We started our morning at Sea World by feeding the dolphins. AWESOME!

Papa got three trays of fish for $15, and shared them with us and the Deich family.

It was a rather warm and muggy day the day we were there, probably the warmest of all the days we were in Texas.

In spite of the heat, we had a lot of fun. 

We were able to meet Shamu....

One of the highlights for the day was eating lunch with Shamu.

It was an up front and personal experience with 3 of the Shamu whales and their trainers.

We enjoyed a buffet style lunch of jambalaya, ribs and chicken, macaroni and cheese, salad, lots of sweets and cookies.

We got to ask the trainers lots of questions and learned a lot about the whales.

In the end, the shows were the biggest highlights for the kids. Treyton loved the high divers, and Alexa loved the whales. It was a really great day. If you ask the kids what there favorite part of Texas is, they would probably say Sea World.
