Disney..only 2 1/2 weeks away!

A little over 2 1/2 weeks from now and we will be at Disney World. And we are getting Super Excited over here!! As part of the countdown, here are some highlights from our trip in 2006.
Let's head on over to our favorite park of the trip, Animal Kingdom. We thought this was going to be a "disney-fied" zoo, but it is so much more than that! We enjoyed the way guests interact with the animals in the park, though tours on jeep to habitat walks, to amazing animal shows. And of course, there are a few great rides sprinkled in there too.

The first thing you see when you enter the park is the Tree of Life. It is amazing- these pictures don't do it justice!

We could stare at this tree for hours and find all kinds of new animals. 20 artists carved into the trunk, branches, and roots over 320 animals.

Sis's jaws are just about as big...

We loved the street entertainment, where I just had to prove to my kids how good of a hula-hooper I was...

We found that just because we were at the "happiest place on Earth" didn't mean you were always happy....

Our favorite ride at Animal Kingdom was the Kilimanjaro Safaris, where we saw tons of amazing wildlife straight out of Africa.

One of our favorite shows, Birds of Prey, featured several amazing birds.

What other park can you find Pocahontas?

It's a short week here with only 2 days of school and then we are out for Thanksgiving break!!

Oh, I just LOVE Disney! We were there in Feb. One of my favorite rides was Dinosaur in Animal Kingdom! There are a lot of characters in that park that you don't get to see anywhere else. Have fun!

I am so excited for you. The Disney trip looks like a blast. We can't wait to take the kids when they are a little older. I can't wait to see your photos from the trip.
We also have a short week here is Missouri. I am hoping to use this week to take down all my fall decor and put up all the Christmas decor.
Have a great day!
