Wow, it seems I have had many absences from my blog lately. It's just work/life keeping me busy. Plus, we just got back from Florida. We spent 10 days at Disney World, and a quick trip to Islands of Adventure, to go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Here are the highlights of our trip. I still have to get them onto Flickr.
Animal Kingdom, on our way to ride Expedition Everest. Quinn is just tall enough this year to ride! He loved it!
We did this Wild Africa Trek at Animal Kingdom, on Dec. 31. It was sooooo cool. We all got to wear those funky vests!
The trek allowed us to get closer to hippos and crocodiles. I was not standing right next to this hippo. I was on a slight overhang, looking over them. I zoomed with my camera.
This is where we stood, harnessed in. If you look to Quinn's right, you can just see the hippos. You can also see the regular safari tour vehicle, to Quinn's left.
One of the bridges went right over the crocodiles. There's something like 26 of them down there! All boys. Again, we were up above them a little, and harnessed in.
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Riley and I have been reading the Harry Potter books-finally. I bought them a long time ago, thinking Riley would like to read them. He never showed any interest, but then I decided that I would read them. My nieces love them, and between them and me reading them, Riley has started reading them! He's reading book 5 and I am reading book 4. Since we were going to be in Florida, we decided to visit the Harry Potter world. It was pretty cool. VERY crowded, but cool. Oh and it was freezing the day we went. I mean really really cold!
You felt like you were in the book or movies, walking through Hogsmeade. Really really cool.
Quinn on Expedition Everest. He loved the ride. It really is a great ride-easily my favorite Disney ride. It's so good!
Kevin, Stitch and the boys at Magic Kingdom.
We had a really great time. We are all still quite exhausted and still trying to get back into our time zone. I am looking forward to the weekend, where I hope to sleep!
I will try to be back tomorrow with other things that have gone on around here.
