Father's Day and Sesame Place

We had a fun father's day today. We let Kevin sleep in, then made him pancakes for breakfast. And then, Kevin made Jacob a fun box house! He was in heaven.

Then after church, we went and had a picnic for dinner. Jacob spent most of the time just roaming around.

Happy Father's Day Kevin! We love you so much!

Yesterday we had a fun little outing. Since Jacob has been a little obsessed with Elmo lately, we thought it would be fun to take him to Sesame Place in Langhorne, PA. It was just an hour and a half drive from NYC, and the trip wasn't bad at all. When we got there, it was soooo crowded! And really hot. But overall, we had a fun time. I think it would have been more fun if Jacob was about 3 years old, but at the same time, we didn't have to worry about him asking for everything and throwing temper tantrums.

Sesame Place is part theme park, part water park. Jacob wasn't too comfortable with the water part though. I think it was overwhelming because of all the people. He is crying in most of the water pics.

But, he did love the little plays areas, especially the stairs and slides.

He also loved the rides! Here he is on the flying fish ride with daddy:)

And we saw the "Elmo's World" show. I am not sure what Jacob thought of it. For most of the show, he was sucking his thumb, but he would get excited when everyone was dancing around.

Big Bird's Nest was really fun for him (and us too, because it was an enclosed space that we could just let him play around in).

I think we had a good time because we went in with low expectations. We weren't expecting to be able to do much with a 16-month old, but I was surprised with how much we did. However if I would change one thing, I would go on a weekday--it would be less crowded, and also cheaper:)

I think it's funny that Jacob is sad in all the water pictures and his rash guard says "Crabbys" on it. :)

Are little kid rash guards the cutest thing? I love when Miles wheres them. So cute.
