Sesame Street Live

One of Brandon's coworkers was so nice in giving us four tickets to see Sesame Street Live! We took both kids and Korey. They LOVED it! Eli can't sit still for very long, so I thought it might be a disaster, but he did great. I was smart and immediately bought a popcorn for the kids to share during the first half, and then Brandon and Eli went and grabbed some sno cones for the second half. All three kids sat through the 1 1/2 hour program and clapped, danced, and had a blast. I was thrilled to see that we might be able to enjoy more kids programs like this now that Eli can sit for that long...with food. Cora loved it! She sat on my lap mesmerized, danced, and ate some of her snacks. I spent the whole time just enjoying the kids reactions to the show! The whole show was about being healthy (eating well, brushing your teeth, etc.) and was all singing and dancing with a lot of crowd participation. Eli kept saying, "REAL Elmo" and if Elmo was off stage he would say, "Elmo getting ready". Now if he sees a stuffed Elmo or poster he points and says, "pretend Elmo". Last night he wanted to sleep with the "REAL Elmo" and not his stuffed one. He gave his imaginary Elmo friend a big cute!
