The Sea World Trip that Wasn’t

When Drew and I picked Jake up from his last day of school, we had the car packed and ready to go for a road trip!  My friend Jessie moved to San Antonio a couple months ago so we were excited to see their new house and play with Bailey.  I was nervous about making the drive with the kids alone but they exceeded expectations.  They made it about 3 hours before breaking down so I will call that a success.

The only problem was that Thursday morning Drew woke up with a 102 fever.  We gave him some medicine and decided to continue on since Jake was so excited.  That also turned out to be a big mistake!

IMG_4066 Jake and I were excited to see Shamu…you can tell how Drew felt about that.  I ended up standing with him outside the show because his fever spiked and he wouldn’t stop crying.  This is when I called Seth and said “sorry, but we have to leave!”

We had a fun time seeing Jessie and Bailey and are anxious to go back again (with Seth this time) so we can do Sea World right! We miss our friends but are glad they’re only a few hours away!
