Special Delivery

Baby Shamu has arrived, we have a Circus Vargas winner, another fabulous birthday spot bites the dust, and your mom’s guide is waiting for you. This is one action packed post, so let’s get started.

Valentine’s Day seemed like the perfect day to activate my son’s new Seaworld preschool pass. Our date turned even sweeter when we discovered that we would be among the first Seaworld guests to meet baby Shamu, the killer whale who had been born that very day at 6:33 a.m.

It was incredible to sit in Shamu Stadium and watch the “tiny” 6-7 foot calf swimming along its mom. It surfaced many times, provoking oohs and ahhs from the crowd. It’s a great time to visit Seaworld, and if you have a preschooler, don’t forget to get your pass before the March 31st deadline.

Baby Shamu was the good news of the week. The bad news, for us, was to discover that The Royal Fairytale is closing. We have enjoyed many special times with the owners and staff of this business including Mallory’s 4th birthday, several princess camps, tea parties and pajama jams. Visit them before February 25th for one last tea party with the princesses. Happily, The Royal Fairytale will continue to offer a mobile party service. Stay tuned for details.

Next week Circus Vargas opens its 2013 show to San Diego, and one lucky family wins a 4 pack of tickets. I’m drawing the winner right now and…it is…Melissa Velzis!

Congrats Melissa, you will be sent instructions on how to claim your prize via email.
