Disney 2013 - part two

We spent our third day at Animal Kingdom. Camp is really into animals...his teachers tell me this all of the time too! :) I knew Animal Kingdom Lodge and Animal Kingdom would be really exciting for him. 
Our first stop of the day was the Kilimanjaro Safari. 

Collins was pumped for our first ride at Animal Kingdom! :)

While riding the safari, the tour guides talk about conservation and saving the animals, etc. 
After we left Animal Kingdom, Camp told us, "We have to share the whole world with all of the animals and the "pollar" bears and tigers and lions and alligators." Bless his little heart!

Camp played a few of the carnival games located in Dino Land.

We got a fast pass to ride the safari for a second time and then went through the Pangani Forest trail.

This trail was great and Camp really enjoyed it.

Checking out the HUGE bullfrog!

Collins waving at his reflection! :)

It was so neat to see the hippos underwater and above water! 

We witnessed two hippos getting angry at each other!! Haha! :) It was very exciting!

Our second safari of the day was just as wonderful and completely different! A giraffe was drinking water right on the side of the road! We could have touched him if we tried!

Pit stop for a Mickey Ice Cream bar!

I thought I'd give Collins a little taste, but he almost ate the entire thing! :) 

I love this picture of Camp...here we are on the train headed to the petting zoo.

Camp would have spent hours just brushing all of the animals. After the petting zoo, we called it a day at Animal Kingdom.

Camp had been asking to swim so we came back to our hotel to spend the rest of the afternoon at the awesome pool!

Camp loved the zero entry!

We all got in the pool and Collins loved the water! 
It was crazy to be swimming in February! 

The pool bar was very convenient! :)

We had reservations at Jiko on Tuesday for dinner.

Camper fell asleep halfway through dinner! :)


We witnessed feeding time from our balcony on our last morning.

We had reservations at Chef Mickey's on Wednesday morning. It was the perfect ending to a perfect trip!

Camp and Collins both loved the characters!

high five for pluto!

When Mickey came to our table, Camp said "Mickey!!! There's Minnie!!" and pointed to Minnie. He did the same thing when Minnie came to our table too. It brought tears to my eyes knowing that Camp thinks these characters are the real deal.

Camp said to Mickey, "I think he really likes you!" Collins loved Mickey!

Camp is showing Minnie his boo boo and asking her to kiss it. 

This looks like Collins is saying "Go away, Minnie! You are for girls!!" :)

What a blast! I loved spending this quality time with my little family and making sweet memories together. We are all counting down the months until our next Disney vacation! 

We'll see you again real soon, Mickey!!

Poor Camper passed out at the dinner table... Burn it out until you can't go anymore! Loved the Animal Kingdom. Do those pets at the petting zoo have the life? Just lay around and have kids brush you all day. And how Animal Kingdomy (is that a word?) did Lane look with her shirt?!?
What a fun, family bonding vacation!
