Vacation, six weeks later, part two

The second day of our vacation dawned cold. Like in the 40's. And windy. We were at the Disney Studios, and we were so cold we took literally zero pictures. We were too busy shivering, so you'll just have to take my word for the fact that we were there. We saw the "Beauty and the Beast" show, which was both cool and cold, and the highlight of the day was dinner, served in a warm restaurant.

Day three was Animal Kingdom. It is my favorite of all the Disney parks, because it is just so incredibly beautiful. Here are a few highlights from the day:
Here's Alex, being Alex. My mom taught him to cross his eyes, and then cautioned him that his face might freeze that way. Looks like he really doesn't care.

Coolest. Coaster. Ever. This is Expedition Everest, which is both indoors and out. You encounter the fierce Yeti as you attempt to scale the mountain. Alex and I went on it four times, even though it made me sick to my tummy. It's that cool.

The menfolk at our lunch table. We ate at a new restaurant called Yak & Yeti's. It was so good, we ate there for dinner, too.

I have a little crush on Br'er Bear. When I waved at him, he came over an hugged me, right in the middle of the parade!

The Festival of the Lion King show is one of my favorites. I tried to get a good picture of the tumble monkeys, but they move to fast for me! You'll have to see it for yourself.

Wow. Alex got old.

Um, dude, that happens with kids. Remember, you met him almost 11 years ago.

And in case you were wondering, that means you got old, too.

Rae, on the other hand, is Dick Clark. She will never age.

Or at some point in time she'll just turn into Ryan Seacrest.
