Hana Hou*: Sea World Trip 2

*Hana Hou - Do it again!

Having had so much fun at Sea World last Friday, I let the girls talk me in to taking them again yesterday. Now remember, San Antonio is a 4.5 hour drive from here - each way. So this is not a trivial undertaking.

But it's Christmas Break, and although I have a lot of work to get done during my time off, I've really just been in the mood to play.

It was fun going again. The girls rode the little roller coaster, and I talked them into riding the Steel Eel with me.

Actually, I didn't talk them into it so much as I bribed them with ice cream. Anna didn't die, and Alyssa buried her head in her arms, which were wrapped around the safety bar. I wasn't able to talk them into a second ride. It will be interesting to see what I have to do to get them back on during subsequent trips.

Today we are undecorating. Decorating for Christmas feels like getting all dressed up for a fancy event, and undecorating feels like finally changing out of formal clothes and into something a little more comfortable. Ahhhh.

what a good dad you are--it's always fun to go a second time and know what you like :-)

How fun to go twice. I agree with Josi - you are a good dad!

And I also agree with you on that whole relaxing-taking-down-the-tree thing. So true, so true ...
