We went to Disney World!
I have completed deserted my blog for over a week, but now I am back and am looking forward to a great year! The day after Christmas our family went to Disney World for a week. Yes, it was crazy crowded, but very magical. The decorations were so pretty and festive. We were in the Magic Kingdom on New Year's Eve, and I have never seen so many people in my entire life, but the New Year's Eve fireworks were out of this world!!
Now for a reality check. School is starting back. Time to grow up and be a responsible teacher/mom/wife again. I have been racking my brain trying to think of something "biology related" to write about. I have some ideas for new labs and activities for my classes this semester. As I try them out on my students, I'll pass them along to you.
For now, I have some wonderful photos to share with you. One of our days at Disney was spent at the Animal Kingdom Park. We arrived at opening which was 7 am for the holiday crowds. It was a cool morning, but very sunny. We headed straight for the Kilimanjaro Safari ride. Because of the early time, and the coolness of the early morning, and because it was feeding time, we had some amazing encounters with the animals. Here are some photos for you.
|This giraffe walked right up to our truck |
and practically stuck his head inside!
|The rhino was heading toward the feeding station |
and walked within 10 feet of our bus.
|Is there anything any cuter than a baby elephant??|
|I don't know why, but I just love flamingos.|
I hope that you all had a wonderful holiday season and a very Happy New Year. Here's to a great 2012 with our families and our students. My blog has survived the first year, and I greatly appreciate the support from all of you.
