A Sweet Valentine’s Day In Hershey PA

9 9 13 PA 355

If you are like me, Valentine’s Day is a family affair, as well as a day to remember your sweetheart. In my house, I have two loves- the one I married, and the one I gave birth to. Valentine’s Day is a celebration of love for us – not just the romantic kind. (And there is always after the kids go to bed for a nice amorous evening and eating dessert in peace.)

Greetings from Sea World! @SeaWorld

Christmas at Sea World

Shamu- Christmas at Sea World

Hello from Little Man and Shamu! Sea World is his favorite theme park in Orlando, and the one he most looks forward to. We were undeterred by the cold, and quite excited that we were able to see the costumed Shamu to pose with for photos. We have never had that opportunity before.

Sea World has so much to see and do- from rides to water park (though not today!) and a wide array of shows, you and your family should not miss this attraction the next time you are in the Orlando area. This time, the weather was not super cooperative, so we didn’t do any water rides (they were off, in fact). I am thinking that it may be me- the last few times we went to FL, there were hurricanes, so perhaps I am a harbinger of “fun weather”, LOL. This time, is was very cold (below 60 each day, and down into the 30’s) for the area, and there were even tornado warnings 🙂 Wahoo!

Sea World ShowThat didn’t stop the day from being a whole lot of fun, however. My son LOVES the shows, all of them. We saw Blue Horizons for the first time, which we all enjoyed. The theme was a little (a lot) out there, but it didn’t really matter. It was full of action, stunts (by people and animals), flying birds of several varieties, and aerial performances. There were colorful costumes, banners, flags, and people dressed as tropical birds as well, all adding to the spectacle.
