Me, my mom, and all three kids justh got out of the show for Elmo. Busy event, infant, toddler, 5-year-old (who thinks she's 15), AND over the dinner hour? How we managed to make it out with only a minor demand for a balloon shaped like Elmo's head and a few times when *someone* wanted to wander off on his own (JACOB) I just don't know.
The Elmo balloon he wanted are super expensive... but I think Jake thought they were giving them out for free because he was saying he needed "to get my balloon" as he walked towards a little kid about 20 feet away from us.
Eventually he'll learn that, at $10 a pop (pun intended), we do not purchase fragile bits of helium filled Mylar that won't last long in our house between the pulling and the pushing and the poking and the probable popping. Plus. $10.
Really Sesame Street people?
So, no balloon.
Hypothetically, impulse buys like oh, say popcorn for $4.50 and maybe some cotton candy for $5? Yes. For sure. Ahem. HYPOTHETICALLY.
Also, Katie started gymnastics! She loves it! It was a little hard though to not laugh TOO much at the face plants and tipovers I saw. Katie did a great job on the things she learned from her last class and she got to wear her pink leotard.
(And I realized that I will pay inflated prices for so-so food but not for flimsy balloons.)
