We spent the morning on the beach before making the trek back home...and of course stopped at Cracker Barrel for lunch. What a fun filled week we had. So blessed to make so many wonderful memories with all of my sweet boys this week! !-- Site Meter XHTML Strict 1.0 -->
We headed down to Clearwater beach on Thursday morning. It was only a little over an hour away, but it honestly felt like 10 with two tired toddlers. Once we got there though, the boys lit right back up and had a BLAST playing in the sand and water...definitely little beach bums! Then, we headed off to dinner on the beach, and of course ice cream ;o)
We had planned on going to Magic Kingdom for two days, but since we were able to do everything that we wanted to do on Tuesday we decided to go to Animal Kingdom on Wednesday. The boys are animal lovers, so we knew it would be a hit...and after opening and closing down Magic Kingdom we were all a little tired and knew we couldn't make it until 10pm again (Animal Kingdom closes at 6pm). So, off we went! Of course the boys woke up early again and told us that the sun was up...lol! Waiting to go into Animal Kingdom...and practicing their roars! On the Safari...this was my favorite part... Seeing our favorite friends again... Watching the Lion King musical...this was truly amazing. I've included a small video clip below. It was beyond any Broadway performance as far as talent and theatrics. Worth going to Animal Kingdom just for this! Coleman snuck in a quick snooze before the action started.... We also watching Finding Nemo the musical... And watched the parade....we were lucky enough to get front row seats again, and the boys got some extra lovin' from some characters here, too. I think it's safe to say that Animal Kingdom wore these little buddies out... Then we headed to the Rainforest Cafe for dinner that night. It was not as cool as the T. Rex. restaurant, but the birds and animals did come to life every 15 minutes which the boys loved.
