The One with Another Bachelorette Party
Over Labor Day weekend, I went to another bachelorette party for a friend. We went to San Antonio, and the whole weekend was planned by her sister and was a total surprise to her. First, we went to Sea World. I have not been there since the 5th grade, and I had so much fun! We rode all the roller coasters several times and went to the Shamu and Viva shows. All the bridesmaids had bought Sara a Beluga interaction that we all got to watch. First, they take everyone behind the scenes of Viva and show you a tape about Beluga whales. Then, the trainers show you how they train the whales. It is all done by positive reinforcement, and it takes 3-4 years to get them show ready. I found all of this really fascinating and was ready to change careers until I found out they start at $7.50 an hour. That's typical for the science field unfortunately. The Beluga experience was alot of fun, and I highly recommend it if you go to Sea World. It was so amazing to be so close to such amazing creatures.
Next, we all went to our hotel to get ready for the evening. We had a really great dinner at Italia on the riverwalk. One of the waiters kept coming by and singing to us. The we went to Howl at the Moon which is a piano bar. I love piano bars! We have one in Austin called Pete's, and even though they all play the same songs, I can't get enough. My friend Debs, who doesn't drink often was very tipsy and very entertaining! We all had a great time!
