So we make the drive to San Diego and arrive shortly before noon. We step out of the van and BAM! Strong winds smack right us right in the face. Oh man... I knew it was going to be a little on the cloudy side, but I wasn't expecting strong winds. We zipped up and off we went to the park. We've never been here before so were a little lost and weren't quite sure which way to go... but considering that this is the home of Shamu, we figured that's the first thing we'd like to see. And literally, Shamu was the first thing we see at the park and we took a picture with it. lol

We caught many shows while there, but nothing was more entertaining than the SLL, Sea Lions Live, show. That show was awesome. It's unique in the way that one of the cast members will entertain the crowd before the show starts. So as he's setting up, he starts to play some very popular tunes... and starts immitating the artists and their dances! A memorable one is the opening number from Grease where John Travolta and Olivia Newton have their duet. The guy wore a wig, half Danny and half Sandy, and sang both parts and danced both parts. Simply classic. The sea lions weren't that bad either. They danced, they sang, they grunted, they made faces, all the while doing it a la SNL style. If you're ever at SeaWorld, do not miss this show!

It was a tiring day. There is plenty of walking to do and a lot of cool sights to see. There isn't much in terms of rides for older kids but if your young ones are adventurous and little on the "I want to learn" side, they'll definitely enjoy the many exhibits and atractions that SeaWolrd has to offer. And with that, I'll leave ya with a few more pics of our trip. So, what did you guys do this Memorial Day weekend? Later!
