Disneyland Day

It’s no secret that both NY and I love Disneyland. It’s a family thing. At any given time we might send or recieve a family text message: “It’s a Disneyland day!” Our Disneyland days have been limited because NY was awaiting hip replacement surgeries and subsequent recoveries. (Yup! Two. Both hips!) It’s been a month now since his second new hip and we’re already planning Disneyland days!

A Romp in the Lake

Cody, Kennedy and I dropped Grandpa off at physical therapy, as part of his hip replacement recovery. We didn’t hang around at PT, as I usually do. Instead, we drove a short distance where the littles had a romp in the lake. Well… in shallow waters at least. They would’ve liked swimming about in deeper waters, but Grandma was being paranoid and set down “no deeper than your kness” restrictions. They had a blast!

Ruby the Kangaroo

Meet Ruby the kangaroo. (Our nickname: Kanga-ruby!) She’s one of the many exotic animals you can meet up close and personal at the San Diego Safari Park’s “Animal Encounters.” We met Ruby when we spent a delightful day exploring the park. Ruby was the first animal we encountered after the gorgeous parrots that greet everyone near the entrance. Ruby was friendly with her keepers but she kept her distance from the spectators. She didn’t perform tricks or anything that isn’t a natural behavior for a kangaroo. She did however hop along at her keeper’s direction and received treats continuously for doing so.

Ruby the Kangaroo Safari Park - Simple Sojourn

I asked about the harness she was wearing. We all know it’s not a natural piece of attire for a lady kangaroo, although it didn’t seem to bother Ruby one bit. Her keepers explained it took months to train Ruby to wear it. It was a slow process that started with her just sniffing the harness as she slowly became used to it being around. Eventually she tried it on … with help from her keepers of course. I suppose for Ruby, wearing the harness is special because she knows she gets to hop about AND get special treats!

Safari Park Ruby the Kangaroo - Simple Sojourns

We took over a 100 digital photos at the Safari Park, but these few photos of sweet Ruby just melt my heart. Perhaps it’s because she doesn’t seem to give a hoot about her little belly poking out in her profile. I wish I had her confidence!

Expedition Everest

While we’ve never actually ventured to the Himalayas to see Mount Everest and give it a climb, we have climbed to the top of Expedition Everest in Walt Disney World. I don’t know it the real Everest is as fun and exciting as Expedition Everest but I’m here to tell you, it’s the best roller coaster I’ve ever ridden! Give it a go the next time you’re in Orlando. I promise you won’t be disappointed!
