Enjoying some ice cream after playing at the hotels playground with Daddy
After we checked out of the hotel, we headed over to Josh's brothers apartment. Joey and Jeni had just moved from Rowlett to SA and they were gracious enough to let us crash with them for a couple of nights during our vacay! We were with them when Josh celebrated his 30th birthday and we had a really nice evening with just the 5 of us. We went out to dinner and then had cake at their apartment. Jeni make a delicious chocolate cake and then she and Joey gave Josh a "30's survival kit" for his birthday filled with a ton of cute gag gifts! They also gave him a bottle of Josh's choice of liquor, Crown Royal, so don't feel too bad for the old man! :)
When Josh took all of his gear off and Korben saw it on the floor, he decided he wanted to wear it!
We spent a day at Sea World and had an absolute blast! This picture was during a 4D pirate movie. The movie was in 3D and it also had water effects. Whenever someone got splashed or wet somehow in the movie, so did the audience!
Sea World had lots of spots to cool off with water throughout the park, but they also had a complete separate water park....not something that was there when I was a kid! Korbens favorite thing was going down this "whales tail" slide tummy first at the toddler pool!
Getting some grub to feed the ducks
Giving the ducks their food
One of the splash pads inside the park. This was not inside the big water park area and was pretty central in the park so we stopped here a couple of times to cool off after the shows!
During certain hours of day, you can buy a tray of fish and feed the dolphins! It was really neat. I wish Korben had been awake for this because I think he would have enjoyed feeding the dolphins but of course it happened while he was taking his nap!
The dolphin show!
The sea lions ended up being one of Korbens favorite "fishies!" Yes, everything at Sea World was considered a fish to Korben! I think he liked this show so much because it had props and an actual story to it! It really was cute!
We rode one single solitary ride inside the main park area at Fiesta Texas. We soon discovered that they had an entire childrens area dedicated to one of Korbens favorite group of people, The Wiggles, and once we got to that area, there was no going back! Poor Josh kind of got the short end of the stick this vacation with a toddler and a pregnant wife who couldn't ride anything fun with him! The Wiggles area put on short shows with a few of the characters from the show. Korben was in heaven getting to see them!
Josh and I got a bit of a kick at the nice dark tan that the Fiesta Texas version of Captain Feathersword acquired! :)
Wags the dog making his appearance
There were Wiggles rides all over the place. Josh and I took turns riding with Korben. This was the Fruit Salad ride.
One of Korbens faves, the Big Red Car!
We spent the last night of our vacation in Austin with my aunt and uncle. Their names are Lori and Steve and Korben calls them Gus and Gal.... GUS for Great Uncle Steve and GAL for Great Aunt Lori. :) I wish I had pictures with them but my camera was dead by that point and I didn't think to get any with my phone! We all had an absolute blast with them! We ended the vacation by a show with the real live Wiggles in Austin! Korben was completely beside himself getting to see them in real life! He just kept saying, "Mommy Daddy, that's Jeff! (his favorite one) That's Anthony! That's Murray! That's Sam!" And of course we walked away with a TON of Wiggles memorabilia! Since my camera was dead and I forgot to pack my charger, I had to result to the use of my phone and a disposable camera for The Wiggles pictures, none of which turned out very well. But at least have some none-the-less. All in all, our first real family vacation was a success!
