Hello All!

We had a great weekend and decided to go to Sea World again! We went to different shows and went on different rides this time. Chloe was very scared after getting off the "Journey through Atlantis" ride. It was fine till it went down this huge drop (if you don't know what it's like it's similar to a log ride in the water). Not only one drop, but there were two. Not having been on it before I didn't know what to expect to tell her either. She wasn't too happy with Mommy since I was the one sitting next to her screaming...ha!
We got to see the Budweiser Clydesdale's pulling the big truck with the Dalmatian dog on top riding through the park. It was quite a scene watching them dress up the horses in all that gold&black they also had braids, roses and bows in their manes and tails. Chloe thought they must all be girls.
We saw this show called "Pets Ahoy". We were all amazed! They had dogs, cats, birds, a rat, a pig and a skunk either doing tricks or chasing each other. It was very funny and quite entertaining!
We hope to go later one evening to Sea World and see some evening shows. They are very well put together.

Scott had to head out of town Sunday on business. The kids and I set off to see "Space Chimps" at the theater...that was pretty funny! Today the kids had their physicals and met their new doctor.

In the meantime they've spent time in the pool...

I also started on weeding and trimming the shrubs. There are more than I thought in this yard of ours. I can't finish it in a day or even two. It gets so hot I can only work for a few hours then back inside or take a dip in the pool to cool down.
I found many many many lizards in the bushes. The ladybugs seem to love the hibiscus. The tree frogs like them also and we've found them in the palm trees too. Tree frogs are so cute and in many colors!!! I was unable to get pictures of the frogs this time, but hope to later.

This lizard below was the largest one I've seen in our yard so far. He was shedding his skin...TOO COOL!

Jungle Adventures

While Jamie, Jen and Landon where here they took Chloe to this place called Jungle Adventures. The day they went it rained and they didn't get a chance to do everything while they were there and got us 4 free tickets to use later. We picked a perfect day to go...it was very hot, but no rain!

Welcome To Jungle Adventures

There were quite a few animals to enjoy.

We did think it was odd to see some of these animals in cages. Our tour guide told us all about the animals and we learned a thing a two!

Many of the animals (all of the monkeys, raccoons, some alligators and crocidles, the wolves) they were all someones pet at one time or another. People decided the didn't want them after the cute baby faze was gone and so they ended up here (or other places like this). Once the animals are used to humans ... setting them free into the wild is a bad idea. If the panthers are born in captivity they can not be put into the wild.

There was a replica of a Spanish Fort there...we adults decided to be silly

We got to hold a baby alligator and snake...you can see who the braver people were

Scott played with the monkey. It was quite funny watching the two of them imitate each other.

There was a gator feeding...fun to watch. The guide said the gators there don't jump too high b/c they are lazy and well fed here. In the wild she said they can jump up 5 or 6 feet out of the water.

We took a pontoon boat ride as well. The guide told us there were 200 Gators in the water we were riding in. We saw quite a few and she also pointed out a Gator nest.

We purchased some different foods to feed the animals. They animals are very very well fed.

It was a fun 'Jungle Adventure'!
