When we were at the mall, another parent actually asked us if they were brother and sister, to which I replied, "No, they are boyfriend and girlfriend." You can imagine the look she gave me. :)
I figure that when they grow up they will either laugh at how silly their parents are or just think we are plain crazy.

When I was a kid, Big Bird probably made the biggest impression on me... I am not sure why, but it was fun to see him in person.
Zoe, one of the very few female monsters, was in attendance. Rosita and Prairie Dawn were there too, but I didn't want to post all 200 of the photos I took!
And of course, Elmo-- Jared's favorite-- was a big part of the show.
When the show began, Jared was very focused. He stared in what almost appeared to be disbelief... "Is that really who I think it is?" After staring with rapt attention for awhile, one of the thunderous roars of applause shook him up and he was upset for a moment. I worried that we would have to leave early, but he returned to his fascinated state quickly.
After intermission, Jared quickly became very comfortable. We sat on the center aisle in the floor seats and we had to physically prevent him from running up to the stage every 2 minutes!
Judging by Jared's applause, he enjoyed the show thoroughly! Dalvin and I were surprised at how much we enjoyed the show too-- Good job, Sesame Street!
"Thanks for bringing me to see Elmo, Mom and Dad! I had so much fun!"

"Mmmmm... yummy. I think it even tastes better when I do it myself..."
"Haha! You guys didn't think I could do it! Woohoo!"
"Oh, mommy... daddy... never underestimate a boy and his apple sauce..."

"Wow, Mommy... the view from our room is great! The beach looks perfect, let's go, let's go!"
"Haha-- but then again-- this chair is GREAT! Maybe we can stay and wait on the balcony for Auntie Wo-Wo to get here!"
"Um, is Auntie Jo-Jo coming by ship? What's taking her so long?"
"YAY--FINALLY! After sunblock, change of clothes, etc., we are finally at the beach... It is HOT, though-- Let me get a drink of water before I get down to it!"
"Okay, before we start building, I really need to take inventory of all my tools. Shovel, check. Bucket, check. Sifter, check. I think I am ready to proceed."
"Hey Mom-- Very busy now, can't talk! Sorry! Castles to build and dirt to dig!"
"Mommy, can you please tell that little girl, to stop putting those pigeon feathers (and cigarette butts and sea shells) in my castles!"
"My castles look great! Except for those ol' feathers... oh no, here comes that little girl again!"
"Uh oh...Mom, I think I have a problem here... I think I am sinking... can you help me?"
"Okay, building sand castles was fun, but I think it's time to check out this ocean thing you keep telling me about..."
"Ahhh... so this is the ocean... it doesn't look so bad..."
"HA! This is GREAT! Relaxing in the sun is MUCH better than being chased by those monster waves."
"Aw mom...Do we HAVE to go back inside already? I wanna stay on the beach longer!"
"Hmm, how many different ways do I have to get wet today, mom? Do I really have to do this before going back into the hotel? Oh wait.... this feels pretty cool..."
"Whew, after a long day at the beach, passing out with mommy in the comfy hotel bed is the best... night, night, everyone!"
