Sesame Street Live
I mentioned to a friend that we were going to see the new Elmo show this past weekend and he expressed surprise. Why? I wondered. Apparantly Sesame Street is considered by some to be too juvenile for a 4.5 yr old. Ummm, nope. G is still a little girl. I don't have any intention of impeding her progress but I have no desire for her to grow up too quickly either. Anyway, having said that, G still likes Sesame Street and gentle things of that sort. And, I'm happy for it.
As usual, G was excited about going to see a show and she loved the little Elmo set I found for her. They had a cute pre-show thing that allowed for tons of photo ops and activities for the little ones. We were happily surprised to run into one of her little friends from preschool there which made it even more fun for G. She immediately grabbed her little hand so they could explore the Play Zone area together. So cute!
During the show she danced and sang and really had a good time. We ended up sitting in the front so she had lots of character interaction which was awesome. The show itself, Elmo Makes Music, was one of the best children's shows I've seen. They did different kinds of music like rap and disco. The disco portion was particularly funny featuring Bert dressed in a white 3-piece suit a la John Travolta from Saturday Night Fever. Hysterical. G didn't catch any of those references of course but the parents certainly did :-)
