MON | 18 grabbed jamba juice on our way to the train station. got off at the old town exit and took an interesting bus ride to sea world. there weren't a lot of empty seats so i sat on darric's lap. this nasty guy got on the bus and informed me, in his lispy voice, that i had the betht theat in the houthe. when we arrived and got our tickets we rode the sky tower all the way up. i kept my eyes closed the entire time. then i waited off with max and tommy while everyone else rode the new manta ride. then we went and saw the dolphin show. which was only alright. especially since the sun decided to shine down in full force during those 20 minutes. we went and hung out with the sea lions and seagulls for a little while. they were pretty funny to watch beg for food. darric and bill couldn't resist getting some food to feed them. you had to hurry fast or the birds would swoop by and grab it. we went and fed ourselves next at the smokehouse. that line was long and the food, of course, wasn't that great. we saw the penguins, beluga whales, walrus and sleeping polar bear. then we all rode the journey to atlantis. that was a fun ride. we stopped for a snack and then headed over to ride the rapids ride, stopping at the dolphin pool first. the dolphins never came over to us and the rapids line was too long for our liking. mixter bought a sword, we walked by where shamu was and then headed out of the park. grabbed two taxis and went back to wait for the train. our timing was pretty good and we didn't have to wait too long. we ate at the ocean house that night. the food was good. and we all decided to order the snickers pie for dessert. it was good too.
SAT | 23 i got up and got ready so i could go pick up the kob-ers. we all missed him. i also got gas and dunkin donuts while i was out too. kobe didn't seem too excited to see me. and his right eye was kinda droopy. when i pulled into the garage, the kids couldn't wait for him to get out of the car. it took me all day long to get the laundry all done. the kids played with their legos and kobe was back to normal in no time.
SUN | 24 max and i went and did some shopping today, after him and his dad went to the farmer's market. we were on the search for a gift for my dad. we went to bass pro shops first. with no luck at all. max found himself something. a crossbow toy. he bought it with his leftover vacation money. we went to target next. i ended up getting my dad a camping thermos thing that will keep carbonated beverages cold. then i grabbed a keurig maker from me, jen and jodie. we went over for dinner to celebrate my dad's birthday. we ate and then he opened his gifts and that's when we learned he no longer drinks coffee. (i think he should start again - or at least enjoy a cup of hot chocolate during the winter months)
