There are many reasons that we live in San Diego. One is that our family lives here. We live about 5 minutes from both my parents and my in-laws. My sister-in-law’s family lives about 10 minutes away, and my brother’s family lives 15 minutes away. Another reason is that you can count on the weather to be mild most of the time. I have been freezing lately but that is just me. And yet another reason is the ability to play tourist in your own town. Yesterday, we went to Sea World down by Mission Bay. Sea World, even though it is close, is not a place I go very often. I think this is mostly because we love Legoland so much and would rather go there. We had a good time at Sea World though and I am half-considering getting the Fun Card for 2016 for all of us.
Sea World was still decorated for Christmas so I was able to get some nice pictures of my kids and my parents. I won’t be posting those here but here are some pictures I took of the decorations.
We weren’t able to go to any of the shows this time. I don’t think my kids minded too much. My second son really wanted to see the sharks so that is what we did first.
We also stopped in my favorite exhibit, the penguins!
The three pictures above were taken at Sea World’s Bay of Play, which is the main reason I would get the Fun Card. I remember playing on the net climbs at Sesame Place in Pennsylvania. This play area is a lot like that! My three oldest boys loved the net climb. This would be a good place to take them after we are done homeschooling for the day.
On our way out of the park, we stopped at the horseshoe crab and bamboo shark exhibit at the front. There was a guide sitting behind the bamboo shark exhibit who was talking to everyone who stopped by. He was pretty funny!
I almost forgot! Happy New Year to all of you!
