Very happy our camera has an action mode and will take many consecutive picture in a row. I was able to get some good shots of the animals on the 'safari'.
Here is a small collection of the animals we saw:
(oh blogger why do you make it so hard to tile photos)

|Elephant (Evie's Favorite)|
Evie had a BLAST on the Safari. She loved looking at all the animals. Her favorite were the Elephants of course since they have a nice nose :) This is one of my favorite pictures because I get to remember the moment. Was trying to take a picture but Evie was having fun and doing the elephant arm raise. The ride is long, but 100% worth it, kids or not!
After the Safari ride, we walked around to look at monkeys. Evie especially wanted to see Gorillas. On our way there she had fun looking at fish, birds, turtles, and just having fun!

We stopped at this big area where there were no animals. But this guy there gave Evie some coloring pages. Which this girl loved! We spent a good 10 minutes coloring. Daddy colored with Evie, Mommy colored with Evie, and Papou colored with Evie. This really nice guy who works there (do not remember where from Africa he is from) made Eve the cutest beaded bracelet! She wore it on and off all day!
Then we were off to see the gorillas! I don't have any good pictures. But the gorilla pooped, and went in a corner and ate it... Seriously. He picked it up and ate it! They said this is something gorillas in captivity do since they do not need to mark their territory. Was a wonderful sight.
Then it was lunch time and we at at the Flame Tree Grill (BBQ). Was so tasty. Just what we wanted on a hot day. The pulled pork was tasty. Nick's ribs were good. YUM! Some of the best food at that park I think!
After we decided to take it easy and go see some characters. She saw Balou and King Louie from Jungle Book (has never seen the movie). Evie thought the bear was the bear from Brave. So had to meet them. When we got to them, they had to go get a quick snack (love how disney tells kids that when they need a small water snack break). Came back and Evie got to meet them! At first she was a little afraid, I think because how tall they were. Her Papou picked her up and she was able to meet them.
Next was Minnie and Mickey! She knew who Minnie was and ran straight to her. She was not sure about Mickey. Most likely the outfit.
After that we knew Evie was tired. It was hot. Time for a nap! During her nap, Evie and I left her with Yia Yia and Papou and headed to Epcot! We headed to the World Showcase mostly since we knew Evie would not enjoy it much.
We met everyone at the Tangerine Cafe for dinner. Was excited because they have Shawarma. If you have not seen the latest Avengers movie, they talk about it a lot in it. The chicken Shawarma was only OK, very grisly. I am not a fan of lamb (animal is so cute!), but Nick said that was much better. The hummus was good as was the couscous. Should have gotten the falafel wrap. I love falafel! On the way out of the park we stopped at France to pick up some pastries! We did not leave the park till almost 9pm! Went back to the hotel and CRASHED. Well Nick and I did go out for another drink that evening (same as the day before), but I fell asleep quick.
