Our Disney Trip June 14-21, 2009

We had such a wonderful time at Disney World this year! It was 98 degrees all week, but if you could get over feeling yucky all the time, it was great. We went with our friends and their boys who are the same ages as Matthew and Evan.

If you'll notice in all the pictures, I am missing. I guess always a photographer, never the photographed!!!

These are a couple of pictures of the fireworks over Cinderella's Castle.

There was a thunderstorm one evening and I got lucky enough to capture a lightning bolt!!!! Of course, for this one shot, I took about 500 pictures.

Animal Kingdom was fabulous! I want to go to Africa someday, so I guess this will have to do for now.

They have a new roller coaster called "Expedition Everest" which was great. We are all roller coaster people and this didn't disappoint!

Here are the boys on the train.

Evan working with an ant eater. Did you know that they have 16" tongues? Evan did, and this is how he got to go up and help. He was the only one with the correct answer. Such a smarty!

Ok, remember that I said we were all roller coaster people? Well, that doesn't include a roller coaster that spins like the teacup ride while it is on the tracks! I don't do spinning rides anymore. I guess I'm getting old? Put me on the tallest roller coaster and I'm fine, but not this. I know, I'm a wimp!

Outside the "Dinosaur" ride!

In front of the "Tree of Life". Not the best picture I know, but I was in vacation mode!

The boys with a guy from Africa. He looks pretty scary, but very nice!

This was taken at a gift shop at Epcot. We just went on a ride called "Spaceship Earth". Again, I opted for the tame version because the intense version spun you around like a real astronaut. I've always wanted to be an astronaut but there's that little matter of the spinning thing, darn it.

These are the boys with their friend Ben being silly with the little hats at the gift shop.

Matthew and Evan happy to have their ice-cold slurpees. Remember the 98 degrees? Yes, this was very refreshing!

The boys (Evan and Matthew with their friends Ben and Sam), got chosen out of the crowd for a comedy show skit. They were acting goofy and aparantly, this makes for good entertainment in a comedy skit.

These are pictures from Disney's Hollywood Studios. They have a version of American Idol where the winning contestant actually wins an audition in front of Simon, Randy and Paula. It was a lot of fun and the winning girl was amazing!
Evan is singing his heart out, but I don't think he'll make it! LOL.

The guys at a stunt show! It was great. They showed how they film car stunts and even set a guy on fire.

The boys in front of the Fantasia hat!
