Sesame Place!

After months of an obsession and love for all things Sesame Street, we decided to plan an outing to Sesame Place in Langhorne, PA. Abram was anxious to check out the map and see what he wanted to hit up first!

Honestly, I feel bad saying it, but I was dreading it in a way. I hear stories about mobs of people with screaming children, lines so long you have to wait and wait for anything, hot summer days so hot you can't stand it, and so on. Obviously those stories weren't exactly creating excitement for me!!! as you can imagine. But we planned to meet another couple with their son who is only a couple months younger than the kid. So I was definitely looking forward to seeing our friends and their son.

Turns out, the day was awesome! Yes it was hot and yes it was crowded. lines - yes there were some but nothing as bad as I had expected. And - the best part which made the day a blast for all of us - the kid loved every single moment!! He had such a ball!!! We had prepped him for days saying "guess who we're going to see this weekend?? Big Bird!!!" He was very excited and happy days before but especially when we finally got to see big bird!!!

There was a parade in the afternoon and boy was he excited to see all his favorite guys, all in one place! He was pointing and shouting, saying "Wook! Wook!! Ernie! Elmo! Abby!" etc...

We took a break and went into the AC for some cool down time and to watch an episode of "Elmo's World Live"! Both the boys were tuned in and in complete focus on Elmo and Mr. Noodle!

This was the kids first experience with rides. Though he was slightly apprhensive beforehand, he got right on them and enjoyed it! All 6 of us piled into a tube and went down a waterslide - the boys wore lifejackets. The finale of the ride was a huge drop - abram held his breath the whole way, it scared the crap out of him i could tell. But afterward - he kept saying "wow! good job! fun!! good job! fun!!" Too Cute:) that was the longest line we waited in all day but was well worth it.

The boys really enjoyed each others company, as the parents did!! They had some water time in the many pools. rode some rides together and even enjoyed some ice cream. One of our last visits of the day was with Bert and Ernie. The boys were So excited to see the brothers and ran right to them, giving out big hugs and kisses! As you can see, they weren't scared a bit!

Afterward, on the way home, Abram kept saying, "I hug Ernie! I see Big Bird. I hug Ernie!" Then he fell asleep about 2 minutes later. It was fun but exhausting too... as you can see, he was zonked. and slept the whole way home!

It was an awesome outing and day I love to look back on. We can't wait to take him back!
