Brad & I went to Kerrville on Wednesday to pick up the kids. We had decided, since we were already so close, to stop by Sea World on the way home on Thursday. We stayed for about 4 hours, walking all over the park, seeing our favorite shows, and feeding our favorite animals. Zeke loved it. Over the last several months, Zeke has been talking about going to the park to find a Shamu animal to "take home." It was a lot of fun to watch Zeke taking everything in. He was so cute.
Zeke & I got to go in to a large bird house to feed them nectar. It terrified Zeke at first but after the keeper batted off the first 20 that landed on Zeke, leaving him with one, he really warmed up to it. I thought it was REALLY neat until one of the birds vomitted all over my shorts....gross little things. They were really pretty...even though I'm not a really big bird fan.

Zeke & Daddy went into the gift shop and left with the biggest Shamu they could find. Zeke said it was the "hugemungest" they had...he was quite excited to take him home. Since then Zeke has been practicing his trainer moves with Shamu: standing on his back, jumping off his head and laying across his side to help him "wave his wing."
A quiet ride home after Sea World.
