Looks like the ones we would catch at the lake when I was a kid. Those suckers were huge; easily a foot in length. I've never seen them that big since.

So what you're saying is there's something fishy about that bird?

It is a nice shot.

Something I'll probably never do. DW had an unfortunate incident at the zoo with a monkey when she was little and now absolutely wants nothing to do with them.

Great pictures from the Pangani Trail! Lily is so cute. It's always fun watching the gorillas, especially her.

YUM, that Milky Way sundae looks so good! Well,actually they both do. I really need to get to Beaches and Cream for one of those.

thanks for the info!! Hmmmm....thinking we may need to upgrade to those hoppers as my husband isn't too keen on the time restraints of fast passes. He feels like we end up running from one end of the park to the other to catch the return time. that's why we liked the flexibility of returning "whenever" . Oh well, we will make it work!!

Not so sure on a TR...unfortunately my daughter plays on the Jr Varsity volleyball team at CJS so volleyball has once again taken over our evenings and weekends and being back at work in a school makes the first couple of months CRAZY!! We will unfortunately miss one of her tournaments while we are away but she has some great friends who will get her where she needs to be. I am just glad to be going to Disney and if it wasn't for an amazing TA DIS friend who is doing the planning and organizing for me I am not so sure I would pull this off at this short notice. Reservations, flights, dining (free dining!!!) park hours....just not enough hours in a day.

Great update! I love all the pictures of the gorillas. I could stand and watch them for hours--fascinating creatures!

Beaches 'N Cream is always a good way to spend an afternoon. Your milky way sundae looks yummy-licious! I don't really like peanut butter, so I'd have to pass on Shanleigh's choice, but my oldest, Elizabeth would love it!

Great pics of the gorillas, that Lilly is so cute

Substituting a visit to Beaches 'N Cream for rainy pool time makes perfect sense to me...and looked delicious!!

Okay, I'm all caught up after my trip!!

I love your gorilla pictures! When we were there, there were two of them that I was concerned about, but they were just sleeping, too! We had to move to the outdoor viewing area to see any moving about. I think I got some good video and pictures, though I haven't yet seen either so I'm not sure! I'm still unpacking and we've been back almost a week! I can see how you could spend an hour watching them. They are beautiful and fascinating. I love seeing how much babies and mothers interact just like we do--so similar, and so emotional. Love it.

Good decision on heading to the Yacht Club. Can't go wrong with Beach and Cream, and you ordered my favorite! The Milky Way...it's nearly impossible to finish by yourself, but it's a lot of fun to try.
We sure were lucky to hit at such a great time! Lily is adorable!

Impossible is right, but I sure gave a go at it! It's my favourite sundae EVER! And you're right, you can never go wrong heading over there!

Sounds like a great ak day, how sweet that lily came out to perform for you! I didn't get to see her
Mmmmm beaches and cream!

Glad you are home safe and sound!

Too bad you didn't get to see her, she really is something! Oh well, just another excuse to go back (like we need one LOL)

LOL isn't that the truth! grade seven was particularily bad for moi!
Shan went to a makeup party? How do I not know about these things?!

It's called Arbonne and it's an American company, only being doing parties in Canada for about 5 years. It's super expensive tho, she didn't buy anything!
Dude, those frogs are HUGE! French chefs would love those......

I would love them too if a French chef prepared them for me....
Beaches and Cream. Not eating a No Way Jose?! That's a travesty. Although the peanut butter sundae does look pretty good.
She was so tossed about it and then after she said that yes, the sundae was delicious but next time whether she was sharing with someone or along, she was ordering the No Way Jose!

A rainy afternoon filled with ice cream sounds like heaven. That peanut butter and chocolate sundae looks AMAZING!

I hope that you enjoy you family weekend!
Oh it was such a great afternoon! We definitely didn't let a rainy afternoon foil any plans for us. That's the one great thing about Disney, you can always find something to do on a rainy day!

Hope you're enjoying your weekend!

Your ice cream treats look so good! We may have to stop in Beaches and Cream while we're at the YC

Couldn't agree more Dawn, loved our time there!

Oh I hope you don't get into Beaches and Cream while you're there! Can't wait to hear all about these latest adventures!

Oh no, let's keep our fingers crossed that it's simply just a rumour...I am going to be so sad if it's gone!

It is now our go to restaurant at AK. We usually only plan one day at that park so to be able to get in out of the heat, have a great lunch and head back out is fantastic!

What a great day at MK.

OK - confused? Are you allergic to peanuts? Is that the reason for the chair?
Shanleigh did a great job with the camera that's for sure. It was nice for me just to stand around and enjoy the moments! I

Yes, I have a severe allergy and always carry an epi pen or 2 with me at all times! Not fun, but I've lived with it all my life so it's second nature now to be careful! We can't have peanut products in the house but my girl does loves her peanut products!

And about the lockout. We're going to sit and cry together. Because there's nothing else to do about it

It was a great way to spend a large chunk of our day!

Cry is right, I am so bummed! I said to Shanleigh that I guess the money we would have spent on the Jets Channel for the season can go into the Disney account, might as well make the best of a bad situation!

I agree, I think she did great with these pics!

You're hilarious! Speaking of The Keg, I hope ours opens up again, they've been doing renovations for a month and that's where my girls and I spend celebrating our October birthdays!
Thanks for the chapter!

This is one of the days that I couldn't wait to tell you about! It was the day we went to Star Wars Weekend. The original plan had been to go on Saturday or Sunday, however, a CM told us we were better off getting here first thing Friday morning! Who am I to argue with a CM.....

Shanleigh doing her very best Darth impersonation

Not sure how this got out of order but I had to share this shirt, isn't it cute!

I asked Shan to stand between the ST's and the one of the right was heckling her, it was hilarious. She turned around and waved to him and he told her to move it along...priceless!

Decided to grab a shot just of them! I was a little overwhelmed and couldn't quite believe that I was as excited as I was. The original SW's movie came out when I was in grade seven but I'm not a SW nut...but I was right now!

We did as the CM had told us and went straight to the merchandise tent which was sent up kinda beside RnRC (the fence there was opened up)

So much to look at ..... see the grey shirt on the left...we bought that one for Geodoc!

The costumes were amazing and pricey!!!

If only I had $1500

I thought this one was the best!

Shanleigh was contemplating these for her cousins but changed her mind...aren't they cute?

2 more...again, she put them back just in case she found something better! I have taught her well!

One of the pieces of art they had for sale...there were some serious dealers there which we found quite enjoyable to watch!

Storm Trooper toque...or hat for our American friends

R2D2 backpack....trust me, she wanted this! But again, she put it back!

This piece of art was listed at $16 000.00 yikes...and someone was seriously thinking of buying it! He thought we were going to buy it so he was in quite a frenzy...hilarious. I couldn't let him sweat so I told him we had no interest in the piece!

More merchandise. It was at this moment that we noticed people lining up for pictures...with who you ask...we had no clue but figured what they hey, we would line up and get what we got!

Look who we got!!! C3P0 was beyond funny! Him and Shanleigh were having quite the conversation about where we were from. When she replied Canada he said "oh you're from the white, barren wasteland to the north" we cracked up! R2 was trying so hard to get Shanleigh's attention that he was rocking back and forth and making quite a racket...until she leaned over and gave him a kiss!

We made a few purchases for Geodoc who is a SW's fanatic. We got him a teeshirt, Iphone case, name badge and I can't remember what else, but he was thrilled! We headed over to see what other characters were wandering around the Studios and stopped to check out the hoola hoop contest....this lovely lady was hosting!

The stage where we would later see the Hyper Space Hoopla...great, now that song is stuck in my head!

Isn't she precious! Her line was ridiculously long so I just waited to grab her alone!

everyone's favourtie Wookie!!! Again, the line up was very long so I just grabbed the shot and we moved along!

Queen Amidala....the costumes were really amazing!
So much more to share, but the laundry is calling!!!

Which one is doing renos??? Ruby and I and possibly kids and possibly parents and possibly sister and .... let's just say we too are going to the Keg in October... some time. We like the one on Garry... but I think it's the Moray St. one, right? (Sheesh, you'd think I'd know that... since I drive right by it every single freaking day!)

The force is with them, right?

That's great! I had no idea that they would talk. I thought they were silent like Mickey, et al.

The Chewie costume is 'only' $650... quite a bit cheaper then the other two. Wonder why?

Ummm.... it's cute and all (Ha! I used that word!) at SW places... but would you really wear it anywhere else?

That's not like you Queen. I would've turned to Shan and said in a 'loud' quiet voice, "If I offer $17K I probably won't have to fight for it!"

R2 was trying so hard to get Shanleigh's attention that he was rocking back and forth and making quite a racket...until she leaned over and gave him a kiss!
Great experience. And that photo is beyond amazing. The droids look like they just stepped out of the movie. At least from here. How about close up?
