1-2-3 Imagine! Sesame Street Live

Ages since the blog has been posted to, but today we took Cora to Sesame Street Live and there was a request for photographic evidence.

Our seats were only a couple rows away from the stage. It was a very active show, with characters coming off the stages, little cannons shooting out confetti and streamers, and colored lights everywhere.

Coraline was mesmerized. Don't think I've ever seen her so attentive for 45 minutes at a stretch before.

We'd wondered a bit whether she would be scared or excited, and after the first few minutes she definitely got into it. The only exception was a grouch-like character (but not Oscar) who freaked Cora out every time it came over to our edge of the stage.

The enemy

Luckily we showed Cora how to say "Stop" as you can hear at the start of this video, along with the emphatic hand gesture to accompany it.

All in all it was a great time. Apart from the freaky grouch and Amber feeling rather sick that morning, I'd say it went off flawlessly.
