I forgot to share these pictures before Christmas, when we took Brianna to see Sesame Street Live. I got advance notice of tickets going on sale (via our local civic center) and I got to order tickets before they went on sale to the general public. Consequently, I got tickets right on top of the stage. There’s a set of stairs leading down where the characters would walk down to dance in front of the audience. Our seats were in front of that part and I sat on the aisle, right next to the characters dancing. This would have been wonderful but for one exception…Brianna was terrified for the first half of the show. She spent it wrapped around either Josh or I, and I thought we were going to have to take her to therapy when Baby Bear sat down in “her” seat (which was empty since she was attached to Josh like glue). She kept asking to go home, but we’re mean parents (and we paid about $130 for all five tickets for the three of us and Mima and Poppy) so we made her tough it out. Good thing because after the intermission, she was a whole new child and seemed to enjoy the second half of the show. Here’s some pictures:

A treat before the show (also known as a big ole mess before the show)

A picture of some of the cast of characters

To give you an idea, this picture is taken with Cookie Monster right next to me, not with zoom. This as much of him as would fit in the frame, he was so close. That’s how good our seats were.

Some pictures of Brianna, isn’t her outfit adorable? These are all during and then after intermission; See how relaxed she is? I didn’t get any of her in the terrified phase.

She loves her Mima and Poppy

Engrossed in the show, holding one of the toys her Mima and Poppy bought her (there was other stuff that she didn’t need, lol, but it’s under the chair or in my purse by this time. But she loved that elmo spinny thing!)

And just for fun, the most popular guy in the place? The man selling Elmo balloons at intermission. These things were a hot item, as you can see…
