Get ready for a long post, we have lots of pics! So mommy and daddy took me on my first vacation last week. We headed to Sea World San Antonio and down to the Corpus Christi area to Mustang Island/Port Aransas to a beach house for a week. Mama and Papa (grandparents) were kind enough to get the house for all of us, including my cousins and aunts/uncles. We had a blast. It was me, my parents, my grandparents, my aunt Wendy/Uncle MIke and their 2 kids, then Nene and Jeff and then my cousin CK (Daddy's brother's son from OK) and then my aunt Wendy's neice Cassidy. So we had a big group and everyone pitched in to help take care of me. We left for Sea World on Saturday at about 8:30am. We arrived and checked into a Marriott Courtyard in San Antonio and headed to lunch and then Seaworld. We spent the day there until they closed at 10pm. I did really well on the drive there- almost 5 hours and hardly fussed at all. Here are some pics of everything we did.
At Seaworld, we saw a lot. Daddy fed the dolphins, we saw the sharks, saw the Shamu show at night, rode 2 water rides, did the water park and saw the walruses and penguins. It was really hot though, so all the adults had to stop for lots of samples of the free beer on both days. good thing Anhauser Busch owns the park! We were really tired both days since the park is very spread out and there is a lot of walking. Plus keeping a group of 10 adults and 3 kids together is a challenge in itself, nevermind the 90-100 degree heat.
Here is Daddy feeding the dolphins Me and my cousins- Mikey (almost 2) and Ally (almost 5)
After a full day at seaworld, i was wiped out and took a nap with my new Shamu!

Mikey made a huge mess in the sand. He loved it!Here I am playing in the sand and water. I loved crawling and trying to eat Must eat sand!!!! we also took a nature/dolphin watch cruise one night. it was about 2 hours and we saw dolphins and then they also had live sea creatures in the boat for us to touch and feel, including crabs and fish.
Our spot at the beach in the shade! Man, this vacation stuff is hard work, it is wearing me out! My cousin CK built some sand castles on the last day. it was his first time to ever see the ocean. He had a blast boogie boarding the whole trip. Well that was my trip. i had a blast, although i had a 9hour trip back home this weekend. But i travelled so well. My next trip will be to DisneyWorld in December 2009, so a year and a half away. I am sure I will go somewhere on a short vacation before then. But for now, I have great pictures and memories of the beach!
