Sea World San Antonio

Last Saturday, we decided to take a family trip to Sea World San Antonio. We ended up going with my older sister, Natalie, her two boys, Austin (9 yrs) and Aidan (6 yrs), and my mom. It's been years since Josh and I have been and Lincoln is old enough to recognize animals and notice if something is interesting, so away we went.
It's about 1 1/2 hours from Marble Falls so we left around 8:30 am to get there by 10:00. My sister has season passes, which comes with a coupon booklet so she let us use a couple coupons to get in at a discounted rate and get a discount on the photo they take of you when you first arrive.

So, the closest attraction when you walk in is Dolphin Cove where you can feed the dolphins fish. This is MY favorite part and it seemed that it was Lincoln's too. He loved WATCHING the dolphins, but wanted nothing to do with TOUCHING them.

We saw the Budweiser Horses at the stables, which terrified Lincoln, and took a picture with them. We saw the Viva show with the dolphins and divers. However, in both the dolphin and the seal shows that we saw, the animals didn't want to do the routines, so the trainers had to improvise a little.

Josh and I rode some roller coasters while mom or Nat watched Lincoln. Austin got his face painted like a Gargoyle and Aidan got to play the games to win a prize. Overall it was a very fun, but exhausting day.
