We had a wonderful time at Sesame Place in Pennsylvania. The fact that our entrance to the park was FREE made the whole experience less stressful. (Thank you Busch for supporting the troops!) Not spending over $200 to get into the park took off all the pressure to "do everything" that we likely would have felt otherwise. We can't wait to go back again next year before Ryan deploys.
Ryan and I did not wear swimsuits so we were not able to take the boys on some of the water slides, etc. The boys, however, did get to experience Ernie's Waterworks and they LOVED it!
The boys were so delighted to see Ernie and have the chance to give him a hug.
Ian absolutely loved the HUGE net climbing structure. Poor Ryan had to follow Ian through the whole thing doing his best to keep Ian safe...Ian only came out with a large rope burn on one side of his face. Not bad! Ryan had rope burns on his knees.
Nathan hung back with me while the bigger boys climbed the ropes. I don't blame him.
Look, I slipped into another photo! Such a rare thing to see proof of my presence at all these fun events.
We had to stop for a quick photo on our way out of the park. I loved these topiaries trimmed to the shapes of some famous Sesame Street characters.
Typical Ian, making silly faces instead of posing nicely for the camera person.
Who is this kid? I don't think he's related to us...we certainly don't look this good in photos!
