Disney Pt. 4- Animal Kingdom

I bet you thought I was done with the Disney posts.  Nope, not this procrastinator!  I’ve still got a few up my sleeve, and yes, it’s 2 months after the fact :)  That’s how I roll!

After a very rainy day, we were fortunate to have sunny and warm weather the next day while we toured the Animal Kingdom.  Christmas at the Animal Kingdom complete with an animal themed tree!  I think Jude’s smile is super adorable in this pic.  He’s at an age where he’s starting to pose for pictures and I love it.
