Come and Play…

December 6, 2011

We aren’t usually terribly spontaneous people, but when i saw that Sesame Place was doing a winter/Christmas thing, i knew we had to go.  Shockingly, my sweet husband did not need much convincing.  The girls are growing so fast, Sesame won’t be cool forever. 

we called it the queenvanna creations annual corporate Christmas party.

one girl did not think it was cool to skip a day of school.  oooh, she was mad mad mad.  she got over it once we were actually there… and she saw her friends:



we saw a show and rode all the rides 100 or so times,


spent some quality time with the big guy himself!

every little adorable detail was festive-fied.  so, so sweet.

it was a magical weekend for our little family.

i might not remember writing this post in a day or 2.  i have been going nonstop for a little more than a week, finishing up with 2 hours of sleep friday in to saturday getting ready for a craft show – i was accepted at 4:30p on friday, had to leave the house at 5a on saturday, and throw in working 7 hours in between that time.   i’ve got a lot of loose ends to pick up, and a bunch of new projects i want to do…  busy busy, fun fun!

breeze was blowing, so the tablecloth is all wonky, but otherwise, i think it looked pretty good!

but i suppose you want to hear about what all happened leading up to this point – you’ve been seeing the pics on flickr and facebook, and we had a GREAT time with auntie bobbie jo.

we saw mystic aquarium – the beluga whales usually swim laps, floating by the people watching at the window… but this one saw bobbie jo and stopped to check her out.  it was AWESOME.

we jumped on the beach (2 beaches, actually)

(this one is out-takey, but it makes me laugh)

we hunted down painted horses and turkeys, and my assignment for next year is to find a very specific painted turkey we all would like to see…

sesame was great – warm and not-rainy, and sometimes sunny.

the grown ups ROCKED the visors. 

oh, look who enjoyed the lazy river…

hopscotch on sesame street – i would’ve LOVED to do this when i was 5…

and crayola on the way home – very fun, hands on projects.  i don’t know that i’d make it a destination, but it was a good time on the way home.


and it certainly gave me some craft ideas to do with the girls….

after i get some rest.
