Celebrating Kaylee's 5th birthday at Sea World

When celebrating my kids birthdays I think, celebrating with family and friends and having a big party where everyone there is celebrate our girl.  The laughter from all the cousins running around having a great time.  The countless hours making all the party décor and planning the food and desserts.  But this year is going to be different for our big girl.  We will not be celebrating with lots of family or hearing the laughter from cousins or spending countless hours making party décor or deciding on food.  I knew when we moved to TX that holidays and birthdays were going to be a lot different then we were use to, but I wanted to make sure to try and make each of those holidays or birthdays special.

So when Kaylee's 5th birthday came faster than I wanted, like it does every year.  I knew we needed to make this birthday special for her.  I felt bad cause she wanted to have this big Frozen party with all her friends (cousins) and family.  I remember the sad look on her face when I told her we couldn't have a birthday like that cause we live here in TX and everyone else lives in CA.

I knew for her birthday I wanted to do something fun as a family.  So to the internet I went to find something fun in our area.  Sea World was the number search and I thought it would be fun since I'd never been to a Sea World and neither had the girls that that would be fun for all of us. 

We celebrated Kaylee's birthday early on May 4th cause daddy was home.  We made the hour drive to Sea World and I will not forget the excited coming from the back seat as the girls saw the whale statue, the huge rollercoasters and the colorful waterpark.  Walking in to the park the girls were jumping up and down with so much excitement, I knew it was going to be a good day and that we were in for a fun day.

We had a great time as a family and Kaylee said she had an awesome birthday!
