    :sad2: Erich probably just posted because I told him I posted silly pictures of Mom. :lmao:

    Hi there! So sorry the pictures were down. :guilty: According to photobucket they should be back up and functioning today, I hope so!

    How cool that we were in the same parks, maybe I got you in some of my pictures! :laughing:


    I'll try! ;)

    Thanks! I will! My job for this weekend is uploading all the pictures we want made into prints so that they will all be organized into photo albums for when we visit the family in Toledo at the end of the month.

    This picture business is exhausting, I need to stop taking so many! :laughing:

    Love the photos of your Mom, I wouldn't have known how to pose either :rotfl:

    Ooh I hope your Mom rides EE, at least once anyway!

    Looks like we all would have been baffled by that darn King Louie. :lmao: Too bad Alek and Erich weren't there, I'm sure they would have come up with a creative pose. ;)

    We got to the loading area and to my delight Mom did not chicken out, she got on the ride! :woohoo: We were seated in the middle section of the train which was good for Mom's first time, I don't think she would have enjoyed the front!

    Here we go!

    Doesn't look nervous does she?

    Our train stalled here for what felt like several minutes, certainly longer than it usually does.

    [​IMG]

    She is starting to look a little nervous now isn't she? :lmao:

    [​IMG]

    Finally we started moving backwards, Wheeeee!

    Oh no! The Yeti is after us!

    [​IMG]

    Well Mom survived the ride, not sure how much she enjoyed it though she claims that she did.

    I attempted to take a picture of our ride photo but Mom and I were in the back of our car and the picture on the screen was so dark at the top that you couldn't really make out our faces just our bodies. Oh well.

    [​IMG]

    We decided to go see Finding Nemo:The Musical, good decision too as it started to POUR as we entered the theatre. Now we had seen the show back in 2007 and weren't overly thrilled by it. Well I liked it much more this time around. There was nothing different about it so no idea why I didn't like it then but like it now. I am just fickle I guess.

    When the show ended I could still hear the drumming of the rain on the roof of the theatre so on went the ponchos.

    Mom suggested that we go ride Dinosaur. I was surprised by this as she did not like how jerky it was when she rode it in 2007 and she had skipped it last year.

    The ride was pretty much a walk-on, hurray!

    I love our ride photo, especially the people sitting in the row in front of us, hilarious!

    [​IMG]

    We exited from Dinosaur and guess what!? It was still pouring! So on went the ponchos. :rotfl: Mom had to take a bathroom break and I saw Pluto out for photos in the covered area next to the bathrooms. It looked like a seating area for a restaurant. Nobody was out there though and Pluto was all by himself. So I saw Mom heading towards the bathroom so I went over to him to wait for her out of the rain.

    Well I guess I worried Mom at this point, she didn't think I had heard her say she was going to the bathroom and she didn't see where I had gone so she thought I had wandered off into the park without her when in reality I had been right there waiting for her the whole time. :rotfl: She thought I was lost in a sea of ponchos.

    Our next destination was Festival of the Lion King but first we stopped off to enjoy a Churro. I had never had one before and it was on my list of snacks to try that trip.

    Mom went and sat in the covered area while I stood at the stand in the rain and waited to place my order. This is where I got really annoyed. When I went up to the window there was one little boy there placing his order. Well then his sister came up and joined him and placed her order. Okay I didn't mind that so much. The two of them handed over their room card to pay so I figured okay she will get them their snacks and then it will be my turn. Well nope! Five other people from their family, all adults cut right in front of me and ordered food too! That made me steaming mad! They should have been there in line with the kids to begin with and ordered and paid all together or they should have gotten in line behind me considering the kids had already paid for their food before the adults even arrived. I hate rude people! So there I stood in the rain waiting to place my order which took forever as there was only one person working that little stand so she had to take the orders and prepare the food.

    Finally I got my hands on our churro and went to join Mom.

    [​IMG]

    Well sadly the Churro was nothing exciting, definitely not worth the aggravation I had just gone through to get it. At least I was able to check it off my list of things to try and I needed something in my stomach anyways since it had been several hours since I had last eaten anything.

    Once we finished off the Churro we once again headed back out into the rain.

    Lessa I completely understand about Nemo ! ;)I saw it in 2008 and said it's ok but nothing like the Lion King !! Well I went again this year ! In fact I made a second trip to AK to see it after my Boma breakfast !! Guess what I loved it :cool1: I still think Lion King is the best but Nemo is very close behind and I can't figure out why I didn't like it the first time either !:confused3

    Yay for Beth and EE !!:banana:

    Churros at pepper Market were delish !!

    It tasted like a lesser version of a beaver tail.

    Wow, you must have really liked it to see it twice on your trip!

    I quite enjoyed it this second time around. Maybe it was because I was so happy to be out of the rain for an extended amount of time. :rotfl:;)

    :cool1: That your mom rode EE! My mom never even rode SM back in 1980 when we went as a family. I put the Nemo Musical on the next time must do list, your pics look great. Sorry about the rude family. I agree Churros are not that great.

    Yep, I was surprised that she followed through with Everest. Then again she watched the video on Youtube so many times that there were not really any surprises for her. :laughing:

    I was a bit disappointed with the Churro but at least now I have tried it and can try something else next time! :thumbsup2 I am glad that we only bought one and split it, would have hated to waste money buying two.
