Day Two - Animal Kingdom

The second day of our trip was spent at Animal Kingdom.

Here's Reid and Cade waiting for the bus to pick us up at our resort and take us to Animal Kingdom.

Of course Ridge was all smiles and ready to go!

The first ride on our agenda was the Triceratops Spin.

Pop showing out.

Ryan, Cortney, Alvin and Roger a little on edge about riding Expedition Everest!

My favorite part of Animal Kingdom was Kilimanjaro Safari. If you've never done this......well, it's a must. The animals are amazing and so is the scenery.

The giraffes were running across the road in front of the truck.

Isn't the scenery amazing.

This guy was taking it easy....thank goodness. I'm glad he wasn't looking for dinner as we passed.

Festival of the Lion King. We all loved this show, Ridge woke up from his nap during the show and would not stop watching. The music of course was from the Lion King and dancing were terrific!

Reid, Cortney, Ridge, Goofy, Ryan and Cade

I wanted to get a picture of Expedition Everest. It was so strange to see a snow covered mountian in the middle of Palm trees.

There's nothing like Mickey Mouse ears and Mickey Mouse ice cream on a fun filled day!

Of course, there's a parade at most every park at least once a day and we didn't miss a one. Here's Minnie and her polka dotted jeep (wish I had one just like it).

And here's Donald. Cade and Reid really loved the parades!

There's nothing like ending a day at Animal Kingdom with a dip in the pool.....even when your lips are blue and your teeth are chattering from the cold water.

Pop and Cade before lights out. Another big day tomorrow!

FUN Day 2. We got to go in May 1998 - when the park had JUST opened. We loved the safari and the Tree of Life!

You can see the family resemblence in the picture of you and Reid.

Can't wait to hear about Day 3.

That looks like so much fun! The scenery looks awesome. I need to take my husband and MK there. She would love, love, love it!

What a great trip and oh the memories made for those sweet little grands of yours and Alvin's!!

I've been to DisneyWorld in Florida and we had a great time but our kids were grown!
