Next Year's Calendar is half way finished.

While in Denver we took Declan to the Children's Museum which had an interactive firetruck display.   They also had this computer that taught children that if they want fireman to come to their house, just dial 9-1-1.  Declan is a 9-1-1 natural.

I foresee no problems whatsoever.

Fiesta Texas!

Also in San Antonio, we made a trip to Fiesta Texas, which features WigglesWorld.  Declan loved the Wiggles - it was his go to TV-show for a lonnnng time. I don't know if it was the Wiggles branding or what, but Declan had a fabulous time.

You can't tell, but I am confronting my fear of ferris wheels in this picture.  Also what you can't see, the thing completely malfunctioned and we had to be evacuated.  I. was. terrified.

Thanksgiving in San Antonio

While in San Antonio we headed to SeaWorld for the day.  We took a behind the scenes tour that allowed us to see the park in the morning before it opened.  We got to feed dolphins and seals and have some other animal encounters.   This is definitely the way to see the park- no crowds.

A lizard named Genoble (sp?).

The trainers in the Shamu show don't get in the water with the Orcas anymore.  Guess they rethought that strategy.  Still wearing the whale outfits though.  That might get them in trouble one day.
This was such a fun day, as Declan is *just* getting the idea of exciting plans.  When I told him in the morning we were going to SeaWorld to feed dolphins, he replied "We are having an adventure!"  Several times during the day he would say that "this is so much fun".  That's the first time he's said anything abstract like that.  So I guess we just have to up the excitement ante around here to get that boy talking.
