Alright, I know. EVERYONE is waiting to hear how Elmo went.
First of all it was a 2 p.m. show, which meant it was during their nap times.
Brooke slept for a little bit in the car while the boys stayed awake.
We got inside and saw our friends Grace and Makenna who are 1 year younger than Jacob. I gave them our meet and greet Elmo tickets since I was afraid that the babies would freak out.
We got to our seats, which were third row center, and settled in. Julie got sodas and popcorn for us all and we waited for the show. The first half of the show I had Matthew and Brooke on my lap and they were so involved in the show it was amazing. John sat on Aunt Julie's lap and ate her popcorn and watched. Jacob was so excited to see all the characters too.
Then came intermission when they try to sell cheap items at high prices. This is where the kids really lost interest, or got antsy.
The second half of the show still went well, but the kids were more restless moving around and not sitting as well.
Being up so close to the stage really helped the kids focus and keep their attention to the stage.
My tickets were $32.00 each(I won four of those). There souvenirs were outrageously expensive. There were Elmo dolls for $15.00 (the same that I got at Walmart for $5.00) and Elmo balloons for $8.00. I'm shocked at the amount of people who are willing to spend this for tickets and food and all the other stuff when the economy is the way it is.
