Vacation 2009

For Vacation this year we took the kids to Sesame Place in PA...and then to DC to visit April. We had such a great time and it was a much needed break for the whole family. The Sesame Park was so fun for the kids and so nostalgic for Art and I. I loved seeing the charecters as much as the kids did. The shows were fantastic and Maddie even got to be in the Elmos World Live show. Our first day at Sesame Place there was NO crowd at all all and we got to go on rides and Water slides over and over again with no line. Art and I had as much fun as the kids! The second day was hot and more crowded but we still managed to have a blast! DC was great too. we really just wanted to get to see April...we knew the kids wouldn't be that into touring the sights but we all loved the natural history museum...we had a great time there and especially loved the fact that it kept us out of the 95 degree heat. WE also had fun visiting the DC temple and playing at a park..Santa Clauses park! WE enjoyed seeing all of the places that April has lived the past few years. The kids just couldn't believe that Aunt April has to park her car on the road. They told her that she should move to Ohio because we have driveways there! The kids sure love their Aunt April. I don't think Maddie left her side the entire time we were there. It was a great trip and we are so glad we got to go. Sesame Place is on our lists worthy of a return visit.
