I think I'd have to cut it in half. It has to be mooing for me, too!

OMG, back just in time for THE ROAST!!! Looks delicious, just the way I like it. My DH would say it would need to go back into the oven for a few more minutes

Love your pictures. Hoping to convince my DH to stay at least one time at AKV. My DD and I stayed there right before she started her CP. We really enjoyed our stay there.

I think it is a bit of both. It is very hard to get decent cuts of beef over here. The most common cuts for roasts over here are Topside and Silverside, which you would both classify as round.

I wasn't sure at first if the phrase "You killed it with the roast" was a good thing or not! Thanks! I miss Kidani too, but looking at the castle out the window is not bad either!

The zebra announcement made me belly laugh, sorry It totally reminded me of something. Mom and I like to get together for movies on a regular basis and we were seeing X-Men First Class in the theater. I'm hoping you've seen it or this won't be as funny. Well at the end right before Erik first announces himself as Magneto, mom in the most serious of voices says 'MAGENTA!'. I can't tell you how much I laughed I was so amused.

Love seeing Fran smiling, it warms my heart
Between the chatter and updates, I'm not surprised you got five pages behind! I think a small update is in order.

This is what I would tell Angela. I would seriously make two roasts and start his part an hour to half an hour earlier than mine!

Just in the nick of time! I am blessed that she likes her meat nice and rare, this was a tiny bit underdone, for her, but she doesn't complain. I gave her the more cooked piece.

Very interesting! I guess we are blessed living in California. I remember when I used to visit Leshaface's town, I would smell the cows and think "yuck". But the fact that those cows are there and so close is one of the reasons that we get such lovely cuts of beef, as well as so much other wonderful farm foods! I will remember to be thankful for that!

The next morning I was awake by about 5:30AM (which was a little better than the previous night). We were going to try and make rope drop. I made Fran one of her mini bagels and cream cheese and I had an English Muffin and some coffee. We both had a glass of orange juice. Sorry no pics, it just wasnít that exciting. We made it to the bus stop by 8:15 and were at the park even before they were letting guests in.



We waited around for a few minutes before they started letting guests in.







And there we were at Rope Drop! I took a picture of the rope to prove it!











Soon we were caught up in the mele of folks trying to make the first Safari ride.



We go to a special section and Fran and I were the first to arrive in our section. They made us wait for more people, so we didnít get our own private safari vehicle, although for a while I was hoping!



Eventually we got started. Now at this point in our trip we have been on the safari twice. I am going to combine the pictures so that there is only one long safari in this report. Youíll have to click back to this post to see the animals again when we ride it a second time!



First are the Okapi and some other critters













That's it for now, we have another rope drop to make!

Fran actually got that one, she has the DSLR with the telephoto lens.

First along with about 50 other people. The rope was a good 30-50ft long!

We have been surprisingly morning folks this trip. I guess when there is something worthwhile to do!

I'll cook dinner for everyone sometime, if I ever get the chance!

I don't know if you remember, but you were very helpful when I was planning my trip to VGC and researching the best place to buy steaks to grill.

Living near "cow country" does have its advantages.
