I am a huge fan of the Pixar short films, but this one is one of my favorites.

Boundin' is a 2003 Pixar computer-animated short film, which was shown in theaters before the feature-length film The Incredibles. The short is a musically narrated story about a dancing sheep, who loses his confidence after being sheared. The film was written, directed, narrated and featured the musical composition and performance of Pixar animator Bud Luckey.

We rented bikes today and rode all over the island! My favorite part... I found a tree on the bike path that has a red door for a mouse built into the bottom.  It even "opens".   I love all the small details Disney has.
