Kyle's a really good kid; he didn't want to do the whole character thing at first but I convinced him it was mandatory. Meaning I begged him to do it for the family. lol

I think Lexi will be alright, though I have a feeling the first night or two might be a bit of a battle. This time I think we can be a bit more prepared though. We'll have her own pillow and blanky and such since we're driving down and don't need to worry so much about space for packing like we did when we flew...

What is this ride exactly? And way to go, Mom!

Following the guys' memorable ride on EE, we followed the Yeti prints to discover new territory.



And we came upon this!



It was a really chilly morning and the girls were still on the cranky side so once again Jose and Kyle decided to give it a whirl.

And Jose got a little of the ride on video before the shaking made the camera go kaput.

While the guys were on the ride I noticed Goofy and Pluto just around the corner at a picture spot!



I'm not sure what's going on with Tatiana's hair here, but I love it.



Doesn't this just say EVERYTHING! Bless her heart.

How to soothe the savage 3 year old.

So, yeah. Anastasia was REALLY freaked out by the characters. This was her first ever trip where anything that large was waving wildly at her while we photographed the goings on. I'll start saving for her therapy.

I thought, "Oh, the boneyard! Stasia will love that!"

Not so much.

But he did!



Finally it was clear that there was only one way to tame the beast that was our cranky 3 year old.



That's right. Snack time!





And suddenly all was right with the world!

It was pretty clear that lunch was in order by this time, so we headed off for...



Kids chicken 'n fries



Kid, eating the chicken 'n fries (is that not a look of joy?!)





King Pao Beef



Sweet 'n Sour Pork



Shrimp Lo Mein



Key Lime Pie



Chocolate Cake






Coming up next... SERIOUSLY?!

Well, howdy! It wasn't that she didn't like the boneyard per se, it was that she didn't give it a chance. She was still so annoyed by being forced upon Pluto and Goofy that the boneyard was a lost cause. It wasn't until her sister was kind enough to give her that giant Mickey head sucker that she became human again.

Lara, your pictures are just so gorgeous!!! I have serious photography envy!

Love the first "growling" photopass picture with no one doing it except you -- did you notice Jose is getting a good laugh during it?

I did! He was absolutely roaring with laughter by the time the photographer had finished. He got into the spirit of things once he realized he wasn't being Punkd. lol

And we wandered right into...

The Beatniks!

Kyle loves percussion so he was way into these guys.





Kyle (and the crowd) with the noise sticks the band pass out during the performance.



Coming up next... DeVine!

DeVine!

Right about the time we wandered away from The Beaniks, Alexandra had a major meltdown. She was way tired and WAY used to getting naps every afternoon. I was hoping she'd crash in her stroller, but no such luck. Jose volunteered to take her back to POR so the rest of the kids and I could finish exploring the parks till our feet gave out. So off went Kyle, Tatiana, Anastasia and myself to see what we could find!

And boy did we get a find...

DeVine wandered right into our path! People were stopping dead in their tracks as she moved toward them, and you could see the looks on most faces like they were trying to comprehend what they were seeing.

In other words, it was AWESOME.






















Coming up next: The hunt for Rafiki.

I was stuck in that position and ... It took 4 strapping young boys to hoist me back on my feet
Personally, I'm a popper! I love me some black heads.

I have no shame - be nosey! lol

I have to ask Jose, as he's the one who actually bought it for me. I can't remember exactly how much we paid for it, but I looked it up on Amazon (here) and it's $481; that's the camera body and the basic lens. I got a second lens that I used to take some of the far away shots, but honestly the kit lens it comes with isn't shabby. (Obviously!) I seriously heart it, and for a DSLR camera it's pretty inexpensive.
