One night we sneaked into Ruis and Karl's room to play a trick on them but they came home early and almost caught us. We leapt under their bed in an effort to hide. They stayed up HALF the night talking! It wasn't until 3am when they finally fell asleep and we were able to sneak back out!

On Momo's birthday we decided to play a game of hide and seek. We had all been hiding for about an hour, thinking that we had found the PERFECT hiding places because it seemed that Roscoe wasn't able to find any of us. When he never turned up, we peaked out from our hiding spots only to find that Roscoe had fallen asleep while counting to ten!
And speaking of games, Momo thought that Africa would be the perfect place to play Thundering Herd of Elephants. What Momo didn't know was that African elephants are incredibly good at this game; they play it ever day. We almost got trampled when Momo yelled "Thundering heard of elephants!!!!" but we got away just in time.
We had a lot of fun playing with the African animals. One day we thought it would be neat to have races. Can you believe that Sassy was able out run the cheetahs????
Roscoe on the other hand didn't have as much luck when he raced the hippos!
Then there was the afternoon that Opus came up missing. We found him sleeping in the bathtub with Momo's tiara and Roscoe's rubber ducky!
On our last night at the lodge, we were all feeling sad that we had to go back to our homes. We felt really bad that Karl and Ruis had to say good bye to each other. In an effort to cheer them up, we treated to them to a dinner theater.
In honor of our trip to Africa, we performed "The Lion King" for them while they enjoyed a romantic dinner.
After the show, all of our new friends came over to bid us a fine farewell.
Then as the African sun started to dip below the horizon, we all jumped in the magic flying van and headed back to our homes.
