We Are Animals

So being Floridians now, Levi J. had been to Disney twice before his second birthday.  But I was so excited to take him on this trip (visits four and five for him), thinking this was going to be the first time he really truly enjoyed it.

And he did!!

He calls Mickey "Mimi!"
 
He *loved* it.  So much so that by 9:00 pm on our second full day of Disney, he and Piper were bouncing off the walls shouting "More more more!!"

We got a great Groupon deal for a two-room condo in Orlando, just enough room for four Brimhalls, three Bakers, and two Almeidas.  Day one, Animal Kingdom and day two, Magic Kingdom!

There is an over abundance of pictures, so I'll just post Animal Kingdom pics today.  But I'll keep them coming, don't you worry.

Unfortunately, Lexi was the photographer.

I hadn't been to Animal Kingdom for over 10 years, and was totally surprised at how fun it was!  We had a blast.  
 
Mt. Everest in the background
 
Expedition Everest was definitely an awesome ride (I'm sorry to say it blows the Matterhorn out of the water, no joke), as was the safari and the dinosaur time travel one. 

 Baby Claire!
Animal Kingdom wasn't too terribly hot, but still pretty dang humid.  Note the glowing faces.


 Piper (and Bryan) enthralled by the safari

Hippos!
 
 
 Look at little Levi's happy face!
 

Pumbaa!



 Daddy Levi got in on the action, too.
 Aww...gross. ;)

The uncles taking the tots on a Jeep expedition.  Piper can't wait!

Poor baby Claire.  She did so well most of the time, but other times...this.

Impromptu dance class  Dorks. ;)

When Piper met the dog from Up, things got a little close.  And awkward.  She may have kissed his tongue.

This is a little more normal.  Whew.


And back to weird.  Kissing cousins!

The Boss!

Riding the choo-choo.
 
I get scared of the animatronic creatures.  Levi apparently does too.

 The whole gang! 
 
By this last picture, we were hot, sweaty, rained on, and exhausted.  We should have taken a good group shot at the beginning of the day rather than the end.  My smile definitely looks a little like a grimace.  But we had a fantastic time!  And we rode rides until they closed the park down!  Boo yeah.  That's how you do Disney, even with two year olds.

  1. I actually think she licked the tongue. Even more awkward...
