I haven't noticed many Sea World trip reports on this forum, so I thought I'd add one. I probably missed it but I'm figuring most people don't make a whole trip of Sea World. There are 3 of us, me (mom), dd (age 8), and ds (nearly 2). We travel as a family whenever a school break and our budget make it possible. I like to take day trips or incorporate learning experiences on vacations because my daughter responds really well to it, in some ways better than she responds in the classroom, but we are working on that. I also have the distinction of being the mom with the most field trip miles in her class. I've only missed one field trip since Kindergarten, so weve spent a lot of time together at educational places. DD always has questions about science and animals and if I don't know, her response is now, "Lets Look it Up, Mom," which along with the fact that my son calls fish (and whales and dolphins); fishies inspired the title of this trip report. And since people are sometimes interested in how I plan trips and travel alone with my children so I thought I'd include some details on that along with some planning details. It wont be a really long trip report because we leave in less than 3 weeks, but I thought Id take a stab at it. Starting in the next post, we'll go with the usual: Who, Why, Where, When, and How.
