March 25th, under Inbox Wonders. I want to take you all back to a little adventure that I was blessed with way, way, way back in November of So ya, a LONG time ago. But you see, in my defense…. That November I received an invitation to spend the night, slumber party style, with a group of women that at the time were all strangers. The only thing we all had in common was that we were moms and for some reason we caught the attention of SeaWorld San Anton i o and the wonderful founders of The Motherhood CooperMunroe and EmilyMcKhann to take a walk on the Wildside!
This was such a surprise, and talk about scary…spending the night with strangers…snoring…snorting…and all the other icky things people do…or I might do…while sleeping. But as it turned out sleep was the last thing that occurred that night. We met armed with only a guest list full of names and twitter handles, and many questions and doubts about how the night would go.
And then we started talking…and laughing…and finding in each other many, many things in common. From parenthood, husbands, and blogging aka. The only three things that we needed in life up to that point had brought us together. As we entered the park it was decided that from that point on we were the wildside Hotties! That night we started our after hours tour in the Coral Reef where I made a big hit with my Twitter post wondering if we were having sushi for dinner.
I was starting to get that gut wrenching feeling that I just burst my bubble. They understood the humor behind what I was saying!! After seeing some of the most wonderful displays of aquatic life and some really sharp teeth on the sharks we continued our after hours SeaWorld tour. Apparently she is the matriarch of the group and saw some familiar friends in all of us mothers because she happily posed for pictures right up by the glass and happily interacted with us.
She seemed genuinely interested in her late night visitors. Such a treat and she was such a sweet lady. That night we walked and walked and then finely were fed a wonderful meal by one of SeaWorlds world class chefs before we were off to the Penguin Encounter where, SQUEEEE, we would be spending the night. When I say I love penguins it is not a joke. It is a fact and, as any member of my family can attest to, if you buy me penguin stuff you will forever have me as a fan.
Just like others who deck their houses out in chickens or pictures of cats… I am a penguin kind of gal. So to spend the night that close to all the lovable little gentlemen was the treat of treats and I can honestly say I can die happy because of it. And spend the night we did…sleep we did not. We talked, we tweeted, we giggled, we shared stories, and we did eventually attempt to bunk down. However it was really hard to sleep with the overwhelming smell of fish.
Penguins may be adorable but the Penguin Encounter does have a dis-stink-tive odor of fish. I think… It was still dark out when I went to brush the fish smell off my teeth. We also shared our breakfast with a rambunctious group of boy scouts who apparently were in the park over night like we were. And their loud, perky boyish screaming finally broke through the haze and woke us up. After our nice breakfast we had our last adventure, feeding the dolphins.
As we walked up to the pool they were jumping, and playing, and talking, and splashing, trying to get a good look at us just like we were getting a good look at them. And then we fed them their breakfasts while they flipped upside down for us to pet their soft bellies. And as we all left the park, strangers the day before but now friends and companions, we walked away with memories none of us will never forget.
Since that day many have moved on but a core group of us have become what is known as the original Wildside bloggers and we now play a very special roll by sharing our experiences with SeaWorld San Antonio. So stay tuned, this was only part 1! And then we became friends. Photo taken and shared by the lovely Emily from The Motherhood.
This year they are making it easier on the budget to go and enjoy the park! Just pay for a day and enjoy the park all season long! I do not work for Sea World. All that has been provided to me by Sea World San Antonio has been only a gift because they really are that awesome! I was never asked to write about considering it took me a year and a half to get around to this post or advertise for them and I am not being paid for it.
If you have any other questions about this please feel free to ask me or simply read my disclosure policy. March 17th, under Sea World San Antonio. Home Disclosure Policy Who am I? Because Kids Are Expensive! Please grab my BUTTon! And I still have zero free time…. We bought a new house which is still covered in unpacked boxes. And besides, cardboard is in fashion…. I joined a new club, one that is going to be a shock to many of you in the mommy blog world and may make many of my readers jump ship because of different beliefs and that saddens me but I respect that too and without knowing how it really happened found myself highly involved… and now that club is going national.
