A Blast
My parents have been here for the last week and a half and we have had so much fun! We could have had more fun if an Arctic front hadn't come with them from Idaho... it kept us in the house a lot more than we wanted, but it was still a great visit. One of the highlights was Sea World. I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but it was amazing! At first I wondered if I would feel sorry for these creatures. But then I saw how well they were cared for. And to be able to interact more closely (see above picture of the kids and I touching a Bat Ray) it made me feel more concern for their wild counterparts. I came home with more awareness of the earth. And we had a blast at the same time! These animals are amazing! It took your breath away to see them jump and flip and just seem to have a good time. We had a blast and can't wait to go back again!

Sea World would be a must see for me in California. I've been to the one in Orlando when I was 17, it was fantastic. We went to the Vancouver Aquarium in 2005 and I was so disappointed.
Many years ago we vacationed in Idaho and went to a theme park there. I can't remember the name. It was near a place that started with an "A" I think. We were also in Sandpoint and toured around Washington too.

RaNae - I'm still thinking about my tag... lol... I'm glad you like the pic of me and baby girl. The one that dh took right before that was one of her trying to put a string up my nose. Lovely...

Shirlee... sounds like you were at SilverWood up by Coeur D'Alene... we lived an hour and a half from there for about 3 years. But never went to the theme park. The kids were really little and it didn't sound too fun.
