The Many Adventures of Keira!

This is our page to document our family's adoption journey- starting from when we first started planning for our little one, to when we brought her home. We're also going to keep this updated with all of the things that Keira has been up to since she's been home with us here in the U.S!

Belugas and Teletubbies

We weren't able to catch up with Rod, Dawn and Chloe at Sea World yesterday, so we decided to try to make the trek with Auntie Lorraine (by the way....he took BEAUTIFUL pictures of Sea World on the Cuizon Family Blog @ today. It started out as a beautiful day. Sunny with just enough breeze to make it perfect! We headed down and got to see my favorite thing- Wild Arctic. I just LOVE the Beluga Whales! I also love the Dolphins...well, I love them all. Dan and I last year did the Interactive Dolphin Program where you get to get in the water with the dolphins and play with them. It was definitely a wonderful memory that I have that I would love to do with Keira one day when she is old enough. The Beluga Whales always look like they are smiling. After being there for an hour or so, it suddenly got EXTREMELY cold and overcast! I don't know WHAT happened! We ended up buying a little blanket for Keira since it was so cold. There was a toddler play area in Shamu's Happy Harbor, so Dan tried to see how she would like it. She really is weirded out by sand under her feet! We're going to have to get her used to it considering that she lives very close to beaches! Auntie Lorraine took us for some Greek food for lunch before we headed home. Keira got only a short late nap, so we're not sure how she will be tonight. I turned on an episode of the Teletubbies for her. Dan is VERY disturbed by the fact that he can actually understand what the Teletubbies are saying now after watching a few episodes. He was asking me...."Can YOU understand them too???" I should have lied and said No, huh? He would think he was losing his mind! That would have been FUN! I know.....Bad wife... :) Ok...Auntie Lorraine took a couple of pictures at Sea World. Keira is definitely my daughter as she is also in love with the Beluga Whales. The other picture is of her touching the ice wall as well as pictures of her trying to give one of her toys to Jackson. I think that Jackson would have preferred that she give him a steak instead. I'm just happy that she didn't give him any raisins!

Wild Arctic is so cool! Was the Peguin Encounter open today? It was closed on Friday. I'm glad you guys had fun! :)

Sharon - Rod had a great idea that we all should go to catch up. I am gone for the next two weekends due to work travel but I will let you know as soon as I am back. As a matter of fact, why don't we all dress up like we did in the 80s and meet at Sea World. It will be fun... :-)

That would be fun! I'm sure that I could invest in a can of Aquanet by then and rat my hair out into a tall wall on the top of my head by then! I just may still have a pair of leg warmers too :)
No, the Penguins were still closed which was a total bummer!
