This little guy was peeking out





This guy looked like he was having a time out



Sleepy



Hungry



And not sure what this one was thinking



We made our way back towards the back of the Tree of Life. There is a quiet trail in the back















It's Tough To Be A Bug was 5 min. wait so we went in.



After that I did a little shopping before we headed out























Then another shop..

Bye Bye Tree of Life



Hello Rainforest Cafe





The boys thought I should buy this shirt but I didn't.









I love these palm trees







We headed to the bus stop for AKL



The skies were getting very dark.

I am going to end this here for now. I need to get supper ready.

HI Doreen,
Thanks for the update....what a lousy weekend weather wise...at times it POURED yesterday...non-stop
fingers crossed for great weather this coming weekend..

Too bad you can't find the T-shirt
Its a really pretty shirt...have you checked your luggage? One trip I left some clothes in a front pocket and only find out when I went to pack for another trip...

I love the Tigers! you got some really good pics. The gift shops looked like they had some really cool things...I would have had a hard time picking out something to buy.

Love the ride pics! Your boys made some funny pcitures! I can never find the spot on the rides where they take the pictures...I have seen some really funny pics here on the DIS. I keep saying that next time I will figure out the spot and do something funny.

EE is great!! The only drop is the one you see. Although you do go backwards very quickly.

Bummer about the shirt! I bought a new shirt from the same shop & wear it a lot. I love it because it doesn't scream Disney.

I'm soooo glad they found your sunglasses!! As a prescription sunglass wearer, I can totally understand your panic! When we went to Typhoon Lagoon, I wore my old pair because I was afraid of losing or breaking them. It was a little strange trying to adjust to the old prescription and then back to the new one at the end of the day!
O my gosh I went into instant panic when I realized I did not have them.

Yeah I am not too happy about my missing shirt. I wore it during the trip & remember washing it while we did laundry.

Oh my you hit your head??? Wow you did bang yourself up!

Great safari pictures...you got some really good shots. Love the giraffe and elephant ones especially.

I meant to say earlier that I was sorry you couldn't find the shirt (and it's so cute too).
Yeah I figured I would get a good update in today. Very gloomy outside.

I cannot imagine where that shirt is.

Lady Lion was sure enjoying a good sprawl out, wasn't she?

That ice cream looks good!
We enjoy Flights of Wonder. We do not see it every trip but often. It was the boys idea (Ryan I think).

Yes lady lion was very sleepy. I do not know how I got those pics because I could not even see her from where I was. I just pointed & zoomed. Gotta love that 35 times zoom.

We've never done Flights of Wonder (not a big bird fan), but it looks like it is a great show.
We enjoy the show. Of course it helps if you like birds.

I believe my DH checked all the luggage but I will check again. I just cannot figure out where it could have gone.

I love shopping at AK. They have so many great things. Lots to choose from!
The boys always try to be silly for the cameras.

I am on a roll today with the updating. I am still on our first full day.

Wow, mega update!!! Love all your pictures for AK. I love that park but for some reason, we always go there the end of the vacation when we are starting to wear down. We never stay there very long.

I the bird show. Granted, I don't like birds but I love that show.

Great pictures of Devine. We have only seen her once.

Can't wait to read more.

Wow, didnt you sneek in some major updates! Your tiger pictures are amazing, my cat has just been having a quick look at the screen but didnt seem too impressed

The weather is rubbish here in the UK for the long Jubilee weekend so our pool hasnt been back out. On the MIL front, it was high blood pressure that made her pass out. Its been a bad week again with her as she suffered a collapsed lung after the surgery. I'm trynig to stay positive and focussed on our trip *** DD(7) can feel the vibes.

The boys really only like EE but deal with the rest at AK. I love seeing all the animals.

We usually see Devine each trip. I think we just happen to always go to EE first & then the safari & she seems to be there in that time.

My cat does not pay too much attention to the tv but if other cats are in our yard watch out. She tries to go through the windows to get them.

Too bad about the weather. It is STILL raining here & will most of the week. But they just said on the news it should be cleared up by Friday!!

I hope your MIL will be feeling better soon!!

Are you getting married in Disney??

Lets get a little update in before I have to go to the doctors & to work. We arrived at AKL a little early for our 4:30 ADR so we walked around the gift shop.



















Beautiful AKL







The skies opened up while we were there







Jeff & I sat around here for a bit



Then we headed to Boma





Some CM's making some music



My first plate



2nd plate



And of course the wonderful Zebra Domes (and a few other goodies)



All of us just love it there & it never disappoints. I also had some soup (Butternut Squash) that was wonderful!!

Well got to get ready for work.

How did we get back to BC???

Boma looks so great. I can't wait to try it in July Question though...it looks like the just have big long tables. Do they seat you "family style" with other people at the same table? That might be a deal breaker for me...don't particularly like having strangers watch me eat. That's why I don't care to try O'Hana....don't want to be put with other people.
