Part 3... Seaworld

I finally got a chance to go through the photos and have a few more to put up here... mostly from our trip to Seaworld. Tired is an understatement after that day...
But we all had fun. And we managed to not buy a thing at all except for an icecream each as we were leaving. No junk food for lunch, no crappy made in China souvenirs, no rip off merchandise! Gotta love that.

Lachie spent a lot of time in the ergo, and was being a bit of a cling-on. I think he was a bit put out by all the people, I'm pretty sure he's never seen that many people at once before, lol. But of course Caitlyn was in her element, and raced around doing as much as she possibly could. We spent the day with Jill (friend of Judy's, my Mum's sister, who we were staying with) and her granddaughters, Ella and Miranda. Caitlyn played with them last time we stayed at Judy's, when I was pregnant with Lachie, and they had a lot of fun.

The kids wanted to spend all day on the rides, and couldn't understand why we'd want to drag them away to look at other stuff... until they saw it of course :P
Lachie was absolutely enthralled by the Sesame Street show. I think he was the only one of the kids that watched the whole thing LOL.

And yes, that is a big bruise on his cheek, courtesy of a chair. He was chasing Caitlyn around a corner... she saw the chair, he didn't. For about 4 days he had a bruise from the corner of his eye all the way down his cheek. ouch.

The dolphin show was amazing. Lachie went to sleep on me though, so I don't think he was much impressed...

Then we went to see a 4D movie, and had to wear these glasses... horrible photo of Caitlyn LOL, but it's the only one I have. Jill brought a stroller along for the bags to sit in, and for the girls to have an occasional sit and rest in. So I put Lachie in there when he fell asleep, and he slept through the movie, complete with blasting air and sprays of water, and extremely loud sound effects.

Then continued to sleep as we made our way to the water park. The girls had been begging all day to go swimming, Caitlyn in particular... and it was about 4pm by then, so they jumped in, and Caitlyn was blue within about 10 minutes, but that didn't stop her lol.
