Finally it was time for the big event… swimming with the dolphins at Discovery Cove!! :) If you missed part one of our experience at Discovery Cove, be sure to check it out here. For as long as I’ve known him, Kevin has always wanted to swim with dolphins, so I was so, so excited to make this happen for him for our 12th anniversary.

We interacted with three dolphins that day. Our first dolphin was a girl named Cindy. We got to hold onto her fin and go for a ride!

Watch him blush like a school girl when she gives him a kiss, and then he does a little happy dance after he gets to feed her. My heart melted a thousand times over.

Near the end of our dolphin swim experience, the trainer asked if she could have a “volunteer” and then “randomly” selected Kevin. She told him that for the next trick, the dolphin was going to bring him a toy, and that Kevin could take it right out of the dolphin’s mouth.

The dolphin swam right up to Kevin carrying a souvenir buoy that read “Happy Anniversary Kevin!!!

We spent the rest of the afternoon lounging around in our cabana napping and watching the dolphins swim by.
