This is a continuation post of our Niagara Falls vacation. I've been so busy lately that this is the first time I got to sit and relax at home. And now I can't even just sit around because I'm always used to doing something. So, I thought it'll be a good use of my time to finish this post while I relax before the Thanksgiving festivities (Thank God I'm not cooking!).

We got to Marineland after having a great breakfast buffet at the Hilton where we stayed at. The weather was cloudy and it looked like it was going to pour. But we didn't care since we were dressed for it. Nothing going to stop us from enjoying our trip!

First off, we went to view the white beluga whales in the underground viewing area.

These two kept showing off!

My DD got overexcited running around the place so I thought her cute bear harness will help control. She was not to happy about it.

This whale was so playful that I couldn't get a good pic. 

On our way to another underground viewing of the whales, we saw a few rides. I was so surprised that my DD wanted to ride one so badly that she begged by jumping up and down excitedly! 

She rode this Octopus ride with her Daddy. The ride operator was nice enough not to make the ride go to high so my DD. She had a hoot! 

Then we saw a few more whales...

Then we were off to see the shows!!!
The Killer whale show was up first...

My DD got a good spot sitting over her Daddy's shoulders.

We got splashed a few times...

She didn't mind, she was too zoned in!

At the end, the big guy gave us one more good splash then stuck his tongue out at us!

Next, the dolphin and sea lion show is up!

We got a great seat...

These animals did so many tricks that entertained everyone and kept DD in clapping mode :)

We had some lunch afterwards. 

We sat on a table while my hubby got our food. And of course soon after this pic was taken, my DD fell off her chair! She cried a bit but no bumps or bruises thank God. Man, she is so squirmy and active that just taking care of her is workout in itself.

After we finished gobbling up our lunch we walked around and found more rides.

She rode this boat ride with me.

And she got to ride with both of us in the mini ferris wheel!

We headed to the deer park next...

There were lots of Bambi's here!

But my DD was just happy looking at them. Which I didn't mind considering germs and all!

Then we went to see a few bears...

Here's a shot of my hubby and I...

And my hubby being silly...

My DD and hubby went by the pond and fed some catfish...

But those pesky seagulls kept stealing their food!!! 

My DD had a blast whacking a mole at the arcade... then she went on this ride!

With all the fun things we did we had to stop by the gift shop to get a souvenir.

My DD took her time picking out which one of the blow up whale or dolphin she wanted.

Well she decided she wanted the dolphin... and another soft plushy one too!!! Oh well, we couldn't say no to our little girl seeing how excited she was.

So that was our Marineland adventure! My DD had a blast and it was awesome that there were only a few people there because we got to enjoy the park (almost) to ourselves! 

My DD took a big snooze in the car while we headed over to the outlet shopping mall. I wouldn't miss that at all since we were already in the area!

During that vacation, we had one more cool adventure... Ontario Science Centre!!!

Stay tuned for that post...

In the meantime... hope that all of you Canadians have a great Thanksgiving dinner! 
And the rest of you, have a great week!!!
