Animal Kingdom

Day 2 of disney.. Animal kingdom.. We were all exhausted fromt eh day before but thats ok b/c disney is so awesome. Wehn you go into animal kingdom every thing is shady, and beautiful . The trees and plants make it gorgeous. THen of course there is the tree of life in the middle. We love the tree fo life but did not get to spend as much time there as I would have liked. IT was hot 101.. WE did the safri trama nd IT was evferything everyone had said. IT was great , both boys wanted to ride it again. The best part was when they said to watch out for this bridge coming up and that they didnt know if we would make it across the bridge . then one part of the bridge "gave way" everyone screamed. It was great. About 5 minutes later .Luke looks at me and goes that was fake it was just robotic. Shhh yes but dont tell everyone. WE are with Tony and thier family and umpa.. They all screamed also. Umpa is having fun sharing memeories and making memories with the boys. It was a lot. I really enjoyed the lion king show. I love watching the expression on the kids faces as they watch somehting. Oh the best part.. HA Landry , harley , umpa and I went to ride Dinosaur.. Thinking it was nothing scary . HA iot was super scary like frezaky scary.. BAD BAD BAD idea! I laughed so hard. Landry sat there saying to himself over and over there just robats there just robots.. Tehn our picture they take had umpa and I yelling and you could not see either kid.. both of them had their heads down.. TO funny


Today is daty in Orlando .. WE decided to goto Epcot first b/c the lady at the ticket counter said that Magic kingdom was crazy busy . So we opted for Epcot ..It was awesome , THe boys LOVED LOVED LOVED it, I think it is Lukes favorite park. There are so many very cool things there. WE did not finish all of them so I think we have to go back and see it again. WE stayed until teh fireworkd\s which were AMAZING!!! LAndry and Harley rode test track and LOVED it They thought it was the best ride ever! Lukes favorite was soarin .. he thought it was super cool . HE wants to go back and ride it over and over again. THere was a lot we didnt see there but we loved it ALL ..

Discovery Cove

Today is day 3 in Orlando. We went to discovery cove. At first I was against this idea b/c it is so expensive. But IT was totally worth it. The boys loved snorkling. THere were 6000 fish for htem to see. Lukas really really enjoyed it. He was hilarious. HE kept talking thru his snorkle. oh woow. Look at that. He was so excited and kept pointing things out to me. There were sting rays that were at east 6 feet across. there wwere sharks and eels and tons and tons of fish. ANd the coral reef. HE loved looking at all the differnt types of corals. Im guessing we snorkled about 4 hours straight. Landry of course loved it also, HE however just did not seem enarly as impressed as Lukas was. He liked it and snorkled and stuff but not to the awe factor lukas had. THen we got a 45 minute incounter with the dolphins, we met 3 difffernt dolphins. The boys loved that and then tehy went out in teh deep water 15 feet deep, and treaded water until the dolphin came by then you grabbed his dorsil fina dn his flipper and he gave you a ride around the pool. It was awesome. I loved it, Both boys loved it. It was very very cool.
A very memorable day!!! Thansk umpa for making us go! Love ya!

Some days you blink and it seems they have grown 3 inches and they are 2 years older. Not sure how that happens. I just realize the harder I try to hold on to their youth the quicker it goes by. For now I am still mommy.. Iknow the next eyar will hold many changes especially for landry as he goes from 4th to 5th grade. 5ht graders are so big so obnoxious. Hopefully we will skip that all togeather and he will stay my little snugglebug. Luke just keeps growing and growing and is so not little.

The State fair

< We LOVE LOVE LOVE the State Fair.

We saw these cuties at the petting zoo, we think they look like lama

We Always do the little hands on the farm. Kids get to walk through and pretend they are farmers. Then when they get done"working" they get paid and get candy.

They milk cows, plant vegt ables..

harvest their garden.

and of course ride their tractors to feed the animals. uhmm I'm sure this qualifies as 2 feet on the ground.. since we are a whole whopping 6 days from breaking his arm.

Landry's Favorite art of the fair. This year they did a tribute to Tom Landry. I wish we could have spent more time there but it was a long line to get in and a lot of reading. HE really liked looking at all the memorabilia.

Some more than others.

It was a great time and we got to hang with our friends. We always go on homeschool day. There are not very many people there at all. And homschoolers get in FREE.. so you gotta love that.
