Someone even gave GO her own banana to eat, luckily, she was still in her pajamas.
Wait....what happened to GO's cute outfit? Seriously....enough with the vomiting all over your cute outfit, kid!
Skies were suppose to be sunny, but we brought rain gear just in case. Then we made the VERY long journey into the park. Not that the walk is a long one, but they have cast members stationed every 20 feet with a bug/insect/critter/skeleton and chat with the children. And we had to stop and talk to EVERY SINGLE ONE - because, if you know B10, it's impossible for him to walk past.
This lady had a rhino horn. (B10 already knew that.)
This guy had a snake skeleton. (B10 had a long discussion about it.)
This woman had horns of the cute critter in the bush. (B10 learned the difference between antlers and horns.)
And this woman just wanted B10 to go away. She made the mistake of trying to "outsmart" him involving spiders. When she got to the part, trying to correct him, that ALL creatures with 8 legs were arachnids (emphasis hers), HE explained that that wasn't exactly true, they also had to have an exoskeleton, because an octopus has 8 legs and is not a spider.
No, I did NOT laugh where he could hear me.
After getting inside the park, we made a quick stop to meet Pooh Bear, Tigger and Eyeore. By that time, GO was worn out and ready for her nap.
B10, CW and I were all excited about Expedition Everest! Wicked cool rollercoaster, but the first time we rode it, CW and I were in the front and that was SCARY!
He was still feeling poorly, so we made our way to Rafki's Planet Watch (by train), it's a backstage area, where the vets work and you can even watch surgeries if you come at the right time.
CW hung out at the KidStop area, while B10 and I took GO inside to look at the animals. Jiminy Cricket was there taking photos, which we had to get.
B10 really wanted to see the show. This is his face BEFORE I made him stop answering every question.
(He, correctly, pointed out that no one else was answering questions at all, but still...) GO liked the show, at least the first part, but we weren't able to stay for the entire thing.
We did get to see a small barn owl and a Scarlet Macaw.
It was time for our lunch reservation, at Tusker House (African fare), though Hubby was still feeling poorly. We arrived, and B10 took GO and helped her to dance on the table to pass the time and keep her happy.
That worked for a bit, but Hubby kept feeling worse. Finally, as we were being seated, he also yaked in a bush. Thus bringing our vomiting count to twice today.
The food was incredible, so I was really sad that Hubby did not get to enjoy it. He held GO and nibbled on bread (she was falling back asleep).
B10, CW and I especially enjoyed the desserts.
This was our awesome hostess, Monnish, who took care of us AND made sure that Hubby was feeling okay (bringing him water and checking on him).
The boys and I rode Expedition Everest one more time, Hubby decided to wait on the ground with GO, before we had pizza for dinner.
Then it was home to the cabin to wait for our "BIG SURPRISE" to arrive!
