Swiper sighting at Disney

We were out the door this morning at about 8:30 so that we could arrive at the Animal Kingdom shortly before it opened.  Per the recommendation of pretty much everyone we have spoken to, we went straight the African safari. It was fantastic.  The only problem was the my camera lense was too foggy to get any good pictures.  The safari took us through the African plains where along the way we saw huge crocodiles, elephants, giraffes, a lion, gigantic hippos and rhinos, and many others.  It was a great way to start off the day. 

Lleyton had his eyes peeled during the entire safari, as he was determined to find Swiper amidst all of the other animals.  As we rounded a corner heading towards the giraffes, to the delight of the family in front of us he exclaimed "I see Swiper!  Swiper, no swiping!"

Other highlights included our time spent at the petting zoo. 

Here is Lleyton giving one lucky sheep an eye exam.

Here is Parker showing Lleyton how to properly pet an animal.

It is really hot here today, as it was yesterday, so we took every opportunity we could to get inside to cool off while posing for pictures. 

The boys certainly enjoyed the Animal Kingdom, but I am not sure Lleyton enjoyed our time there anymore than the time he spent jumping on Mommy and Daddy's bed before they left.  You be the judge.

We are now waiting for Lleyton to wake up from his nap so that we can head down for our maiden voyage on the pirate ship in the pool.  The boys have been looking foward to swimming for weeks.  Lleyton has been asking any stranger that is willing to listen to him if they would like to go swimming with us. I don't know who to expect to see when we get down to the pool, the server from BW3's, the retired couple sitting behind us on the tram, and/or the guy that had the good fortune of sitting next to our little man on the plane yesterday.  All were personally invited to join us.
