It's Sunday - Funday!!

Another week has flown by.  I've already seen Back to School sales in the stores!  Are you all ready for the kids to go back already?

I am so glad you all responded positively to last week's puzzle!!  And I am happy to say that I didn't have to give out one clue!  That is pretty awesome! You should all be congratulated! I know many of you who entered have never been to DisneyWorld.  The correct answer was  THE TREE OF LIFE is located on DISCOVERY ISLAND in ANIMAL KINGDOM!

The Tree of Life is 145 feet tall and 50 feet wide.  Ten artists and three Imagineers worked for 18 months to create the 325 animal carvings on The Tree of Life.   The Tree of Life had to be constructed to withstand hurricane force winds and still look realistic. There are 45 secondary branches that lead to  756 tertiary branches.  There are 7891 end branches with 102, 583 man made leaves, each being over a foot long. There are four shapes and sizes and many shades that actually blow in the wind!  There is also a Hidden Mickey on the tree - somewhere!  Amazingly, each of the branches can bend and sway. Truly a deserving icon of Disney's Animal Kingdom. 

The Tree of Life roots find their way into the several paths surrounding the tree, known as Discovery Island Trails.  A  quiet area of pool, meadows and trees and home to flamingoes, otters, lemurs, axis deer, cranes, storks, tortoises and red kangaroo.

I bet you are all wondering who the lucky winner of the $10 coupon chosen by the randomizer is?  Drum roll please.... congratulations to Carolyn Laporte!!   I sent the coupons out last evening to everyone that participated.
