We’re back. Can’t believe that week went by sooooo fast! I have to tell you, this trip was WONDERFUL! The weather was perfect, low 90’s, not so bad humidity for September, and sunny, sunny, sunny. Not one drop of rain! And, no incidents of “goofy people.”
My older Son, Matthew, was suppose to go, but cancelled last minute because of some things going on with his college classes that he couldn’t miss, so I was bummed out about that, but proud that he was responsible enough to get his priorities in line. (Mom, if you are reading, sorry we didn’t tell you. Didn’t want you to get worried about Matthew being home, while you were out of town yourself!:wub:)
The plane was full going there, and we were the lucky ones to have two ACTIVE AND LOUD boys behind us, with the Mom, louder than the boys. The husband tried a couple of times to quiet them down, but I truly believe he gave up half way through. Of course, kicking of the seats was to be included with the screaming all 2 hours and 15 minutes we were in the air. I thought, oh boy, if this is going to be the start of our trip, how is the rest going to be. Well I’ll tell you, we got all the garbage out of the way, because the rest of the trip was great!
We arrived at Animal Kingdom Lodge - Jambo House to the delight of our room being ready, and in the area we requested. It was almost at the end of the longest hallway, but that doesn’t bother us, as its much more quiet and the views are great. We were hungry after getting up so early, so headed out to the Mara for a chicken pita (yummy!) Afterwards, Joey (ds) decided to take a quick nap while Todd and I headed to the parks. This is where I have to confess I honestly can’t remember too much, as I didn’t take notes and left the camera behind in the room. We originally were heading to AK, but ended up at MK and was having a great time. Got a call from Joey, telling us he went to MK. Laughed that we ended up in the same place, found each other, and continued on with the fun.
