This guy is kind of camouflaged. It’s hard to see his head looking over the top of the branch. I thought it was pretty cool though.





Of course it’s not a safari without a little bit of giraffe butt.



Ah the elephants. I could’ve gotten some great shots of them…..if I didn’t have people in the row in front of me!





I had taken one right before this next one that would’ve been AWESOME…except the picture has major blockage and came out with a big blur in the middle of it. That blur would be my traveling companion’s camera lens.



How cute is this? They were pushing the baby up.







2 little guys playing.



Another shot that could’ve been awesome….but you can see even with cropping I couldn’t get all of the other person out of it.



The Lioness. This picture actually isn’t too bad looking. If you saw the original you would be amazed I got this. I had Claire’s head and my neighbors head in about 2/3’s of the picture and I cropped it way down and hoped it would be something worth saving, and it actually looks decent.



The ostriches had to check out the truck.



Just lazing around….taking a rest.



What you looking at?







After the safari we ran into a photopass photographer on the exit out. We stopped and got a few fun shots.





We are supposed to be pointing and looking at a wild animal in the distance. Do we look convincing?



And another wild animal.

You got some great safari pictures! I've never seen the elephants so active and playing!
Too bad you got elbows and heads in the way. Kind of like that photo bomb guy that jumped in front of a couple during a proposal in front of the castle. Did you see the pic? I so would have hurt him!

And the giraffes, ours were hiding for the most part. I did catch a funny ostrich picture though.

I did love seeing the elephants at play. it was really neat.
I did not see that picture. I would've been VERY mad!

Thanks. I got that shirt a the Disney store about a year ago.
recently they have been clearing out a lot of shirts there and I got several for the price range of $5 -$9 . Now I need a trip to wear them.

You just really had terrible bus mojo this trip, didn't you?

Fun picture on EE.

I'm sorry about your problems at Tusker House. When we went there last year, they gave us our ticket and didn't even tell us to go see Donald; all they said is you will be called when your table is ready. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy it; we loved it and are going again next month.

Great safari and photopass pictures.

I do so love the Safari, which is why we are doing the Sunrise Safari this Sept. your pictures turned out well considering all the the problems

I don't like strange foods either, DH will eat just about anything. I could find a few things to eat, but it wouldn't be worth it to me.

Great pictures as always.

That TH meal sounds just irritating! I'd be telling them how to do it better, LOL!

Love Claire's chipmunk shirt! Too cute!

All your lion pics are getting me psyched for Saturday. We are taking DM and DS up to Cleveland for the Lion King musical! Hakuna Matata!

If my DH had done that on our anniversary he'd still be out in the barn! Forget the house!

All caught up again, Jen!
(It seems like "caught up" is going to be a theme here )

Let me tell you, even though you had to crop your pics, you got some REALLY great ones!
I have never seen a PP photographer at the end of the safari. How cool!

I didn't know there was actually a PP photographer at the end of the Safari. Very cute shot of the two of you.

Speaking for cute shots - Those pictures of Claire at Tusker House are really adorable. Love her outfit (but which of her outfits don't I love? ).

I hear ya on the wait for TH. It always looks like such a disaster. I've only eaten there once, years ago, and it was the same. They seriously need to fix that.

Seeing your Safari pictures this morning is a great pick-me-up before work. Lovely.

Oh - and I forgot to comment on this last time, but my arm always hurts too after TSM. Maybe we need to start working out our arms before we go there? I'm glad I'm not the only one.

This was the worst trip with the buses for us. Usually we are pretty lucky.
Yeah TH was not a hit with us...but we may forget about that in the future and try it again.

I bet you do. That was a fun spot. Everyone walked by the girl and I saw here and quickly stopped and she took her time with us.

I am so jealous. I would love to do that someday. Is that the one you have to stay a concierge for?

They are lucky I didn't tell them how to do it.
My sister is heading for the zoo in Columbus today. Not quote the same. LOL
And Claire and I are going to the Toledo zoo on Tuesday to see Big Time Rush. I am not so excited, but she is thrilled.
I always tell Skip he is lucky he married me because a lot of wives would've kicked him out the door by now. I grew up with a farmer dad, so I kind of get it....still trying to right the wrongs, but I guess I am used to it. And now I just go if he won't come along.

I know the feeling. I have not been reading much lately. I am trying to get this one done, so I work on it a bit in the morning...do some real work and then walk away from the boards mostly. Just have so much else going on...and at times I get burned out.

I have seen a few pictures from that area before, but I personally have never seen a photographer there so I was exicted to get a few taken.

I don't think they set up there often, but I have seen other pictures there before.

I need to do some heavy weight lifting to get in shape for TSM!
