Can You Tell Me How to Get....
Ok, so I must admit. I love Gideon. I love him so much that I can't imagine sometimes having another child because I can't imagine loving anyone more. (I wasn't really admitting to loving Gideon. Everyone knows that already. I am admitting to the following sentence.) HOWEVER, I sometimes think that the reason I gave birth to a child is so that I can enjoy the attractions and amusements that are usually seen as being only for children. Example? Sesame Place. I have never been to Sesame Place, yet I have always, always wanted to go. Sesame Place is strictly for kids. It isn't like Six Flags Great Adventure where there are more rides for teens and adults than there are for kids. Sesame Place is geared toward...well, kids who watch Sesame Street.
Last Saturday, we headed to Sesame Place for Luis's 8th birthday (Alex's nephew). It was a gorgeous day. Gideon loves water. He loves getting wet, and splashing everything. So, we headed over to the "tidal wave" pool. Ok, so isn't a tidal wave a bad thing? Doesn't it cause destruction and mayhem? Why would you name a pool area a tidal wave? Anyway, I digress.
Just like at Disney, Sesame Place has a parade several times a day. I was anticipating this, since I have been curious to see if Gideon would be afraid of the characters. So, we took a place on the street, and saw the following:
And did Gideon watch and clap his hands to the music? Or did he burst into tears and cower in fear?
Sigh. He napped through the whole thing. Maybe next year.
