No you can't have too many giraffe photos... they are beautiful creatures...

The problem I think with the Disney Bagels is that they're more like a roll with a hole... a bagel is supposed to have a chewiness to it... the texture is different...

Really cute photos of the Es & K out in front of Dinosaur... very spontaneous and natural looking...

Glad you made it to the rope drop... Starts the day off with a bang... (so does all that coffee... takes one to know one & I noticed those full mugs were followed up at that bakery with more... that sounds like the coffee plan I'm on too...

Let's go on a Safari, con't.

Sorry for the gap! Let’s finish this safari!

Continued from previous

Enough Giraffes, what about the mighty elephant?













Oops, can't go there!





And...more. He isn't moving much is he? Or she.

























Bye bye elephants, time to move on, big and majestic as you are you were a little boring today.

Ilove these guys











Continued in next post (really!)

Let's finish a Safari!

Continued from previous

Somebody's sleeping!









Someone else is in the middle of the road



At least this guy isnt being picked on by the birds









Love those horns!







Are you ready for your close up?









I mean REALLY close up?



The classic back of the head& No King, only the Queen and shes too busy to say hello.







The mighty...Ostrich!









No more little red&...and apparently I hear now, no more zebra's either. Failed assimilation. They didn't play nice.

Bummer



It was a great Safari, one of our better ones in terms of overall animal viewing.

Up next, a never done is done!

Thanks Sheree, there were a ton of giraffes out, no shortage that's for sure. Finally got the rest of the safari up lol.

I really go through phases on the pictures on the Safari, definitely took more than my share, as did the rest of the crew! It is never the same ride twice, that's the beauty of it.

I don't know what is its about that ride in particular but it cracks us up! Okay, Kendall and I. It scared the daylights out of Eric for a while and it isn't he or Evan's favorite still. They were not thrilled with it being the first ride of the day but I think that this time, once on, they actually enjoyed it.

Agreed, they are all kinds of wrong. Though honestly the E's might have been ok with it, they eat the icky ones from the grocery store, Seattle is a hard place to get a good bagel, Panera is about it and I'm the only one who seems to care, the rest will eat the Thomas or Sara Lee (which is likely what AK had) or whatever.

Between that and the Chester and Hester and dump shop pics you can tell everyone was in a fabulous mood and having a good time. It was a great morning.

Yep, cup in the room, cup on the road, cup at the park. 3 cups. Pretty much our daily norm.

(Wow, now that I'm quoting your post I can see that your photobucket links are huge...is that due to the new PB or your filing scheme? )

Yeah, I was disappointed that it didn't work out, I was looking forward to that new area.

They are RIDICULOUS! I was convinced they were wrong, it's like they've double coded them and there is a shorter way to do it (which is how they were doing it before) but that would have been way more work for me. Part of it is filing scheme but certainly not all ir even most of it. I'm hoping they shorten up.

Me too, interesting that with all the buzz about it happening...the removal was very on the down low.

RE: the photobucket links - they ARE huge! I thought they were wrong and deleted and re-did it twice! Oh well, I guess that's the new deal for now.
I hate change.

Wow you got lots of great Safari photos! It looks like it was a beautiful day too

Everyone seems to be having problems with the new photobucket And I hate how the free accounts have such limited storage now.

I went back and looked at previous links to see and they definitely changed the code and made it much more complicated than it used to be. It used to be the image code would be something like this [ IMG ] URL.jpg [ / IMG] And now it does the full URL path, then the IMG like before, and closes the URL

So it's listing the full file path twice. Arguably one could go in and code it like the above shorter version and it works (Deleting the part before [ img ] at the front and after [ / img ] at the end), I tried it. BUT then you are manually adjusting every link you copy over. UGH and no thanks. I decided after doing like you did, starting over to test, that the bulk export outweighed some of the major annoyance of the super long file path.

I finally caught up, but on my phone so i couldn't see all the photos. Odd.

First, pepperplate - its a recipe storage and sharing site. I keep the app on my phone and nook, and upload recipes oncomputer. I now always have my favorite recipes with me. (That was a question back in March!)

Your disembarking day..ugh! But what a great way to surprise the kids! I noticed what a great menu they had in Mara in February.

Your standard view. Wow! Amazing! I liked the verandah comparison. I wonder if Jambo house verandahs are smaller because they started as regular resort rooms and then were converted?

Poor Jeff all that running, rain, and no beer. Hope the drink at the Wave made up for it! The fireworks looked great.

Cant wait to hear how Kendell enjoys her tour. The AK day looks good so far.

It was a beautiful day and a great morning!

I will say PB has gotten better in the last week and over time, it has improved, they just launched that beta way before it was ready and they know it. They put a cap on the pro accounts too which no one is happy about.

I am always in for a good safari! Thanks for all the pictures.
Mingos happen to be dear to my heart, as well, because my sweet Bella adores them.

Looks like you really got some spectacular animal viewing on the safari. Although you found the elephants boring, it seems like you might have been there longer than normal. We always seem to zoom right by them and I'm lucky if I can snap more than 3 pictures before they are out of view.

That is really sad about the zebras. They were almost done building the enclosure when we were there in June.

The close-up rhino pictures are AWESOME!!!
