Animal Kingdom

On our second day in Florida, we went to the Animal Kingdom. My family had left the day before to drive down to Naples, and they pulled into Orlando around 6 in the morning to crash our hotel room. :) We convinvced them a few hours later to come to the park with us and we got to spend the day there with them. Also our friends, the Roberts family, drove over from Gainesville to hang out with us at the park. We hadn't seen them in over 2 years, so it was fun to spend some time with them.

Right when we got to the park, Rafiki was saying hi to everyone, so we had our picture taken with him. Téa was not very interested in him. She hadn't minded the characters the day before, but something about Rafiki scared her.

The kids got to ride some fun kiddie rides.

Amya played the bongos with her friends Julianna and Ashley.

Here's a group shot of all of us.

Robert, my Dad, Julia and Ellen on the river rapids ride. They got soaked!

We went out to eat with the Roberts' after the park at a restaurant called Jungle Jim's. I have fond memories of this restaurant. When we would go on temple trips, we always used to eat at this restaurant after the temple. So I wanted to make sure I went while we were there.

We had a really good time at Animal Kingdom. While I wouldn't say it was the best park we went to, it was definitely fun to be able to go with (almost) my whole family and spend time with them there.
