The girls had recently enjoyed the musical "Beauty and the Beast" there, and when we found our seats they told me that "the curtain looks different."
The show was a song and dance extravaganza, including all our favorite Sesame Street characters, from Big Bird, who made the first appearance accompanied by much screaming and hysteria, to Elmo, who is just so darn lovable you wanna hug him to pieces.
Even intermission was fun for the girls. I had brought along two gift-wrapped packages for them to open at the intermission. You see, my plan was to avoid the souvenir stand down there in the lobby. Last time I nearly choked when I saw the prices they charge, and they simply have you over the barrel once you're there. The girls opened their gift bags and each found a small cuddly stuffed Sesame Street figure. They were content, and I avoided the hijacking of the souvenir stand. Then they played nicely with the little girl who was seated behind us until the second act began.
I am a big kiddo at heart, and I was most anxious to see Elmo, my favorite of all of the Sesame Street characters. I was not disappointed - he is just so innocent, funny, and lovable.
Attending this performance, I felt like I was witnessing a Kiddie Rock Concert:
There was screaming!
There was swooning!
There was arm waving!
There was clapping!
There was not much sitting but lots of jumping up and down!
There was laughing!
There was foot stomping!
And there were smiles! Lots of smiles.
So hopefully the girls and I made some more good memories....
I know I had fun.
They had a blast.
And THAT'S ALL THAT COUNTS!
