Last year Morgan, Blake and I went and I was MISERABLE!! I should also mention that it was in the high 90's and I was pregnant. Not a good combo! So, this year we decided to give it another try and to take Sam with us. We went pretty early as to avoid the larger crowd and also to try and beat the heat. It was really humid but bearable. I will go ahead and say that this year was much better.
First thing we did was warn Sam that if she misbehaved she would go straight to the stocks.
Next, we went to the Birds of Prey show. I always love these types of shows and watching the beautiful birds. We were fine most of the time but the poor guy running the show kept asking us to keep our "small animal" very still so that the birds wouldn't try to attack her. This was NOT working for poor Samantha but she did pretty well. We finally found one way that she was happy and relatively still:
Next was the amazing turtle races. We watched these last year as well and the guy that does them is hillarious! We even spotted a pirate in the audience :-)
