A Disney Day

Since it was an breathtakingly beautiful day in sunny Florida today, we took advantage of it at Animal Kingdom. Dh, Logan and I all rode Expedition Everest for the FIRST time. I may have a new favorite ride! My mom went with us as well so she stayed with the younger two while we rode. It was so much fun! We also saw the Nemo show and walked the trails. Saw lots of animals. Dh, mom and the boys all went on Dinosaur. I thought it would really freak the boys out but they surprised me. Dh bought the picture so I'll try to scan it in so you can see their faces. LOL They didn't look as terrified as some of the kids in the car.

While walking one of the trails, we came upon a little girl who was crying. She was lost! Poor thing. She couldn't have been more than 6. My mom quickly took her to the Castmember and he was able to calm her down. He started walking back up the trail with her and showed her all the animals along the way. He was so good with her. When he finally found her family, they had no clue she had gone missing! She must have been gone a good 10 minutes easily if not longer since she had to walk the length of the trail to where she found us. How do you not miss your small child for that long?! I have my eyes on my boys constantly- especially at such a crowded place like Disney. Yes they can get away from you I know, but I'd like to think I would have noticed sooner. Logan realized what was happening with her and told me "She lost her Safeside adult." That movie really had an impact on him! I'm glad we found her though and she was safely reunited with her family.

I'll post more pics tomorrow! (hopefully)

I was going to say the same thing as Karen! That little girl's face is hysterical!
