Halloween Mini Vacation Part Three

From there it was on to the penguins and then the sharks. The manatees exhibit was closed but the boys wanted a picture with the sculpted manatees in the landscape. Then we checked out the alligators who were all piled up trying to stay warm, before visiting the stingrays.

Some more of the landscape.

Peaceful and relaxed at the Shamu show!

After the Shamu show, the boys changed into their costumes because it was time for some trick or treating.

There were 13 trick or treating stations total. Each one was sponsored by a different company and the boys were given handfuls of a specific candy at each one - Twizzlers, Tootsie Rolls, Airheads, and more and even some mini-bananas from Chiquita! They really raked it in.

Count von Count's Countdown to Halloween Show was in the Pets Ahoy theater in the afternoon. It was different than last year's show and very good!

Finally we finished up the afternoon in Shamu's Happy Harbor. The boys played on the nets and then took in a few rides of their choice - Carousel, Flyin Fiddler and Swishie Fishies (each in their own compartment).

We left the park about 3:30pm and headed home. Wesley crashed out in the car and slept the whole way home. We got back and had dinner and unpacked. All in all, it was a very nice time away together as a family.
