We headed to Sea World on our last day in the San Antonio area. It had been a l-o-n-g time since Matt or I had been to a Sea World and, of course, our boys had never been. While Ryan has a bit young to really understand what was going on, Ian LOVED it!
We decided to see the Shamu show first, before it would get too full. As it turned out, the arena was HUGE! It was probably only 1/3 full. We both agreed that Sea World has really come a long way since both of us had been there. Their facilities were absolutely beautiful!
Ryan enjoyed the sea lion show, too! Ian loved giving the otter a hug!
We had a great day and talked already about going back to Sea World in a few more years, when Ryan can enjoy more of the sights and Ian can ride more of the rides. Hey ... maybe YOU'D like to join us!

Matt had an administrators' conference in San Antonio at the beginning of March! Since he had a hotel room all to himself ... and since our boys are good travelers ... and since San Antonio is only a few hours away, we figured that it'd be fun to turn it in to a family getaway! Kim was a little nervous thinking about taking care of the boys by herself in a new setting, but it turned out great!
We stopped to admire a duck with her ducklings before taking a cruise on the Riverwalk. Ian, who didn't remember doing this two years ago, thought it was especially fun! Matt and I learned some unique trivia that we didn't remember, too.
He only wanted to go on the semi-creepy school bus once.
After that, we walked across the street to a playground.
He learned all about earthworms!
Some of Ian's favorite stops at the museum were the HEB grocery store, where the products actually scanned,
Overall, we loved San Antonio and the change of pace and the chance to explore as a family!
