Disney fun!

Whew! We just got back from the fantastical Disney World yesterday. Can I just tell you how much I love that place?? I have been so many times as an adult and I just can't seem to get enough. The only downside this time was that I seemed to be so tired. Of course, Disney is all about walking in the heat and there seemed to an infestation of "lovebugs" while we were there. Has anyone ever been to Florida during lovebug season? It is a complete infestation! Seriously, I have never seen so many bugs in my life! The air was actually thick with these things! Luckily for us, they were only bad on the first day we were there, which was Wednesday, and they thinned out by afternoon. From what we were told they usually arrive later in October and they are like that for several weeks. Nice.

So, I should probably talk about the actual fun that I had and not the icky bugs, huh. Well, we stayed at the Beach Club Resort. Thanks D&R! We were there with my aunt and uncle, my brother Joe and DH. We had so much fun! I don't have the pictures with me, but we went to the Magic Kingdom first and Mickey met us at the door for a picture. I have so many pictures with the characters... I can never seem to have enough. The next day we went to Animal Kingdom, which is definitely in the top two of my favorite parks there. Animals are cute!

Here is DH and I posing in from on the new Expedition Everest. That's the giant mountain that they built with a really cool roller coaster ride in it... at least that's what I heard. I chickened out and waited for them in the gift shop.

Here is a picture of the Tree of Life.

Here is a picture of a cute littel bird that was kind enough to pose for DH in the bird of enclosure. As you can see my new camera rocks!

OK, we did go to Epcot the next day, which is my other very favorite park. They have a new ride called Soarin' that was really cool. Not only did you get to fly over California, but it included smell'o'vision as well! The other cool ride is Mission Space, this ride is so intense that they now have the easy baby ride if you don't want to go on the full force one... Joe, DH, and I went on the REAL ride!

Here is DH and I with Chip 'n Dale at Epcot.

Last, but not least, here is the super friendly squirrel friend that we made in France (Epcot). This guy knew how to get some pastry and cake from everyone. He would come right up to your shoe. I actually thought he was going to crawl right up onto one of my shoes while we were there. So cute! Of course, my luck he would bite me and I would end up with rabies or something. Suffice it to say, I fed the little guy, but there was no petting.

I think that's about it. We had a fabulous time and can't wait to go again!

How could you forget about the Enchanted Tiki Room "under new management"? - Can't believe you did not have a link to that!

I used to live in FL! Lovebugs come out in force every May and Sept. It's fabulous. Did I mention that they are like superglue on your car?

Can I ask a potentially stupid question? What in the world does DH stand for? I see that you keep using it to refer to Joe. I am guessing it's secret Judi code for darling husband or something like that.
