Disney - day 4

Today we went to Animal Kingdom.  I'd never been there before, so I didn't really know what to expect, but it's a big park and was lots of fun! 

The Tree of Life
Lee, Anna Grace, Sarah and I started the day with a ride on Expedition Everest.  This one definitely gets your blood pumping!  Here are the survivors of this awesome roller coaster with Mt. Everest in the background.
We watched Nemo and The Lion King shows while we were there and they were both fabulous!  It was really cold the day we were at Animal Kingdom, so we were extra thankful that the shows were inside.

Pooh and his friends were all dressed up for Christmas!

Sarah and I, ready to ride the Triceratop Spin
Minnie was all dressed for Christmas too! 
We finished our day at Animal Kingdom with an African Safari, which was really fun!  When we finished with that we had to run - seriously run! - across the park to the exit so we could make it back to EPCOT for our dinner reservations at the Coral Reef.

The food was fabulous!  We feasted on steaks and seafood (scallops were awesome!) and the kids loved finishing the meal with hot fudge sundaes!

We finished the evening with EPCOT's Candlelight Processional.  We just about froze to death, but the show was wonderful.  Trace Adkins was the celebrity narrator who told the Christmas story.  He has such a nice voice for storytelling!  The music was beautiful and the choir did an awesome job.  Got to hear a beautiful version of my favorite Christmas song, O Holy Night!
After the show we were headed to the exit and I heard someone calling my name.  It was Amy!  Eric and the boys were back at the hotel, but Amy and Hanna were spending some girl time together.   The kids were surprised to see Hanna.  We hadn't mentioned to them that they were in town or that we were having dinner with them tomorrow night.  We're good at keeping surprises these days! 

More fun to come tomorrow!  :)
