Shamu was BY FAR the best part, but worth every penny. The tickets work 'till the end of the year so we'll be back.
Why is it that I had to have kids to regain that AWE and respect for animals. They're amazing. These huge beautiful, powerful, sleek whales, so casually called killer--- swimming nose to nose with some friendly 100 pound blonde. It really is incredible. I still get that flutter in my stomach looking at the pictures. Sophia was enthralled.
Mila.... was more interested in getting anything in her mouth. My poor teething girl.
We went with friends, Tyler and Amber and their little boy Luke. Tyler is one of Ross' best friend's from college, so I've known Ambyr about as long as I've known Ross. She's a doll, and their kid... well just wait for more pictures... you'll die. With Tyler's crazy olive skin and those blond locks... so cute.
Luke saying goodbye.... you've taught him young Tyler. He was determined to get that kiss.

.... and the last thing. Have you noticed that any random picture that has popped up of me, on the blog, in the last several months has boasted the pony or bun??? You can look above or ....review....
So it was highlighting time, and I thought, "what is the good of long hair when you can't bare to wear it down because it's just not pretty anymore?" Something has really changed through my pregnancies and I have different hair. The texture, the color. It's all different. And it's just not pretty, long. It's too much work to do, and when I take the time, after at least an hour, I STILL don't like it and it ends up in a pony after all that work. Argh.
