Finally I had a weekend where I managed to accomplish something. There seemed to be so much left undone before our Disney trip, and I was starting to panic, not knowing how I would finish it all. Saturday, Rod and I made picnic beans for granddaughter Jessica's birthday/going away party. She leaves on Thursday for Youngstown State (in Ohio). I don't know who miss who more, her missing the little ones, or them missing her. Last weekend, Jessica took Izzy to Build-a-Bear and had her build a bunny - a very pink bunny. Jess built a cow. Izzy's bunny wears an Sleeping Beauty dress, a crown, and . . . hot pink, glittery, high top tennis shoes. And inside, is a squeezie button that plays a recorded message from Jess to Izzy -- "I love you Izzy-Boo". And inside Jess's cow, a button that plays Izzy's voice saying, "I love you Sissy Jessie". What a neat idea!!
Mrs. Potato Head. I love her, she keeps Mr. prepared for everything by shoving what he needs (and doesn't need) up his "Oh my gosh I can't print that word". And finally bottom right is my choice for our Animal Kingdom day. Centered is the Tree of Life. If you've never been to Disney you can't appreciate how beautiful the Tree of Life is. It is a 14-story, 50-foot wide sculpted tree, which is the centerpiece of Animal Kingdom.
All around this magnificent sculpture are animals, amazing animals. This is just one photo and you can't imagine how many animals are on this tree. I could look at this tree for hours, but nobody would wait on me. Also on the Animal Kingdom shirt is the Everest Mountain which houses the roller coaster in Animal Kingdom, the safari vehicle from the Kilimanjaro Safari ride, and the dinosaur from the Dinosaur adventure. So, now the shirts are done and I'm a little closer to being ready to go.
