Lions and Tigers and...

Ostrichs, oh my!

LOL! I was delighted to see this hilarious photo as I scanned through the 300+ photos from African Lion Safari last Tuesday. Don't you think that it would make a PERFECT card?

We had a great time! Our hotel was very nice and the kids couldn't wait to jump into the indoor pool! We set up my camera on timer and *tried* to get a family photo... tried, being the operative word!!

And of course, we had to get the prerequisite goofy shot!

We went out to Kesley's for dinner on Monday night and when we got back to the hotel, headed straight for the pool! Both kids LOVE the water! Connor, being his typical extroverted self, met a couple of kids from Michigan and played with them for the most part.

We woke up on Tuesday to gloomy skies! Luckily, by check out time, the sun was trying to peek through the clouds so we headed on our way. We took the tour bus as soon as we got there, giggling at the monkeys' antics, watching in awe as the lioness chomped on a huge bone, and catching a glimpse of the elephants bathing.

We stopped for lunch and then headed to the Birds of Prey Flying Demonstration. We had plans to hit the Elephant RoundUp after that, but Aili was tired and Connor had energy to burn!

So we headed to the Misumu Bay Wet Play area - WOW! Aili had fallen asleep on the way to the water park, so I sat with her and took photos of Connor. Have I mentioned that he loves the water!?!?

Aili awoke just as we were leaving the water park. They had a fantastic toddler area, with little wading pools and fountains - she would have loved it! Next time!

We didn't get home until 10pm and the kids were exhausted (as were we!) But what fun!!

Thanks for reading!
