Sesame Place

Sunny days.... chasing the clouds away... (now that will be in your head for the rest of this post, huh?)..

Just a couple short weeks ago, we had our very first family of four adventure! We went to Sesame Place located in Langhorne, Pa.  What a fun, fun, FUN time we had! I'm not sure who was more excited, the girls or myself, haha!

We went up on a Thursday - the entire way up the girls kept asking if we were there yet. It was only about an hour drive, impatient much? When we finally arrived, I thought they might burst at the seams!

The park is super cute. There are many, many water rides but we wanted to wait to do the water stuff till later or the next day. So off we went to the dry area of the park...

 YAY! We are finally HERE!!!!

On the steps of 123 Sesame Street.. Abbie is doing a little happy dance.

This was the first ride of the day. A carousel, of course!
(most pictures are with my iPhone.. I just didn't want to lug around my big girl camera and the iPhone fits so nicely in a pocket!)

More rides.. some of these made my stomach have butterflies!
Most of these are pictured with Daddy but rest assured, I went on them too... usually, the FIRST time! Just couldn't take pictures of that, lol!

These tea cups SPUN around so fast! I went on the first time, made Daddy go the next! WHEW!

I think we saw just about every character there was to see! The girls RAN to them like they were their best friends! I was so happy there was no being scared or shy. They happily gave hugs & posed like rockstars!

Bert & Ernie and SUPER Grover!!

The Count!

and.. Abby Cadabby (who is my favorite!!)

Does this guy need an introduction?  COOOOOOOOOKKKIIEEEEE!!!

We left the park mid-afternoon to go grab some lunch. We refused to pay the money in the park for a simple hot dog & burger (sorry Sesame!). Sitting at lunch though, the clouds grew dark and the skies opened! Good thing we were inside... it stormed like crazy! Sesame Place does this really cool thing where if it rains more than 1 hour on the day you have a ticket, they give you a "Sunny Day" ticket replacement to come back. So we were secretly hoping for at least an hour of showers. Well, it ended up raining for about 3 hours.. Boooo! The park closed at 6 on Thursday and it was 5:00.. we made a quick decision to go back to the park for the last hour, the showers were almost gone and we had to get our Sunny Day ticket anyways. When we got there, it was practically empty. I guess everyone had their fair share & left because we saw maybe 10 people? Jackpot! We got to see a few more characters with no line, of course and even dance in the street with Bert & Ernie. WOOHOO!

We made it back to our hotel, bathed, relaxed and both girls (and almost Mommy & Daddy) were out by 8:30, snoozing! By the way.. I think we need room darkening shades in their bedroom, they didn't make a peep until about 8:00am the next morning.

Stay tuned for Day 2...
