More Disney photos!
I realized I still have lots of Disney photos to share with you! In no particular order, here are some of my favorites from the trip:
How pretty is this spot? It's part of the zoo area in the Animal Kingdom (not pictures: tigers!)
S was WAY into the street performers at Disney. We enjoyed this Japanese drumming show.
Beer glasses anyone?
Can you sense a theme here? ha!
Since we keep kosher, we couldn't eat out so easily, so we were super excited to order drinks. This Shirley Temple was the perfect accompaniment to lunch by the pool!
I had a lot of fun photographing this sheep in the Animal Kingdom.
Can you tell? if only all of my subjects were this cooperative.
The safari was definitely one of the highlights of the trip.
The Aisa section of Animal Kingdom was full of unique photo-ops, like this vase....
and this bicycle.....
and these beautiful paper banners!
Us having fun together:)
And loved these masks at Epcot!
Some highlights of the trip:
Skipping our dinner plans on the last night to spend more time touring the "world" in Epcot. We spent an hour at a pub in England, listening to a piano performer who made songs up on the spot.
On the very last afternoon, we packed our bags, checked out, and hit the pool. We went down the water slide at least ten times and just soaked up the sun. It was magical.
Every night after the parks, we'd go to the hot tubs after dinner. It was fun to meet random people that way!
One night it was raining like crazy, so we watched a Harry Potter DVD and ate lunch on the bed in the hotel room. Not very Disney-like, but it totally hit the spot:)
What's YOUR favorite vacation memory?
And on the topic of fairy-tale, magical adventures, anyone else tune in to the Royal Wedding this past weekend?
Even though I enjoyed watching it, I felt a bit unsettled afterward. As I'm writing this, my life feels very un-anchored, like a buoy just bobbing in the water and waiting for something to happen. For a baby or a job to materialize, for the feeling of confidence and excitement for the future that I used to feel so strongly. I'm not sure why I've felt this way lately (or maybe I do--crazy hormone-inducing medications, anyone?), but I really envied Kate as I watched the wedding. I envied the feeling of being chosen, of being significant, that she must have felt on that day.
I haven't felt very significant lately, in many ways. But I know I have the power to change that.
And I'm going to start today.
