We all slept later than we had planned, but after traveling and staying up a bit too late last night, it didn't surprise us. We had originally planned to go to Magic Kingdom today, but when we realized it was Sunday, we decided it would probably be a bit crowded so we opted to hit Animal Kingdom instead. It wasn't bad - I think the longest we waited for a ride was 30 minutes. We saw the It's Rough to Be a Bug show first. The 3 youngest left in tears. They're traumatized for life. I can just see them telling their therapists 20 years from now, "...and then my parents took me to this evil bug show in Disney World and I haven't been the same since..."
The highlight for the little kids was this flying triceratops ride (like the Dumbo ride). They went on it 5 times and smiled from ear to ear each time. :) Austin, Jackson, Joe and I all braved Expedition Everest. That was one fun roller coaster! Yeti, yeti, yeti, yeti, yeti! (Sorry, I just had a Backyardigans moment.) Austin, Savannah, Lexi and I loved the Dinosaur ride. It freaked me out the first time, but I went a second time and it was pretty cool. You know, if you like whipping around corners in the dark while flesh-eating dinosaurs chase you and meteorites rain down on you.
We also saw Finding Nemo the Musical because, according to Austin, a billboard stated it was a "must see show", therefore we must see it. It was pretty good. Brooklyn fell asleep before the show started and Clay was getting a little bored at that point so he kept playing with Brooklyn's hair and arm while she snoozed. What are big brothers for?
We decided to make it an early day and left the park by 5:30. We let the kids swim for a little bit and now everyone's getting ready for bed. We want to get up early tomorrow so we don't miss one minute of family fun at WallyWorld!
