ever mention how intolerant I have become of heat? I think I am more intolerant of heat than the people who come here in the middle of the summer for vacation. Probably because most of us that live in Florida stay inside most of the summer. As soon as we were dropped off from the hotel shuttle, I began to sweat...you know that constant sweat that just drips down your back all day? After a couple hours in these conditions, tempers start to fray (tempers meaning mine). I don't think I was the most pleasant mommy (or daughter) today (sorry guys!). I was so hot at one point that I let the kids do this:


Jack the redneck baby in just a swim diaper and Emmy fully clothed



so I could live vicariously...(added bonus: you get a little cooler when they come over and give you hugs!)

After the park we went straight back to the hotel pool for a quick dip and cooling off before a torential thundershower hit.


All in all it was a good weekend with Mom (Gigi) and 2 out of 3 kids fell asleep on the way home.

Sea World in July? Sounds almost as bad as our day at Disney on the fourth of July. We had talked about going when we were in San Antonio last month...but decided that it was way too freakin' hot. Have you ever done Discovery Cove? That I would like to do...

Oh my, you ARE a trooper. We're planning a day at Sea World when we come in December. Glad to know that I'll need to pack bathing suits (just in case). :-)

I do not like to sweat. Probably the biggest reason that I do not like to be outdoors. It also may be the Yankee blood in me... I like cool weather!!!

But judging by your pics, it looks like you all had a good time!
