Last Monday (6/2), we decided to take a half day off of work and take the boys to Sesame Place. I had been wanting to get there before the majority of schools were out so that the crowds would be minimal. We could not have had a better day to go. It was in the high 70's, sunny and the park was fairly empty. We didn't wait for any ride longer than one line's worth. And our kids aren't the most adventurous when it comes to rides or characters, so this could have ended up being a big bust. But they surprised us! They still weren't a fan of characters. Evan wouldn't even get in line to meet Elmo. And, well, the look on Eric's face says it all:
We went on our first ride, the carousel, and Eric was crying to get off. I was thinking the day would be doomed and we were still at least 15 years away from getting to Disney. But then Evan discovered the water slides . . . and he LOVED them. This was a really big one that went through a tunnel. But as long as he could share a tube with his dad, he was willing to try anything. He rode this one 5 times in a row!
And the "teacups" were a hit. I don't have the stomach for spinning rides anymore, though, so I just watched.
And here is Eric smiling on the last ride of the day:
