Elmo Live

Last Friday our playgroup went to see the Sesame Street Live show at Reliant Arena. For Addison, it was like the Beatles in my parents' generation, or like me seeing N'Sync in college (no, I'm not ashamed, I was obsessed)....girl was peeing her pants, I"m sure.

Although when we got there and the show was delayed 20 minutes, girl was not having it. Wanted to walk up and down the stairs, be anywhere but her seat....all while I have Graham bjorned to me. Not an easy first legit outing with 2 under 2.

So what to do? Buy the child an overpriced souvenir to keep her occupied. Finally, and thankfully, the show started.

and the child was mesmerized.....

wasn't really able to get a lot of pictures because I was juggling Graham and attempting to keep Addison from rushing the stage.

But we had friends who were willing to share their snacks...

and where there's food, there's Addison.

Forgive the picture quality, but it was all I could do to get out the door, let alone bring the big camera....

see the bjorned baby?

This was me trying to distract her during the 15 minute intermission. Who's bright idea was it to have a 20 minute INTERMISSION for a show with 5,000 2 year olds?

Multitasking at it's best.....Andy...we will be late to meet you from lunch..
Addison and her friend, Grayson....who was nice enough to share his bucket of popcorn.
Which was great until Addison dumped it out and started picking it up and eating it off the floor....SHOW OVER.

More junkfood to keep her in her seat
Konked out!!! An exhausting day, but SO fun!

Glad she liked it more than Grayson. :) Gavin and Ellie loved it a few years ago...but we didn't go this year. Sooo...when are we doing our playdate that we keep planning?!? LOL!

great job, mama! and don't worry about the pic quality, of all things. with three, it's a miracle if pictures ever even get taken outside of our house!
