When I asked Girl Genius what her favorite part of the trip was, this is what she told me. “Remember those seals? They had those funny names [Seymour & Clyde] and they saileded on that boat and then the HUGE seal [walrus] found the treasure.”
Sea World was an amazing day(Saturday). It has always been one of my favorites, and I was so happy to go back. We also saw baby dolphins, polar bear, beluga whale, penguins and roller coasters. And lots and lots of walking. So at lunch I had regular iced tea. And didn’t bolus. And didn’t go high or low 🙂
As with every other day, there was tons of walking. And by the time we made it to Thunder Mountain I was low. I grabbed my handy mangos and sucked them down. Mom Genius offered to stay back with me, but I didn’t let it stop me. Of course, I was still low when I got off the ride. We didn’t get to go around the worlds, but the kids did get to play in the innovations area. Girl Genius fell asleep in the car ride home; Boy Genius stayed with family friends for the fireworks, and I enjoyed the most delicious room service I’ve ever seen.
And for #WDD, we went to Universal: Islands of Adventure. Here are the pictures of our blue from the day.
Most of our time at Universal was spent in Suess-Land. We also “wandered” over to Harry Potter. Which. Was. Incredible. Even if you’re not tall enough to go on the ride, the whole atmosphere is amazing. And if you feel a low coming on, get in line for Butterbeer. It’s so delicious and so sweet. As soon as Mom Genius took a sip she handed it to me and said “too bad you’re not low, this would be perfect.” The ride. The ride was INCREDIBLE. So real and so life like. (Some parts were a little too real).
Yes, I was working. And tracking kids in the midst of crowds can be very exhausting. But I have to say thank you for this AMAZING experience. I don’t know how I came to be this lucky, but I certainly am grateful for it.
