Given the heat and the attention span of two 2 year olds, we decided to go at twilight. This cut the cost by about $20 and meant that we only had to stay 4 hours. Also, I was afraid that the trip was not going to be completely pleasant and that at least one of the kids would be more scared of their monster friends than excited to see them. I’ll take this opportunity to note that Ella was decked out for her Sesame adventure in one of her Elmo shirts, her Elmo socks, and one of her Elmo hair ties. She was Elmo’d out! The first order of business was to see a show with a new character, Raggs. It was a solid 30 minutes of music and dancing.
Next came the Carousel. Joe was afraid she would be scared on it, but not our little trooper. She LOVED it! I think the see saw prepared her for the up and down motion, and she really liked being up close and personal with the horses. She informed me that her horse was “yeyyow and fween,” aka, yellow and green. You can’t see her face in the pictures because her arm was covering it up, but I assure you she was smiling from ear to ear! The second the ride ended she said, “Horsie again?”
