It's funny how as we get older we revert back to our childhood, getting giddy again about the places we loved to visit as kids. This years visit to Sea World was no exception. This time however, we weren't just here for Sea World alone, we gathered the family together to celebrate Chad's 34th birthday! Chad's sister Christy, her husband Ryan and kids in tow, met Chad, his mom and I at the park this chilly/windy Friday morning to see what Sea World had to offer. :) It took us a little bit to adjust to the windy chill in the air, but after awhile we didn't even seem to feel it anymore. It was certainly a wonderful birthday....for ALL of US! :)

Good times Sea World...good times ;)
After a very successful trip around the park a few hundred times, catching all the attractions we could possible catch, we called it a day and headed back to Chad's Aunt and Uncle's house where we spent about an hour stuck in traffic just trying to get there! :) Time to rest up for the next day's Early Christmas party with the rest of the family! Stay tuned... :)
