A holiday wish: Getting splashed by Shamu

J's wish this holiday was to get soaked by Shamu. Her wish was granted.
 
We visited SeaWorld Orlando not really knowing what to expect after Disney. We were pleasantly surprised. The parks were quiet and clean and the animals were impressive. I am not going to go into the documentary bad naming SeaWorld, I think that has already done its damage, and I saw nothing that should be bad mouthed to be honest. Yes, the animals should be in the wild, but seriously now let loose? I'm not so sure. They seem happy and if an animal doesn't want to do something, they don't force. (An example was with the Dolphins, needing rope as reins put around the nose, one dolphin shook its head to refuse and the rope was thrown backwards and something else was done instead).
Instead I am going to capture the memories we experienced.

Our Florida holiday - a quick intro...

We have just got back from the very hot and sunny Florida. We went away for two weeks with Daddy M's parents again just like two years ago, but did things differently this year. We learnt from what went well and what didn't with three generations under one roof from our holiday together two years ago. The main thing was that second car... its a must so we can do different things and get our own space. As much as I love them, its great to get out and about just the four of us too, for example Disney World.

Our magical Elf door!

Halloween is officially over so that means I can now talk about Christmas without being told to shut up! Yeay! I love Christmas and I am always thinking of different ways to make it magical for the girls. This years plans involve a door. A very special door indeed....

Instant Flower Press by Interplay

S loves picking flowers. Any little walk she does or play in the garden involves picking flowers. They soon die and need to go in the bin. When I got the chance to review the Instant Flower Press by Interplay I thought it was a great idea so we can keep the little tokens she gifts us.
