Day 2 - Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom

On Day 2, we started out at the Animal Kingdom. I forgot to bring my camera that day, so I didn't get any pictures. (although Rich has some pictures from that day on his phone)
We thoroughly enjoyed our day at Animal Kingdom! We especially loved the jungle safari ride! We were close enough to a baby giraffe to reach out and touch it. It was so much fun to see all the animals! We had a brief afternoon rain, Rosalie napped in the stroller for 2 hours, we packed our lunch and ate it there. Martin absolutely loved Expedition Everest. Aaron rode it with me, and didn't love it. He said that it was terrifying. The children enjoyed watching the parade in the afternoon. It was a great day at the Animal Kingdom!
We left around dinner time and took about a 2 hour break to eat dinner at the townhouse. Then we headed back to the parks ... this time to the Magic Kingdom!

Once we got to the Magic Kingdom, we headed straight toward Tomorrowland and rode everything that we could ride there ... starting with the Buzz Lightyear ride. Martin loved Space Mountain, Aaron chose not to ride it, Jonathan would have ridden if he'd been tall enough ... so the rest of rode the People Mover. It was a fun night that went by too quickly! We found a place to watch the fireworks and ate some ice cream while we waited.

Rosalie was an absolute trooper! She stayed awake as long as she could to take it all in. She was absolutely amazed by the castle - and shouted with great joy and glee every time it changed color! Her expressions were priceless on this trip! I will never forget her joyful exclamations! Finally, on our way out of the park, (at about 11PM) she could no longer keep her eyes open. She fell asleep hard ... I had to take this sweet picture of her on her Daddy's shoulder.

Another great day at Disney!
