Sesame Place, Agenda-Free

Out of all the places Aiden and I love to visit, Sesame Place has always topped our list. Just about two hours away, it always makes for a fun day trip. A couple weeks ago, we packed up and headed to Sesame Place for the day, but unlike previous times, Aiden was not opposed to going on the rides that were taller, faster, and more "big kid-esque."

Not to mention that Aiden gets super excited whenever he spotted Big Bird or Elmo or Ernie or anyone from the Sesame Street clan, which made meet and greets and high-fives one of the highlights of our day.

It was a good time.

Normally, we'd visit Sesame Place for a particular event (Halloween Spooktacular in the Fall, Opening Weekend in the Spring, etc.) so I'd have a plan of the rides and areas that I want Aiden to experience. But not this time. This time, I allowed the kid to choose exactly where he wanted to go and what he wanted to do.

And you know what? It was really fun. And freeing without having to worry about an itinerary.

Aiden had his eyes set on the nets, the sand area, the flying airplanes, and water rides. We stayed at the park until closing time (a first time for us!) to watch the Neighborhood Street Parade, and, although I was really tired the next day, I am so happy that we did. Experiencing the parade at nightfall (when all of the Sesame Place street lights were on) was quite magical. Aiden's been watching replays on You Tube ever since!

So now I know: when you visit Sesame Place, you've gotta do it agenda-free! It's the only way to roll.
