The singer, 51, and her sons, 5½-year-old Wyatt and 2½-year-old Levi, got up close and personal with a California sea lion on Sunday at Florida's SeaWorld Orlando. And it seems like the affection is mutual: While the critter, named Clyde, managed to put a big smile on Crow's face, he also stood up in his tank to get a good look at the star.
Crow was on hand to perform at the park's Bands, Brew & BBQ Festival later that day – but snuck in some time before her concert to introduce the boys to SeaWorld's famed locals.
