A Fun Place to Eat!

One of the things we really wanted to do in Orlando was eat at the Rain Forest Cafe. We ate at the one in Downtown Disney on a day we didn't go to a theme park. I had been to one before in San Antonio, and wanted everyone else to see how cute they are! Have any of you ever been to one?

This gorilla overlooked our table, and followed us with his eyes. Every few minutes he came to life and started making noise and moving.
This is a picture of Cooper when it first happened. I thought he might be a little scared-but he didn't cry. He never smiled though! LOL
You can see from this picture that Connor wasn't scared. He started to climb the tree. I think he would have gone all the way up if we had let him!
After we ate, Cooper got on his first merry go round ride. He was a little startled when it first started moving, but it didn't take him long to start really enjoying the ride.
This is just a snapshot of the fun that we had! I will be posting a few more a little at a time. Hope you all don't get bored with looking at them!
Thanks for stopping by!

They're so cute, Diane ... I love the one of Cooper checking out the monkey.

And the one of you and the boys on the merry-go-round is my favorite. Does it get any better than that!

I've never been to a Rain Forest Cafe. It sounds like a fun place to go though! Those are great pictures of the boys. Cooper looks like he's trying to make up his mind whether he likes the ride or not!

I'm not bored at all. I am looking forward to more pictures :)

take care,

I'm enjoying the pictures a lot. I love Cooper's expressions. It's fun to see things through his eyes, experiencing them for the very first time. His expressions say it all!

Good morning Diane. Since I lived in Kissimmee for 13 years I have done about everything there is to do in that area. I love the Rain Forest Cafe. It is amazing and the food is good. I would never get bored with your great pics of your vacation. For me, it brings me down memory lane. We have done these things with our g-kids since they were old enough to go. Four of my grands live and grew up in Kissimmee. Oh, do I miss them. That was the hardest thing about moving to the mountains. We do see them often though.

Keep your wonderful stories about your trip coming.

We have a Rain Forrest Cafe near us. It's located at Sawgrass Mall--that huge place I wrote about.

I just love Cooper's little chubby cheeks. I'll bet you nuzzle them.

We love Rainforest cafe too... always eat at that same one when we are in Orlando! Great place to keep kids entertained!

Morning, Diane. Look at those precious little boys having fun. Well, Conner anyway. LOL This is all so new to little Cooper! How cute is this. We have a Rain Forest right around the corner from us. Even old folks like me have fun there!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ; )

So cute...Cooper's eyes are telling it all!!! We have eaten at a Rainforest Cafe several times. Lexi was about 4 the first time and it scared her to death (she didn't cry but really didn't like it). After that time we have been a few more times and she loves it!

How could we get bored looking at those adorable kids! The expression on the little nuggets face just cracks me up! Looks like a really fun restaurant. Thanks for the birthday wishes..and I hope you have a really great day!

I love the Rain Forrest Cafe, but Aiden was scared to death when we took him in Nashville. He thought the animals were real! I loved the talking tree, though...go figure!

That Cooper face...funny, funny, funny! :-)

I'm glad you had such a lovely trip...I'm enjoying catching up on it (and living vicariously).

Sue said...

Love the picture of Cooper looking at that gorilla...We've eaten there and it was pretty amazing. I know your family had a wonderful time.

It looks like everyone had a great time and the looks on the children's faces just says it all. I'm so glad you were able to take this trip with them. Now if we could just figure out a way too store each and every memory of it and pull it up anytime we wanted.
