Hey there everyone, CancerGirl and SuperHubby went to Aquatica Orlando this past week for CancerGirls Birthday. SH and CG bought a disposable underwater camera, so she could take lots of pictures of their trip in the water and such. SD here: I didn't get to go, if you notice NONE of the pictures she posts will have me in them, I'm just sayin..... We left later then we had meant to leave, but still got there well within the first hour of them being open. It was also nice not having to stand in line outside waiting for them to open the gates also. The first slide we went on is called Lagerhead Lane. This is the slower of the 2 lazy river type rides in the park. Here is a picture of SuperHubby almost falling out of his tube. As you can see, although he was having trouble staying in his tube, he still looked to be having fun. It is definitely the water that makes people HAPPY!!!! Here he is again in his tube, much happier as you can see. I don't know what made him happier, being in the water and the sun, or seeing how happy I was to be there. I don't think I laughed so much in a long time. It was wonderful for both of us. It is important that as SuperCareGivers, your mental and physical health is looked after also. So often everyone is worried about the CancerSuperHero (not like it is necessary, I mean we are after all SUPER
HEROES!!!) but still
they worry. It is good to have days like this where there is plenty of smiles. One of CancerGirls favorite things to do with the camera was take pictures of the the slides, the slides at Aquatica are awesome, and I was fortunate enough to get some pretty cool pictures of the inside of them. Here is a picture or two to check out.
As you can see, the sun was shining the whole day, so it made the entire experience that much better.
One of CancerGirls Favorite things about the entire day were the Dolphins that they have at Aquatica. The dolphins they have there are called Commerson's dolphins. They are a smaller sized dolphin then you normally think of when you think of a dolphin. They are also a different color then the gray that is normally associated with dolphins. I took a few pictures of the dolphins, who LOVE to swim and play and frolic with each other.
My favorite thing about the Commerson's dolphins was how agile they were while swimming in their habitat. There were large rock pillars and they easily and nimbly dodged in and out of the pillars like they were invisible.
At the end of the day, my favorite part had to be the time that was spent with SuperHubby. So often with all the electronics that we both have, we don't often have much time that we are together without the phone, or the TV or the computers (or IPads ) distracting both of us. This day was completely about him and I. We had a great time and can't wait to return later this week What's this?? You are going out without me AGAIN???? SideKicks get no respect in this industry anymore!!!
