On our Gold Coast family trip last October, our first theme park stop was Sea World. I was pretty excited for the girls, but especially for Natalie because it will be her first time to see water creatures up close.
After eating a quick lunch, we headed to the Penguin Encounter. And although I've been to aquariums and seen penguins many times before, I just love watching them like it's the first time I've seen these lovable creatures :)
|Now look who's loving them too! :)|
Caught some penguin lovers exchanging a kiss heehee
|It was a bright and sunny, but not so hot day! Thanks to the cool breeze :)|
|Checking out the dolphins playing in the nursery. |
We wanted to see the dolphin show but missed it.
Maybe next time! I hope hehe
|Had some ice cream while deciding on where to go next.|
My husband wanted to try the rides but it was too windy that day and they would close it from time to time, so he didn't get a chance. Tsk tsk!
|We then watched the Dora's Best Friends Adventure show and it was a hit with the girls!|
|See that smile? haha :)|
|Another show that we all enjoyed was the Sea Lion Fish Detectives show.|
It was very entertaining and both girls loved it too :)
|This sea lion was pretty smart hehe|
|At Shark Bay|
|Loved watching the fish, sharks and sea creatures in an underwater aquarium|
|And finally, we checked out the big polar bear who just woke up from his nap.|
The pre-school ones are the baby polar bears and they were still asleep :)
