With my sleep pants soaked with pee, I headed back to bedroom and realized I had no clean PJ's to wear to bed. No problem! I wasn't going to get much sleep anyway because Sophia's night terrors had woken up Tallen. He was sitting up in his bad that we had made on the floor and he asked me to hold him. I laid him next to me in the bed and tried to go back to sleep for two hours but he was too wiggly. Finally I got up and put him back in his "bed" on the floor... where he stayed until about 6:30 AM when he woke up and wanted me to hold him again. Oh the joys of sleeping with the kids in a hotel room.
|Ready for SeaWorld! Seriously, my kids hate to look at the camera.|
We were in line early to get good seats for the first show of the day, Azul, which featured whales, dolphins, birds, acrobats, synchronized swimmers and high divers. It was breathtaking and actually kept both of my kid's attention the entire show!

It was noon and it was already HOT so we headed to the water park. Tallen was in the stroller and on the verge of falling asleep so I found a spot in the shade where I could watch Trey, Sophia and Miss K at the splash pool. The we moved on to my favorite spot in the entire park... the lazy river. We made Sophia wear a life jacket so she could swim without holding onto me for dear life, which meant I could float next to her in a tube. Miss K kept an eagle eye on her and we made several loops around the lazy river while Trey took a break while Tallen was sleeping.
Tallen woke up grumpy and hated it when we took him to the water while Sophia started whining that she was starving. Again, we were off our usual schedule and I knew we were on the edge of a major meltdown so we headed to the cafe in the covered pavilion at the water park (water, shade and food were needed NOW). Tallen didn't eat much again (how does that kid even grow?) but we all felt better after our lunch. We left the water park and headed to the Sesame Street Bay of Play, in hopes that we could find a spot that Tallen would enjoy. That kid was not having it... He hated every water feature and cried any time we went near them but Sophia had a blast.
I asked Trey for the time and realized we were going to miss the next Shamu show (it started in five minutes and we were a good 10 minutes away from the stadium and still soaking wet). We decided to dry off by walking to see the sea lions.
|Hey sea lions! Look at us over here!|
|Feeding them stinky fish|
|He may look sweet but he is really trying to steal my sunglasses!|
