Happy Thanksgiving

For Thanksgiving this year we had our friends Amy, Jared, and Gavin over and ate ourselves into a coma. I made the turkey and it turned out pretty good. We also had the traditional mashed potatoes, yams, green beans, rolls, stuffing, and pecan pie. It was a great day.

On Friday morning, we packed up the car and headed to San Antonio to go to Sea World. Our passes from earlier in the year are still valid, so we figured we'd use them one more time before we move. Lexi was so excited to see Shamu, but I was definitely a little hesitant to haul my swollen body around a theme park. I was sure to pack a pillow and blanket in case I needed a rest. It was a quick 4 hour drive to San Antonio and then straight into Sea World to see the Sesame Street show and Shamu. We headed back to our hotel and tested out the swimming pool which was freezing. I managed to squeeze myself into a maternity swimsuit, but I'll spare you the photos. The next morning we checked out of the hotel and headed back to Sea World to visit the rest of the animals. Once Lexi had had enough, we loaded back into the car and headed for home. It was a great 2 days and Lexi had a lot of fun. It was also nice to spend some time with Jeff since he's been so busy lately. Enjoy the pictures.

The first thing we had to get in Sea World was cotton candy. I was having a serious craving.

We fed the lorikeets, but they were a little aggressive and bit my hand really hard. I was bleeding all over. My mom thinks they didn't like all the pregnancy hormones I'm emitting.
They loved Jeff so much that they pooped all over him.
Feeding the dolphins was definitely the highlight of the trip, although they kept trying to eat our camera because they thought it was a fish.
Lexi was all tuckered out by late afternoon, so we decided it was time to pack it up and head home.

Here is a video of Lexi watching the Shamu show. Every time he jumps out the water her face lights up. It is adorable.

Here is Lexi feeding the dolphins. It was definitely her favorite part of the day.

Lexi feeding the Lorikeets. She was a little hesitant at first but quickly got the hang of it.
