Day 2 & 3: Animal Kingdom & Hollywood Studios

                                                                 Misty as herself.
                                                 Indiana Jones Stunt Show.
                                                    Me and Pip--"Twighlight Zone Tower of Terror" behind us.
                                                             Triceratops Twirl
                                                   Everest in background.
                                                                       Africa for lunch.
                                                          Jiminey Cricket and girls
                                                  King Louis kissing Pip.
                                                  Mistaya, Kyran and me on "Expedition Everest"
                                                      Kyran at the LEGO store.
Pics are not ready to download--some thing's a muck with the camera--so I shall write until pic posting time.
Hollywood Studios-- a cool day for Florida--a bit of a nasty wind despite the brilliant sun shine and blue sky. I so wish I had brought a hoodie on this trip! The Muppet Movie adventure was very entertaining for everyone. Gotta love those 2 old men puppets and Miss Piggy, of course. Star Wars ride was also enjoyable. Although Kyran got a little motion sick after sitting through 2 rides in a row. Pip is too short for most rides so I wait with a special pass and when the kids are done the ride we switch off and Peter stays with Pip (or Kyran or Mist) and then I get to go right on with up to 3 guests. 
Indiana Jones stunt show was fun. 
Animal Kingdom--an adventure extraordinaire! I so stupidly let the kids go on the rapid ride first thing (the line was empty and no need for a fastpass). Hello Melissa! There was a reason the line was empty so early in the cool morning! They got completely drenched! The morning was cool in the shade (the entire Kingdom is under a jungle). I ended up having to purchase sweat pants and hoodies and flip flop for all the girls. Kyran was fine--so he said. But that boy swims in Kootney Lake for 8 months of the year. He seems impermeable to any damp cold conditions.
However, they finally warmed up in time for the Pip to have a little tinkle accident while she napped in the stroller. She ended up a bare bottomed tot in Misty's big T-shirt with the sleeves rolled up. We did manage to buy a diaper at the baby change station. 
Animal Kingdom was tons of fun with a high light being the Dinosaur ride (I smiled so much my cheeks ached!) and Mount Everest--Mist and I were terrified! KW loved it!
Peter joined us both days just around 1 PM. Food is quite tasty at the restaurants at Disney and much more healthy than 4 years ago. But pricey to be sure.
We went to the Rain Forest Cafe for supper and Downtown Disney in the evening. The kids loved the LEGO store. Today we are off to Blizzard Beach--as soon as Peter arrives from the conference.

Your holiday seems to be passing by quickly. Hard to believe it will be your last day tomorrow. It sure looks like a holiday that will go down as one of the best!

Just to bring you kids back to reality I'm letting you know that I am making a supper tonight to have when you return home, so save your massive hungers and just snack on that expensive airplane food. I hope none of you caught a chill on those water slides. And once again I'm keeping my eyes peeled for the pippi metro to no avail.

The Pippi purse is too big and more importantly too valuable to take on the rides. And since I am alone with the children for 1/2 days or more, I cannot risk leaving it with the stroller to get stolen. So, the Pippi purse is reserved for shopping trips--and I don't take pictures of those.
