Madagascar's Christmas Vacation. Need I say more? Lukas loooooves the music. And King Julian. He laughs his head off every time. The best performers were out in the water shows today. Probably because of all the "Blackfish" backlash, and because it was Christmas break. Funny that I noticed them really laying on thick their tlc to the animals today. We go a lot. Most people wouldn't notice it, or the fact that the main scary guy acrobats with mohawk heads in the dolphin show have been absent for a few months. Probably on strike. We had fun as a family. Ate lunch next to some sea turtle presentation that some fancy pantz people were paying for but we got to see too. Cha-ching! While Jared finally got to ride the big person Manta roller coaster, Lukas pet real Manta Rays in the big pool. There were a ton, even though they were all elsewhere in the picture. They feel so soft, like petting jello. It was the last trip to Sea World for the year. It was a good run! We may go back next year--- if they give us free passes again!
