I'm not sure where Tripp's obsession with spiders or Spider Man has come from - but he pitched a fit about going to Animal Kingdom today. He was determined to go to Spider Kingdom. Go Figure - he's 3.
We saw Nemo - Awesome....wonderful... great. A 11 on a scale of 10. A must see. Think we liked it? It was the Nemo story with HUGE puppets. Even though you saw the people the didn't have an affect on the story. It was a musical, too - which i LOVE!
Rhea got her fill of roller coasters again - did Everest 4 times. They also have a ride called dinosaur - which I hated. Might be bc I hate dinosaurs.
We came back to the room to swim mid day then went back to Spider Kingdom to have a special safari ride after hours. It was great. We saw lion, cheetahs, giraffes, hippos, and gazelles to name a few. Sorry to disappoint anyone - only 350+ pictures today. Most were safari pics.
I told Nutney I'll narrow our pictures to our top 100 or so when we're done.
Tomorrow is Epcot. (the golf ball) I hope Soaring is all it's been built up to be~
I didn't quite give the correct numbers on my pictures... i now have taken a meager 1623 in our 5 days here. I would LOVE to share a few - but it takes FOREVER to upload them with my verizon card. Now granted - most shots are 3-5 of the same shot. when trying to get 4 kids - no make that 5 kids (we include Mack in our kid count) - it takes a few shots.
We had a GREAT day - Rhea, Mack, Tripp and I got up and were at the park when it opened - and headed straight to space mountain. We did just about all we wanted to do in the park before 11:30 a.m. - but somehow didn't make it back until after the fireworks at 9:00 p.m.
Tomorrow is Animal kingdom again with a short trip to the pool in the middle of the day. The weather has been perfect for a dip in the pool.
With ONLY 8 days to play in the parks - who has time to update a silly little blog like this. I promise to put pictures (after 4 days I've taken close to 800) and give you a day by day summary.... just not now. We've gone none stop from Sat, Sunday, Monday and today. My plans are to keep it up - as I can sleep at home.
I think I might get the most pictures taken on a vacation prize. It's insane. Absolutely insane.
I worked down memory lane today as I cleaned up my flower beds. I remember my grandmother's driveway full of day lilies - now lining my retaining wall. I trimmed up the red cannas from my grandmother's house and the orange cannas from my great grandmother's house. I also cleaned up the iris plants from Mack's grandmother's yard.
The other thing I figured out is that I'm not in my twenties as my back is hurting. I'll be reminded often in the next few days of how much I worked. My fingernails are nasty - but what a glorious reason to have dirty nails.
The curtain call for the Lady Raiders was short. We gave it our all - but came up short against Cumberland County. For a team that was picked 4th in the preseason to end up 1st in the district - not half bad.
What a great season with so much we overcame, achieved and learned. All of us.
So - I have turned off the lights in the gym for the last time this season..... and already looking forward to next year!
