We started practicing weekend trips relatively recently. For the most part, this is my initiative, but a great mood and a sea of positive emotions we get everything. Last weekend we went to the dolphinarium.
I will say, looking ahead, that I was most happy about the trip: the children had not yet had time to feel the whole scale, and the homebody husband agreed to the scam only out of love for his wife and children. The fact is that on that morning there was a little nasty rain and to go to another city 100 km from the house seemed unattractive and unpromising.
But my desire had tremendous power, as the saying goes, that it was snowing, that I was hot, that it was pouring rain when my family was with me.
Donetsk, the city in which the dolphinarium is located, greeted us with clear sunny weather, which instantly raised the spirits of everyone. There was still an hour before the performance, so after walking through the beautiful park, we wandered into the playground. Our local playground cannot be compared with this one, which looks like a huge children’s kingdom with different houses, slides, swings, carousels. By that time my husband had to solve his questions about work and I was left alone with the kids.
What if children want to play in different parts of the site at different attractions, and even in an unfamiliar place? It is very simple: explain to the elder that the place is new, so that he, if he does not see his mother, did not run anywhere, but stood in place and loudly called his mother by name. This is voiced Mama Lena. sounded about 15 times, but the baby was not afraid of a large number of people and always knew that mother was there. I, however, walked like I was attached to the younger one, who was not just awkward, but also all hinged. But now the time has come for the presentation and we went to the dolphinarium.
Barely logged in, Junior, seeing the pool, commanded: Mom, go swimming. Oh, this childish spontaneity. Next began the presentation. The first were fur seals. The double feeling from what he saw did not leave during the whole performance. Such intelligent and beautiful animals, but how are they cramped in captivity.
And then my youngest, bored. He was no longer interested in looking at the cats, and the time for sleep was approaching, so he took my hand and said: Let’s go home.
True, dolphins who spoke were able to distract a little nechuhu.
Unforgettable, enchanting show with jumping dolphins, did not leave anyone indifferent. The eyes of the children were burning, as they say, with lights, a smile and delight did not leave their faces.
The day, filled with emotions and impressions, tired the sons so much that on the way home the crumbs fell asleep.
I made a conclusion for myself that dolphinarium and similar performances are more suitable for children after 3 years, and for a child, especially one as active and restless as my younger one, it is still early. However, the older one asks every day: Mom, when are we going to look at the fish? Our next trip is the aquarium.
