Welcome to Sea World

First of all, sorry for the horrible looking posts (with tons of space between everything). It doesn't look like that when I'm writing it. Lance says it's because blogger has crappy html. I don't see anyone else's blogs looking like this so I don't know why mine is having such a problem. Anyway, Monday morning, we went to Sea World. Here's Skye getting a glimpse of her first animals... the beluga whales (Lance's favorite)!
We all enjoyed watching the belugas.
The best part was the baby! Yep, this mother had a baby. The baby is gray.
It stayed pretty close to its mom most of the time.

Also in the polar region were the polar bears!

We saw this one get a drink and even swat at a fish!

In a polar bear cave. They had loud growling noises in there that scared Skye. She didn't want to go in at first, but Lance finally coaxed her in for a picture. You can kind of see how she's covering her ears!

This was looking at the belugas from underneath the water.

We thought it was funny that they spent most of their time swimming upside down!

The baby beluga!

As much fun as the whales and bears were, Skye's first big reaction came from seeing the walrus. Unfortunately, I couldn't get a good picture of it, but as soon as she saw how big it was she loudly exclaimed, "Whoa!" Skye was the one who chose to go to Sea World. I asked her last fall if she wanted to go to Sea World or Disneyland and she said Sea World. I'm glad that's where we went. It was a lot of fun. Stay tuned for more!

I think Sea World was a good choice. The Belugas are awesome creatures. I used to prefer swimming upside down, too! (Back stroke) :-)
