The garden (and Missy) is being neglected while the grandkids visit. After the party we all headed to Seaworld with the birthday boy for a couple of days. We only had one problem. No one could decide which was their favourite part.
The stars are still the dolphins but they have a fair bit of competition.
The polar bears are impressive and cute for such a large animal. They swim right up to the glass.
The penguins are simply stunning - so elegant and entertaining in their refrigerated world.
The fairy penguins are sweet and don't seem to mind the Queensland climate.
The sea lions put on a show. They must be very smart animals to learn all the tricks they can do on cue.
The underwater viewing of hand-feeding the sharks and all the other fish was impressive.
Sting rays are such photogenic creatures - so large, but graceful but gentle.
I think the boys enjoyed the battleboats best, even if they got soaked.
The little birthday boy loved the Sesame Street Show
and the waterplay. He wasn't too sure about the water spouts though.
Big brother definitely loved playing in the water.
The rides were pretty good too.
We decided that it was impossible to pick a favourite thing - we just loved it all.
