We Didn't Do It!

So, Paul sent his resume to a friend of his and asked him to look over it. This friend decided to put his resume in for a job. What?! Yeah, that was our reaction. haha!
Well, Paul got an interview.
Then he got another interview.
Then he had another interview.
Then he was offered the job... in CHICAGO, IL. They offered us more money than he makes now. Then, we prayed about it and felt we needed to stay here. So, Paul turned them down. They called us back and offered Paul $15,000 more!! Oh... the pain. So, we still turned them down.

However, we learned something very cool... Paul's skills are marketable and people are willing to fight for him. This was a great boost of confidence for him and I'm so proud of him and everything he has accomplished. He is just amazing!

Disney Day 8 Going Home

We didn't go to a park today....
Cool caterpillar on our tent. 

Collin, showing off the light saber he built.

 Both of these pics are of us trying to deflate the air mattress. Okay, yes, we were "glamping", not camping.

 Wally (short for Walt Disney) meeting Dino (Collin's t-rex that he has slept with every night since he was 2).
Our faces at the thought of leaving.

Our faces at the thought of staying again!

Ryanne sleeping during the ride home. 

Disney Day 7 Animal Kingdom

I loved this place!!

the Tree of Life

This was the first roller coaster Ryanne finally held her hands up for instead of gripping the bar. YAY!!! They also rode this one twice because it was only a 10 minute line. 

 For the Rapids ride we decided to be smart and wear our ponchos. It didn't help so much.

It's a bat!

a tiger


beautiful flowers

This was the dinosaur ride. It was fun!

 Did you know Finding Nemo was a musical? Yeah, me neither. I really liked the way they did this.

The bug show was so fun! It was more of a 4D show. 

Paul spent the entire time we were there searching for a hat and he finally found it!

We went on a safari and these are some of the pictures from it. 

ant hill

This was not on the safari. This was rat tunnels. Each of the chambers had a window so we could see what they were doing inside. It was really cool. 

Weaver nests.... aren't they cool. We were watching them build them. 

Hippo skull

Gorilla hand prints

bird show

We had to try the ice cream every one talks about. They really tasted just the same.

The Lion King!
