We took our little baby beluga to Sea World in San Diego! We are in town for Paul's twin brothers wedding. We wanted to take advantage of the opportunity to take our little boy to Sea World. He loved it! We arrived at the park and ran right to the orca show. The second a killer whale came out from "back stage" Owen was flailing his arms wildly, pointing and yelling, as if trying to talk to his new whale friend. The whale would jump out of the water and Owen would look with big eyes. Every time the whale dove down under the water Owen would cry because he didn't want him to go away. It was so cute to watch him!
As we wandered around the park Owen had big eyes and spent most of the day pointing and loudly talking to the animals. He loved the killer whales, sea turtles and of course the beluga whales. One of the lullaby's I sing to him most often is "baby beluga in the deep blue sea". It was special sitting on the side of the beluga tank with him on my lap and watching the belugas swim around.
The one animal that Owen did not like was the walrus. As you can see in one of the picture above Owen was right up against the glass when the walrus spit out his food and then munched it back up. Owen was terrified of the big fat walrus from that point on. Pesky walrus.
We had a wonderful day making memories as a family! We are here in San Diego several more days and then the wedding is on Sunday afternoon.
PS I am so excited to post about Owen's 1st birthday party! We left town to drive down right after his party and I have not had much time to go through all of the pictures. There are a lot of pictures and it is so hard to choose! I may have to do several posts. :)
