Hey Mary Ellen am back and catching up on the boards

Great pics of the Christmas tree and Gingerbread house. Love the Minnie shirt - I wish I had seen it as would've bought that one

Sounds like a great meal at CG and that dessert =

Great fireworks and AK pics

If you've never seen the show, I would recommend it. It was entertaining and the birds were cool. Plus you get to sit! [ /quote ]

I really do recommend it. I guess you couldn't go see it in August, could you? Jeff would have absolutely freaked! Actually, it might be a good immersion for him. A half an hour in there and he should be over his fear!

Don't rethink it. Just pick the right items of the menu. Definitely get the green beans - they were so good and I really think my salad would have been perfect with a better cut of tuna.

I'm so glad you told me this because I can't wait to try this in June so I can scare the crap out of my nephews (wait - that sounds kind of mean, doesn't it? ). Let me change that phrasing - I want to SURPRISE my nephews. How's that?

So glad you liked the bird pics. I hope you do try FOW. It was a lot of fun (unless a bird is flying directly at you ). I felt just close enough to all the action and I was sitting to the left of the stage in the back set of bleachers. Pretty safe there.

It is a very pleasant place to sit and I imagine its a wonderful reprieve from the summer heat. I am so going back there for a Yak Attack and some more green beans, but I'll go to the bar!

Isn't that the cutest shirt. I was tempted, but the $30 price tag held me back. For some reason I just can't pay inflated prices for a T-shirt. I would rather put that $ to regular clothes. I love a cute T-shirt, but at Disney I buy what's on sale.

You know - the only chicken/rooster I saw was the one at the end of the show. Maybe the sent him out to pick up all the crumbs left over from the other birds.

Well, that sounds exactly like what I have been trying to do. It's working pretty well and I like that I am not deleting most of the reply and then pasting it back in again. Thanks!

Do the boys like birds or are they afraid of them? It's actually a pretty entertaining show. There really aren't any slow parts, so I think it would keep their attention. There were a lot of younger kids in there. They keep it moving pretty well and the story line is pretty cute. But I know how hard it can be to try to fit everything in.

Unbelievable fireworks photos! I felt like I was there with you, Mary Ellen!

Beautiful wine glass -- I am glad you posted a picture because I was going to have to bug you to see it.

Glad your mom's procedure went well.

Yeay for seeing the Maharajah Trek. Isn't the theming spectacular? But where is the pic of Nick looking scared of the tigers? That's a must-do.

We have never seen Flights of Wonder. Now I want to!

We love Yak & Yeti!
It's a must-do everytime.
The potstickers and Shaoxing Steak & Shrimp are delicious!

We have never seen Flights of Wonder though.
It looks like fun.

I did not KNOW that was a must-do and Nick is SO good at stuff like that. I will have to admit that you were my inspiration for wanting to see the bats. Well you and Connor, of course. The theming is awesome! Better than I imagined and it and the tree of life are probably tied for my favorite aeas.

I'm surprised because you are sort of an AK guru. It really is a cute and entertaining show. Add it to your ever growing list.

I remember reading about the shrimp and steak in your TR and I so wish one of us had ordered it. If I go back, and I'm sure I will, that is the entree I am going to order for sure. Why mess with success?

It was a very entertaining show. I definitely think everyone should see it at least once. The birds are pretty amazing!

I'm soooo far behind on Dis, as usual! But I just read your last post! I LOVE every single picture from the trek!! FAB-U-LOUS!!

I'm sorry your lunch at Yak and Yeti wasn't fabulous! I didn't know it was a Landrys restaurant, that could be why

Your Flights of Wonders pics are amazing as well! John and I did that show in Oct of 10 and I have to admit it freaked me out a bit!! I'm not a big fan of birds flying too close to me!!

Great update, MEK. As always pictures are terrific. I'm sorry Yak & Yeti was only okay (we really enjoyed it the time we went, but we had totally different entrees). We have never done Flights of Wonder...think I'll have to add to bucket list.

It sure is. I know exactly what you mean about the prices for a t-shirt - I do the same. Wait until the sales to get something I really like - that's if the item isn't sold out by then!



It was such a enjoyable meal. Perfect evening. I'm so glad we were able to take Nick there and he really enjoyed himself. The fireworks were the perfect end to the evening.

It was the same on our meal - the fireworks were the icing on the cake

Thanks! So glad you enjoyed the pics. I have soooooooooooooooo many more AK pics. I did photograph the Christmas parade and got quite a few there, but I got some cool Osbourne light pictures so stick around!
I'm definitely sticking around for more great pics!!!!
