I am finally caught up....I have been so far behind!!! I am still laughing about John getting his gun when he thought someone was in the yard....I can not believe the Police did not tell you guys first.....They do know they are in Louisiana, and everyone here has a shotgun...right???

Praying for your nephews baby!

Love the updates..you guys always crack me up!

I could watch the gorillas all day. Animal Kingdom is my favorite park. Great pictures of Lily. She was never out the last time we went. The CM told me she was getting bigger and doing well.

Lisa - glad Tripp is OK!

On to your TR. Can I just say WOW WOW WOW on the gorilla shots. They are wonderful. I have never seen a shot of a gorilla drinking. That is wonderful. Such great action!

And you got TWO lions. Waaaaaah! No fair! I am so jealous. So lucky.

OK - I never realized that island was shaped like a hidden mickey. Am I the only person who doesn't know that.

John with the bag in his crotch - way too funny! Glad I finally saw those pictures!

Great safari pictures, especially the elephants and the closeup of the animals.

But I'm with Mary Ellen. WOW on the gorilla pictures! I remember you posted some really awesome ones from your last trip, but these are spectacular, too! The ones where the gorilla is drinking are really cool and unique.

Awww the baby elephant is so cute!!!!

Yay for the lions being out and about!! That's awesome!

Hahahaha that gorilla really does look like he's trying the "ignore them and they'll maybe leave" trick - too bad for him you weren't budging!

My DW and I love Animal Kingdom. At home we go to the local zoo several times a year and pretty much everytime I'm there I walk away with several pictures of rhino butts!

So glad your nephews baby is doing better, prayers continue for the little guy and his parents.

Awesome pics of the Lions, I never see them up and around, they are always sleeping when I have been there.

I love the gorilla pics too, little Lilly is getting big, I remember she was so tiny for so long. I didn't get to either trail on our last trip, that will have to be rectified next time.

I'm not a big zoo/animal lover either, but I do love the monkeys/chimps/gorillas. They are just so cool!!! Thanks for the great pictures of them. That baby is too sweet.

I'm hoping that the man in the leotard is a performer. Or maybe John started getting really crazy?

I enjoy AK, but once a trip is usually enough for me. My Sister and Mom, however, spent about three days there last year - of course, they are both docents at our Zoo here and every vacation either one of them goes on usually includes one zoo. And I think my mom could probably put a whole series of coffee table books devoted soley to animal butt pictures.

I love the gorillas too and always stay watching them for as long as I can. They are so fascinating to watch. I gave up trying to take pictures on the safari ride several trips ago because it is too hard with the bumpy road and the trucks never slowing down. You got some great pictures of the elephants and so exciting to have the lions out!

Do any of you guys and gals watch Duck Dynasty? They live here in our town and we see them out and about and they are friends with several of our friends. Hunter got out of school at lunch today so we stopped by the Duck Commander warehouse to pick up a few Christmas gifts. Jep was helping out in the store when we got there but was called back into the warehouse before we could go over and talk with him. We overheard someone ask if the rest of the guys were there and they were told that they were in the woods hunting but would be making an appearance at our local mall for the toy drive later this afternoon. We always contribute to the toy drive and figured this was a good way to not only donate the toys but also meet some of the Robertson family.

Hunter with Sadie, Cole and John Luke. (More than one person commented that he looked like one of the family.)

Si Robertson was just as funny in person as he is on television. He was a hoot!

For those of you who are wondering...yes, Si did have his glass of sweet tea and would, every now and then, pull out a big container of tea from under the table and refill his glass.

We also met Korie and Missy but we didn't get a picture with them because Korie, Missy and I were talking about our mutual friends. I mentioned that Hunter would love to work for them and Korie told me to bring him to the warehouse and talk to a certain person because they were swamped. Hunter couldn't believe that Korie told him to come by.

The Robertson family is one of the nicest familes you will ever meet. There is no pretense about them and what you see is what you get. They stand strong in their Christian beliefs and often speak at schools, churches, conferences, etc. If any of you are interested, check out this short video:
