A Mouse & A Whale

The summer is flying by and you know what they say - Time flies when you're having fun! We've had out-of-town visitors for the last few weeks, and we've been on vacation. We've gone to quite few places. California Adventure was one of them, and a given especially with the opening of Cars Land! It was adorable! It looks just like you're in the movie! There are 3 new rides but we only went on the most fun one, Radiator Spring Racers. It was a lot of fun and, thankfully, we didn't have to wait in the 3 hour long line! Yup, I said it. Three. Hours.

Later that day we made our way to Disneyland and went on a few rides there too. And we watched the kids' favorite show, Fantasmic. They adore that show and I love watching their faces as they watch it along with the firework show!

We also made a trip down south to San Diego for Sea World. The kids, again, loved it! I, on the other hand, did not. I hadn't been in years, and the shows seem so different. For one, the Shamu show was the one I noticed to be the most different and understandably so. You can no longer walk up to the tank and touch it, and also, the trainers do not enter the water with the whales. Because of this, the show is short and a little less entertaining. Sea World is also moving to be more theme parky with its move to add more rides. It's no longer one giant aquarium. But the Sesame Street bay of Play was great for the kids. Jacob had fun climbing and Isabella had a ball splashing around. An after touching dolphins and seeing a slew of animals, needless to say, the kids did not want to go home! And That's all that counts!
