Behind the scenes at SeaWorld San Diego

by

A few weeks ago, my son and I were lucky enough to experience a behind the scenes tour of SeaWorld San Diego. Prior to visiting, I had no idea how much SeaWorld does for its marine life. If you have grown up in San Diego you no doubt have seen members of the SeaWorld team at a beach either helping to rescue an animal or release one back into the ocean. SeaWorld has rescued over 30,000 animals and 17,000 of them have been healthy enough to be released back into the wild – and the numbers keep growing everyday!

The day we visited was a unique one even for the SeaWorld crew because they had recently rescued a pregnant sea lion from the Oceanside Harbor. She gave birth the day before we arrived and we were able to see the one day old seal lion pup up close in the animal hospital. While we were visiting the state of the art facility, we also saw a penguin being checked out, which was particularly special for my son, because penguins are his favorite animal. And what’s even cooler, all of this is done on-site at SeaWorld, and their animals really have the best of everything, including their food. For example, just the penguins themselves eat over 700 pounds of  high quality fish per day!

We were also able to venture behind the scenes of the Penguin Encounter and come face to beak with a penguin. And not only did we get to meet a penguin we found out so much about them. There are five different types of penguins at SeaWorld, and over 400 penguins total. Everyday inside the Penguin exhibit they make fresh snow, that’s over 4,000 pounds of snow a day!

Want to see more of SeaWorld? Check out this FUN video from the Murray family made by WomensForum and SeaWorld San Diego.

Spending the day with my son at SeaWorld San Diego may have been one of the best days we have ever had. For more information or to purchase tickets visit SeaWorld’s website here.

  • To cool off don’t miss the water balloon toss at the Sport Court, or the watersides.
  • My son’s favorite is the s’mores roasting over the open fire, but I assume pretty much any child is the same. Chocolate, graham crackers then add a toasted marshmallow who says no to that?

Are Divorced Dads better dads?

by

With Father’s Day a few days away I wanted to share how much respect I have for the divorced dads of the world. There are so many different types of divorced dads, there are weekend dads, 50/50 dads and even FULL TIME dads!

Let me start by saying I 100% believe my ex husband is now a better father than he ever was while we were married, and he would agree with me. My ex husband has actually thanked me for leaving because his relationship with our child has changed drastically. I will also add that he wasn’t a bad dad, he just left most of the ‘kid stuff’ to me. Divorced dads don’t have someone to help with the ‘kid stuff’ which is different in each situation.

Divorced dads do all the things us moms do, they go to work, do laundry, clean house, bathe children, feed children and everything in between. Single moms have been doing this for years so what is the difference? The main difference is men are just not as good at it, don’t get mad most men just aren’t. Which is why I think divorced dads have a leg up on married dads. Divorced dads do it all and without any help.

It may just be my personal experience but I think the divorced dads of the world are unsung heroes. Whether that means coaching their kid’s soccer team, taking them fishing, being at every school play, or just having the energy at the end of the day to play with them.

Dads from the 1950’s would look at dads today and would probably think the men are foolish. Can you imagine a dad in the 50’s changing a diaper? Doing the laundry AND then making dinner? No way! That simply wouldn’t have happened then, but it happens every single day in houses across America. Dads have really stepped up and I want to say thank you, thank you to the dads who do it all.

Little girls are growing up seeing dads cleaning the house, showing our little girls cleaning isn’t a woman’s job. Gender roles are so different now, especially with divorced dads who do it all. Happy Father’s day to the divorced dads of the world, I see you, good job and keep up the hard work!
