Sea World and the Schwartz

Yesterday Lori and I took the kiddies to Sea world for a fun filled day and had a blast! I have to say, I'm tempted to refer you to Lori's blog for the rest of the details of our adventures - she has such a cute post with lots of pics and details, and lets face it sometimes it's just fun to be lazy. But I won't do that this time.
So anyways, the kids had a great time! Hanging out with the Halveys is always a good time! We hit up the usual Sea World exhibits seeing lots of animals, were nearly attacked by some way overly agressive birds who were apparently starving, and even squeezed in some play time at a kids play area. It was the perfect day to go- maybe a little chilly- but with no crowds at all, so Carson and Savannah could get in some good running around crazy time without getting lost in a crowd. Carson's been asking all morning to go back- when turned down he just keeps begging "I really really really want to and with sabanna too!"- hard to turn down the little guy. Here's some highlights:

Now you may think that sums up our sea world experience, but no...the best is yet too come! Okay maybe not the best!
So we got ready to head out about 1:00 to get the kids home for afternoon naps until we saw a crowd and camera crews waiting at the front. Come to find out Governer Awwnold (yes you have to say it with the accent) is coming in 10 minutes to give San Diego a speech to "pump you up" (say it with the accent again-it really makes it more effective) after the fires and let everyone know we're up and running. Naturally Lori and I totally wanted to check out the terminator- I don't think either one of us has really seen a celebrity before and if you really think about it, I don't honestly know why they're so intriguing, but they are and we wanted to be on the front lines. So the next little while was hilarious!!! We followed Arnold to the Shamu show and Lori even shook his hand- pretty sure she won't be washing that one for a while :) My camera battery died right before and we were really bummed to not get a picture. Don't fear, I think between the 2 of us we have about 20 others. We even took turns trying to take pictures of each other with him in the background. It may appear as though we are slightly obsessed with Awwnold, but seriously it was really funny. The kids were such troopers and sooooo good the whole day :)Here's a few pictures of "the govenator"

This is picture is for Lori! I failed miserably at taking a pic of Lori with Arnold in the background, so I was pleasantly suprised to find this one on my camara- It's Lori and Arnold in a pic together :) Can you find her? Kind of like where's waldo! I was really just taking a picture of the kids clapping during his speech. Too funny!

Ok, that is hilarious! Where's Waldo...I found me! Only because I knew where to look though! Lol.. I kinda want to go to Hollywood with you now. I'm thinkin we should give up our day-jobs and become paparazzis! :) Oh, and I'm glad you included the bird attacks! I think I blocked that out of my memory, it was so terrifying...yet hilarious! Trying to shield my poor child from those dang birds attempting to eat her PB&J! Back off Birds! Unbelievable!

It sounds like you had a great time at Sea World. I have to admit that I probably would have done the same thing you did. Following Arnold around and trying to get a picture with hime in the background. I can just see you in stalker mode. Hahahahaha.
I hope you guys are well.

What a day! Sounds like you guys had a ton of fun! I'm laughing right now just thinking of you guys following around Arnold. Hope you have a great week!

California Blakes said...

That's hilarious! I definitely would have done the same thing. Why are we all so intrigued??
I have no idea how Mark did my blog. He picked the background, if you can believe it!!! He got my approval, of course! I can have him explain it to you sometime. All I know is that it looked really confusing!
Hope to see you soon!
