Animal Kingdom Day

Our first day in Disney was spent at Animal Kingdom.  It was a great way to kick off our Disney fun!  Not too much walking, lots of fun, long, sitting rides.  We love animals – so we enjoyed the safari, the animals and the whole Africa thing!

This was our first day to don our matching Lime Green T’s too – and let me tell you, they were lifesaving!!  It was so easy to spot each other in the throngs of other people!  It was great.  AG opted for another outfit, a new one from her Grammie, but she stayed pretty close to us!

Our most favorite souvenirs that we bought were these great hats on the boys!!  They were adorable, practical and came with 6 PINS!!  More on that in another post, but it was a win-win!!  All the boys got one!!

It was a great day.  We enjoyed at an amazing meal at The Tusker House which was an African Buffet!  I am thinking it was more of an assortment of African and Asian – but it was amazing!!  While eating we were invited to be on a float in the afternoon parade with Mickey!  We were so thrilled and could not wait.  Unfortunately, it was rained out, but we still had a great place to wait out the rain and some great cast members to keep the kids entertained!  (here we are in our parade garb, while waiting on the rain call)

So, here are some pics of our fun day!
