October 2011 -- II

Ursula wanted to handle all the luggage....

Jaana wasn't too happy about flying.

Just the aiport tram was an adventure.

Arriving at Give Kids the World Village

Astrid has a star at Give Kids the World

This was a fine waffle.

Somebody turned 12 !

Astrid extracted the bell-ringer's bell (she found him hilarious).

Feeding the manta rays.

I think Astrid wanted to grab the sea lion.

Somebody turned 6!

Astrid on the carousel she was later banned from. (booo, Universal!)

The kids took part in some sort of patriotic display.

Astrid's star ceremony -- we each wrote 2 letters of her name on the star for the ceiling at Give Kids the World

Jaana and I are bumble bees

The Ursula special -- mint chocolate chip ice cream with fudge and caramel sauce, sprinkles and m&ms, stirred into this rather unappetizing looking mess, which is delicious!
