How do you get to Sesame Street?

This last weekend we got to go to a free little production of Sesame Street. Kai has only seen Sesame Street maybe 5 times in her life- seeing how I don't let her watch TV. (she's not completely deprived though, she does get to watch 2 Baby Einsteins a day) But lately I have loosened my stance a bit and I have let her watch Barney a few times and if she is lucky, she gets a late nap so she can watch Sesame Street. She loves it, loves it! She has Sesame Street books so she's familiar with the characters and a plush Grover that she won't go to bed with out. So you can only imagine her excitement as we sat in the auditorium and awaited Grover and Elmo and Cookie...

Jude was likewise just as ecstatic...
I was pretty ecstatic myself...
Kai wanted to show the 'big Grover' her 'little Grover' and held him up almost the entire show...
Cookie and Grover...

Cute video clips...

We had so much fun and Kai had a smile on her face from the moment we walked in, to the moment it was over, and then some. Too bad her mommy and daddy are sticklers and she doesn't ever get to watch it on TV:( All well, maybe it will just give her a greater appreciation for the few times she actually does get to watch it!
