Well, after waiting all this time, we finally went to a Disney Park. My brother wanted to go to the Animal Kingdom because they have a safari that his youth pastor said was awesome. I wanted to go last year so it was all good. My Mom was going to get us a park hopper for 4 days with a 5th day free but we only had 4 days left before we left, it was $60 more than the two day hopper, AND we would be too tired from the first few days to take advantage of the other days. From past experience, it's best to space it out by visiting a park every other day so you can recover between visits. Therefore, we would go to Animal Kingdom today and parents would go to Holyland USA while the whole family would go to Epcot on Thursday since we didn't get to see everything last time and Mom wanted to eat at the French restaurant.
The other show of note was the bird show where the actors took predictable lines and made them funny, even taking a few jabs at the idea of visiting a theme park. I loved it when the baby vulture came out and the guy said "If you see this guy flying above you, remember...LOOK ALIVE, PEOPLE....LOOK ALIVE!" *giggles* And when a bird returned some money to a visitor, the guy remarked "Well, that's a first...actually getting money back at a theme park." Best.show.ever! And the birds were cute too :) I also saw some forest creatures at the Pocahontas show that were adorable like the chubby raccoon, tiny mice, and waddling porcupine! Well, after that we decided to get breakfast and I had a nice big cinnamon bun while my brother chose a cheese danish.
We then decided to catch a train up to the animal preservation site where I saw the cutest bunny! It reminded me of the one I had in Germany with floppy ears...this one had ears that stood straight up. I got to pet him and take a picture. Wish I could upload it to this journal! We headed back to the safari area so I could buy a keychain with Stitch in a safari hat (I LOVE Stitch). What was really funny was that work called me on my cellphone (which is usually never on but is on now so parents could contact us) and were looking for some official checks. I didn't handle them that night so had no idea but was worried about them for a little while because I might have handled them and forgotten about it. Nothing I could do anyways while down here in Florida.
So that was pretty much what we did today. Oh that and watch two hours of 24 Season Five!
Before I leave you, here is another great love poem to think on...
Now this poem is kind of strange because it doesn't allow the spouse to show their true feelings. I like how it talks about gently knocking at each other's hearts but the idea of hiding things from the one you love is never a good idea. Best to get it out in the open so you can both deal with it then keep it from them until it finally comes to a head. That's just my take on it of course :)
Come on...pick up, Aaron...I don't know how much longer I can be out here before I'm discovered...
