Disney's Animal Kingdom!

I'm a year older but clearly not any more mature! :) For my 29th birthday, Jake and I went to Disney's Animal Kingdom (the whole get in free on your birthday deal "almost" makes it affordable...almost) and got to play all day! It was so much of those days where your face and cheeks hurt at the end of it from smiling so much!

I think Animal Kingdom is my new favorite park. Look at these fun guys who helped me celebrate the start of the last year of my 20s!

This little guy had enough sense to seek cover from the rain:

I, sadly, was not quite as sensible...which you can see quite clearly by the awesome hair shown below.

And that's the only picture I can actually painstakingly straightened although naturally curly hair pretty much overwhelmed every picture beyond this point. Gorgeous.

Since I'm so slack on posting lately, and haven't even posted pictures from our little day trip to Mount Dora! It was super cute, and Deacon as usual had the time of his life meeting the locals at the dog park and wrecking shop in the local dog bakery. I had to pick my jaw up off the floor not once, but twice when we were told how well-behaved Deacon was at the fabulous little place we grabbed lunch. Deacon is many things but "well-behaved" isn't usually one of them!
He was quite pleased with himself...

I wonder if he'd be so well-behaved after a couple rounds at Mount Dora's monthly "yappy hour." Might just have to try that out sometime soon!

The Animal Kingdom looks fun. We'll have to bring the kiddos when they get older. Happy birthday -- you'll soon have to change your "About Me" to "30-something"!
