Thanks, Kathy. This was actually the first time I'd ever seen DiVine. Kevin and Rachel saw her one year on their way to grab FPs at Everest as well. She must hang out in that area most the time.

You must have sensed a little foreshadowing in that poncho comment. You're a wise woman!

Thanks, Megan! I'd never seen DiVine, either, in nine visits! Your kids will think she's too cool!

Thanks, Carissa. I was glad I got to see her in person. I don't think my sister and her kids had ever seen her either.

The picture..............

Great safari pictures. I could go on a safari every day and be quite happy.
Thanks, MeMom! I bet your computer did give you a red squiggly line for that one! I'm a little afraid of the rhinos too; they could do some serious damage!

Thanks, Dana. You've got to get on Everest. It is so much fun!

Thanks, Anita!

We would ask Meg after every ride if she liked it, and she'd say "Yes." Then when we'd ask her if she wanted to ride it again, she'd say, "No."

Thanks, Leanne!

I need to see your photopass picture of Lindsey.....We can compare! Although, I'm pretty sure you weren't tormenting her, like I was with Meg. (You'll see what I mean when you see the picture! )

Thanks, Michelle! I am loving the new camera. It's great. Now, I'm starting to get a little lens envy though..........................

DiVine is pretty cool.

The photopass picture will come soon!

I've been so bad at catching up with my subscribed threads the last few days. I love love love the safari at Animal Kingdom and to me you can't have too many pictures of the animals. Your gorilla pic is great. Last year, Hunter and I were able to catch sight of a lot of gorillas since they had just fed them when we got there. They are truly amazing animals.

I once saw DiVine but didn't really know what I was looking at and we were on our way to something else so I walked on past. I wish I had stopped to take pictures.

I can hardly wait to see the picture of Dinosaur! When Hunter was younger, we could always tell if he really liked an attraction by asking if he wanted to ride it again. If he said "no", then we knew he didn't really like it much even though he said he did.

I know what you mean, Lisa. I was out, with no DIS time this weekend, and now catching up on my threads, is worse than my laundry!


You will definitely want to see this terrible picture!

You look at that dinosaur! You better remember that! (AK 3/21)

Well, I left you with the tale of the Dinosaur ride and the promise of a very unflattering picture.

To review-----Meg had not cooperated with getting to sleep on either Friday or Saturday nights, when it had been bedtime. So, while in Animal Kingdom, that Sunday, my sister and I decided that a “little” punishment was required for such behavior! We decided that we would all ride Dinosaur. I could hear Meg screaming throughout the ride and I remember just trying to reach over and try to comfort her and keep her from bouncing all over the place.

When we came off the ride, we ran to the PhotoPass pictures. Here it is----




It looks like I’m grabbing her face to make her look at the scary dinosaurs. My sister had to provide some “imagined” conversation…… “Look at it---You look at that scary dinosaur. You’ve kept us awake for two nights, tormented us, and now it’s my turn. I mean you look at that good.!” We cracked up! My sister and I just lost it laughing.

Oh, and for the record, my story is that I was trying to comfort her and help her to not be bounced all around. THAT'S MY STORY, AND I'M STICKING WITH IT!!!


After that, any time Meg began to melt down into a temper tantrum (in the South, we call that a “fit”), my sister or I would say, “You better stop that crying. Do you want to have to ride that Dinosaur again?” Then we’d just look at each other and say, “You better look at that scary dinosaur!”


Some may not agree with our demented parenting techniques……………………………


After that , we got in to see the first showing of the Nemo show. We were some of the last ones in the theater, and we had to sit all the way on the bleachers at the back---Not the best seat, but we’ve seen the show before, so we made the best of it.


We left and decided to grab some lunch. It was Flame-Tree for my sister and me. We took our trays and walked over to Pizzafari, to grab that for the kids.


It had started to rain, so ponchos were purchased and that only set us back about $22 for three adult-sized ones! We decided to duck into ITTBAB. As we got closer to the entrance, it began to pour----awful, straight-down falling rain. The line practically stopped, because people were stopping to take off their ponchos. Finally we got in, and watched the show. Meg had never actually sat on the theater seats, and you should have seen her face when those hornets came by “stinging.” She jumped off that seat and looked back at it! Of course, even my “scaredy-cat” older girls lean up during this part!


When we came out the rain was even worse. We took cover under a store awning, but at that point, our shoes were soaked. YUCK! After about ten minutes of us being huddled under the store awning, there seemed to be a lightening up in the heavy rain. We decided to make a run for FOTLK show. When we got there, there was a line, going to the back of the theater. I commented on how I’d never gone in this way. When we finally got to the door, I knew why---------------- The door opened up at the very top, behind the very last seat. It was standing room only. We moved all the way down to stand against the wall. A CM came over and asked how many, and we told her 6. She said she had room for 5, and we told her someone would hold Meg, and we’d make it fit. She led us down the stairs, across the floor, past a float, to the handicapped row right on the front. Lucky break for us coming in so late!


This is one of my favorite shows at Disney, so I thought it was great as always!









When we left the show, it was still raining, and it was almost 4 o’clock. Everyone was wet and cold. We decided to head back to POR and put on some dry clothes. The original plan was to grab some dinner and go over to MK for evening magic hours. No one really had the energy to do that, so we just made an early night of it.


Up next----Rock-n-Roll time
