Annual San Antonio Trip

This past Saturday we headed to San Antonio with Noni for our annual Sea World visit.  Hudson looks forward to this every year and had been counting down the days to see all of his beloved sea animals.  :)
Our first night there, we went to the River Walk for dinner and had yummy Mexican food at Casa Rio.
 After dinner we went on a barge ride.
 Hudson was a picture taking fool on the barge ride...took a TON of pictures on Daddy's phone.
 The next day we tried something different and went to Natural Bridge Caverns.  Yes, we had to take some cheesy pictures on the dinosaur.  :)

 Hudson was a little leery in the was one time when you didn't have to remind him to hold your hand!

 Monday was the day Hudson had been waiting for...Sea World!  We had booked a beluga whale tour, but got a call the day before that it had been cancelled due to a birth.  So, after talking to two different people, they were able to squeeze us in to the dolphin tour.  It was AWESOME!  We got to meet two dolphins, Nacha and Bre.  We pet them, fed them, and even learned some hand signals.  It was a very cool experience!
 Hudson and how it looks like she's smiling!

 Feeding Nacha.
 This was Bre.

 We were all in awe of this at the ski show...not sure what it was called, but this guy was soaring through the air.  Crazy!

 Hudson and Kelly rode this boat ride and Kelly said he did great until the boat went backward for a short time.  Poor kid did NOT like that, so he wasn't very happy at the end of the ride.  See his face.  :(

 Our last show of the day was Azul...Hudson's favorite.  He LOVES the beluga whale!!  Wish they would have brought the baby out, but hopefully we'll get to see it next year.  He posed before the show with his new dolphin, Nacha from Noni.

 Hudson's face when the beluga whale came out.  He STILL says he wants to be a marine biologist one day.  We'll see if his love for these animals continues!

 A few nice, sweaty pics at the end of the day before heading back to the hotel.  :)
SUCH a great trip to San Antonio and Sea World.  Until next year!
