A Day at SeaWorld

Last Friday I headed down to SeaWorld in San Diego and spent the day with my parents thanks to my favorite science writer, Tiffany, of Polka Dotted Cats. It was an absolute blast! The best part? I got to hold a penguin! This isn't something that people just get to do. I am so lucky to have had the experience. Just look at that little baby!



We rode roller coasters, pet stingrays, and spotted so many amazing creatures! Here are some photos taken over the course of the day.




And since they sell alcohol we had to have a few beers to end the day. Great smile dad!

What a cool experience to hold a dolphin. I read somewhere that dolphins have so much positive vibe that if you come near to one you'd be so positively charged for a month.

So fun! Even though I've been about 10 times, I can't wait to go next month. I'm so jealous of your penguin experience. They are my favorite animal!

Awww!! You got to hold a penguin!! That's so awesome. It looks like you had a great time, and I love the flamingos :)

WAIT- How did you get to hold a penguin????! I'm so jealous! She looks huge, too- I always figure penguins are the size of cats...clearly, that's incorrect.

I'm glad you had a blast...it's totally making me miss Sea World. Thanks for sharing your great pics!

We LOVE Sea World!!! In fact we are going one more time before school starts! Do they have the Journey to Atlantis ride there? And you got to hold a penguin? No way! I don't think ours has that. I loved seeing all the pics from your weekend! You ladies lived it up!
