My family and I are on vacation for a week in the magical world of Disneyworld in Florida…..though it really feels like we are on safari in Africa! We are staying at the amazing Animal Kingdom Lodge. It is an amazing hotel with a 33 acre game sanctuary as art of the experience. We had hoped to catch a glimpse of the Giraffes (Sarah’s current favorite animal) and boy, did we! Both nights we had them eating and laying down just outside out room….less than 50 yds away! We have also a Roan Antelope, some Impalas, and a herd of Zebras…it is so cool! A group of Maribou Storks like to hang out at the little pond and an Ostrich wandered nearby as well.

After a long (all night) but uneventful flight, we settled in to the hotel, had some lunch and then headed to Magic Kingdom for just a couple of hours. Had to keep up the tradition of our first ride being The Haunted Mansion! On my first time to Disneyland *cough* years ago. my first ride was Haunted Mansion. Last year with the family, our first ride was also Haunted Mansion. We decided we would make that our family tradition. Got a great idea for a mini while on the ride…..

Friday was spent at the Typhoon Lagoon Water Park. Wet and wild times….well…I spent most of it in an innertube floating on the Lazy River….ahhhhh…

Saturday was Sarah’s birthday so it was her choice as to where we go. Sooooo, we were off to Animal Kingdom! Even did the Everest Rollar coaster…. more on that on a later post….

Today we spent a couple of hours at Epcot in the morning and then came back to go to the other water park – Blizzard Beasch. Raining a bit, so a water park is a good choice….doesn’t matter if we get wet!

Whoops!, before I forget, the kit for the On a Roll Mini Album (a rolling suitcase with album inside) kits will go up on Tuesday and will start shipping as soon as I get back on Friday. Times will be the usual staggered times of 10am, 4pm, and 7pm Pacific Time (have me phone alarms set to remind me…) There will be two versions – Check In by Kaisercraft and Detour by Bo Bunny. The Bo Bunny Version may ship a day or two later than the other….it is scheduled to ship this week but I am not sure of the exact date. Here are some sneak peek photos in cased you missed it on my last Ustream…

Miss you guys!
