Redwoods Vacation Part Five: Ocean World

 The kids had fun "surfing" on this surfboard. Ocean World was OK. The price was expensive and there wasn't much there. The highlights were petting sharks and watching the seal show.
 They kind of had a pirate theme going on. I love the look that Steve is giving him!
 Andrew's face is priceless.
 Andrew liked the tide pool table. He had no fear picking up starfish.
 All the kids except the two little ones petted the sharks. I wouldn't do it. I hate touching fish of any kind. The kids said that their skin felt like sandpaper. The skin is made of tiny little teeth!
 They didn't want you to pet their head, just the bodies. Also, no grabbing and holding on. Duh! LOL!

 Marcus looking the part!
The seals were absolutely adorable. Their trainer was very funny and they did some really cool tricks. He was really good about explaining things to us and we learned a ton about these fascinating creatures. I continue to be amazed at the diversity of God's creations. He is so amazing!!!

The seals were my favorite part of Ocean World. I agree that it was way too expensive for what it was though. Great pics though!

Poor Marcus. We have a few that get sick easily. :( I always feel so bad for them.
Looks like you guys really had a good time!

I absolutely LOVE the surfboard picture!! That's so awesome! We have a pretty good acquarium here in SC. Tom and I were actually able to get married at it :)

I love going to the animal shows at Discovery Kingdom and so do the kids. We always learn a ton of stuff about the animals and get to see them show off a little. But it is a theme park and they are always expensive (we get in free because of a Read to Succeed program at their school).

Such fun pictures. Thanks for sharing them all with us!
