For our second day in the parks, we headed to Animal Kingdom. We started off the day with the safari trek which was awesome! We even had a giraffe get up close and personal with our jeep.

The girls had a great time seeing all the animals. Even the adults were impressed. It was a little overcast but that was okay. Kerry had been watching the weather and it looked like we were going to get a big storm so we headed over to Yak and Yeti for lunch. We were quickly seated at a table and then the monsoon started. Luckily, we beat the crowd! And we had an awesome lunch. It was the best meal we had all week. We still talk about the yummy food!

I think one of the highlights for Miss H was playing the drums.

We got to see a kangaroo

And a sloth, and an anteater and some cool little sugar gliders. All in one day. All in Virginia.

We got invited to see some cool animals and Miss H was thrilled.

First it was a sloth. She lives in the house and is pretty cool.

Then we got to meet the kangaroo. She was really good with the kids. How many kids (or adults!) can say they have petted a kangaroo?

Then we got to meet the cool anteater. He is the mischievous one in the bunch and wanted all the attention.

I had no idea they could climb.

Miss H liked the sugar gliders because they climbed on her arm. The anteater tried to climb up her leg but he was on the bigger side.

It was a fun day with some fun animals.

Plus we got to bring two books home by the author and owner of the animals!
