Birthday Weekend in Florida!

Sunday, June 7th, was Lily's first birthday and to celebrate Cami thought it would be nice if we spent the weekend together in Orlando! What a great idea! Darryl, Cody, Skye, Ryan and I left Thursday evening and drove to Florida meeting up with Cami, Jacob and Lily just after Midnight. Friday morning we loaded up the car and we were off to
What a blast! We went on very fast and fun rides called The Kraken, The Manta, Journey to Atlantis, and a helicopter ride to the Arctic. We saw animal shows and puppet shows and many other attractions. Actually, we were so busy having fun we forgot about taking pictures, but here are a few I did take.
We saw amazing animal and aquatic exhibits. Here are a couple of pictures of Cami, Jacob and Lily with Penguins and Puffins in the background. ..... a wonderful little creature called a Leafy Sea Dragon....
And of course The Whale show .......
Featuring wonderfully trained people doing tricks on very large mammals (the orcas) that I am sure outsmarted them.... and one very large Orca (killer whale).....

Called SHAMU!!!
We had so much fun it was hard to leave. I can't wait to go back!
