A Surprise Trip

Guess where we went today? Seaworld!

This is what I love and appreciate about my stay-at-home lifestyle. I can just take off on a day trip whenever I feel like it. We didn't go to sleep last night thinking that we'd be spending the day at Seaworld today.

I woke up, checked the weather forecast (mostly fine, top of 26C), and thought, 'Sounds like a good day for Seaworld'. Especially since I got a shop-a-docket for adults at kids prices a couple of days ago.

Aaron didn't get a full nap so there was a bit of a meltdown at 4pm but other than that, we had a great time. My favorites from the day are the dolphins and the sharks. And of course, for Aaron, the rides were the highlight. This was the first time that he went on any sort of ride. I've never let him go on the ones you see in malls because I didn't want to set that precedent and ruin all future shopping trips. So, I guess it really meant something to him today.

Aaron was asleep before he hit the bed tonight and I think I'm headed that way too now. I can't imagine what it will be like when he's a little older and needs me to go on those big kids rides with him. Or maybe, he won't want me by then....

I think he's going to have mom whether he wants her or not. I think somebody else is waiting for an excuse to go on the 'big kid' rides.
