Report from Rockdale, Day 2

From Rockdale Apri...
Day 2 was as much fun as the first. The boys didn't sleep as well last night, so lunch and nap time came a little early. But we had a great time playing outside, catching bugs, and planting watermelon seeds.

The return trip to Houston was uneventful with just one pit stop in Brenham. Mommy was waiting to greet the boys and it was off to bed - safe, sound, and tired...but happy.

Report from Rockdale, Day 1

We arrived Friday evening safe and sound and immediately got to work. Harvey and Jane had hotdogs and a roast at the ready, and the boys jumped right into the rocks, tractors, and fishing gear.

The boys slept until 7:30am on Saturday and they hit the floor running. We fed the cows, went fishing (didn't catch a thing), watched Doss play tee-ball, napped, more tee-ball (at home), caught some butterflies, played in the dirt, and ended the day with a picnic outside and a bubble bath inside.

Heading Home

Today didn't work out exactly as we'd liked. We started out at the Sea Lion Show, which was funny enough (especially since the sea lions were not cooperating). After the show we fed them, and then the birds.

Jane would be so proud. Charles charged in and made sure that every bird got a little of the food. Thomas on the hand was afraid of the noise. Go figure.

And then the rain came. We spent the next several hours freezing in the pool as the boys splashed and played. One more trip through the penguin house (because we just weren't quite cold enough) and it was back to the car for the long ride home. Thomas didn't make it far beyond the parking lot, but we've just passed Seguin and Charles is still going strong.

Wow! What a day!

The first day is over and what a great day it was.

Happy Dolphin

We pretty much hit every attraction at Sea World except for the Sea Lions Show and the water park - we're tackling those tomorrow before we head home.

After Dinner

We ended the day by having dinner with Shamu. The boys were really tired and goofy, but no meltdowns. Thomas almost didn't make it back to the hotel awake, but we're back safe and sound and it took them about 5 minutes to fall asleep.

More pictures on Flickr and a few videos on Pickle.

Off to see Shamu

Well, we're off. This should be a fun weekend of "firsts" - first hotel stay, first whale, first indoor pool, first water park. Hopefully the weather will cooperate. :)

As you might guess, it should be pretty week documented. There's a new Pickle channel where I'll post the photos and videos as we go, and a new Flickr set in case you care but don't want to download the Flash.

Goodnight Call

I missed the call from home last night to say goodnight... I called right back, but the original voicemail was just too cute!

Really South of The Border

We ended our South American Adventure in Rio De Janiero, taking the tram to Sugarloaf Mountain. We also had a great day near Ushuaia, at the edge of Argentina before rounding Cape Horn (in rougher weather).
