If there is a more jolly place on earth for young children than Sesame Place, I would love to know about it! Wading pools, rides, ice cream, trains, parades, and, oh, Big Bird, Grover, Cookie Monster, Ernie and Bert, Elmo, and Oscar the Grouch! We left Philadelphia on the morning of Monday, 30 June 2008, for the relatively short drive to this veritable wonderland. We arrived with the boys’ bathing suits in hand and wishing we had our own! This didn’t stop Don, though, from going on the raft down Big Bird’s Rambling River with Edgar. And the joy on Oscar’s face as he knocked on Oscar the Grouch’s trashcan trying to coax him out was electric. We closed the park–of course–and had just as much fun as any kid there!
