I don't know if y'all still care, but I couldn't leave this post out since I promised weeks ago when I got back on the bloggy kick.
The only reason I still want to tell you about a short, crazy vacation we took three months ago is that Andrew really surprised us.
About 2pm, when we thought God was flooding the earth again, or atleast San Antonio, we decided we'd seen everything and were thinking about hitting the road. As we headed back to the front gates we noticed that the clouds were disappearing and the bright, beautiful blue sky was making an appearance.
So we decided to stay at the park long enough to see if we could catch the last scheduled dolphin show. We had about 45 minutes to kill, so we headed to the area of the park with playground/sandbox/spraypark.
As we got there, Andrew noticed that there was a mini-rollercoaster shaped like Shamu. We had seen it earlier, but didn't say anything about it because we were sure Andrew would not want to ride it. He is, above all, our cautious child.
But, he insisted he wanted to ride the rollercoaster. So Clark took him in the line while Corinne and I staked out a spot to watch and record Andrew's inevitable retreat from the ride once he got to the front.
And much to our surprise, he rode it! Not just once with Clark, but again with me!
So after this excitement we headed to the last show, which could have used more dolphins and less goofy cirque du soleil actors, in my opinion.
So, to sum up: a crazy vacation with great memories. Corinne and Andrew still talk it about and both of them sleep with their whale stuffed animals we bought. I definitely don't regret this trip. :)
