Elmo's Healthy Heroes

Today was the big day! We got to reward J with the second half of filling up her potty chart! We took her to see Sesame Street live! Here are a few moments from our fun time today!

All geared up (literally from head to toe) with Elmo on her shirt, underwear, socks and bow. Not to mention she brought one of her stuffed Elmo toys with her!
In the car. She is getting tired of me trying to get her excited to go. She was excited, but she just wanted to go! Put the camera away Mom!!!

Standing in front of the "big tv" as she calls it. We weren't really supposed to go this far in this direction, but the usher was nice and let us take a photo op!

There were no cardboard cutouts this year. Daddy found the next best thing on the edge of one of the gift stations.

Anxiously awaiting the start of the show!

Elmo's dramatic entrance into the show!

Oh, no! Super Grover has lost his superness!

Someone has to be super in his stead!

Finished with her snacks now she is clutching her Elmo.

Time to get up and shake her booty.

Who are our unlikely heroes going to be?! The Fabulous 4! But Zoe thinks it should be the Fabulous 5 including her pet rock, Rocco!

After much discussion, the other's reluctantly agree.

There's Abby Cadabby as, "Glitter Girl."

Zoe and her pet rock, Rocco as "Wonder Zoe and Roc Roc."

And Telly as "Triangle Boy!" In case you don't know, Telly LOVES triangles!

I have a picture of Elmo later as, "Captain Fuzzy!"

Their first call of duty is to help Old MacDonald on her farm. She is trying to determine what to have for lunch. Her lunch is gone! The Fabulous Five save the day with a tuna fish sandwich, apple and glass of ice cold milk.

Still not sure how the sheep and Cookie Monster in kilts fit in, but got a good picture.

In the meantime they decide to hold a "cape" fashion show thinking that perhaps all Super Grover needs is a new cape. Check out the cape Bert is sporting!

Here is Abby's chance to save the day. Big Bird is playing a game of hide and seek with Ernie. He just can't seem to find him.

Abby suggests that perhaps a nap will help him to become a little more rested and sharper so that he can find Ernie. In a dream, Big Bird dreams that Ernie is on the moon, thus getting his answer as to where to find Ernie.

Now it's "Captain Fuzzy's" turn to save the day! Elmo's World is in trouble! See for yourself below!

Oh no! It is now Oscar's World and it is FILTHY! Instead of Dorothy the goldfish, there is an iguana named Gene.

Despite the look of this picture, our seats were relatively close. Closer than last time I believe. She decided rather than getting another "concert shirt," she wanted these instead. I think it was a good choice!

Elmo was trying to convince Oscar about certain things about hygiene. Here they are talking about combing their hair. Check out Rossita and Bert's hair styles!

Jesstine even had a friend to sit by! A friend and former colleague of mine told me she was looking to take her daughter, Michaela, to see Elmo as well. We decided to just meet up and go together. Michaela is a few weeks younger than Babe B. Here mommy and I were pregnant at the same time.

Now it's Zoe and Rocco's turn to try their hand at this super hero stuff. I told Stephen that the human character, Kay, probably stole her dress from the Minnie Mouse touring group!

Zoe has to convince Cookie Monster, that it is better to eat lots of colorful foods rather than just cookies!

They then have to help Super Grover figure out how to get back his Superness. At this point, Michaela suggested that perhaps he was feeling poorly because he needed to poop. LOL! Us three adults laughed long and hard about that. The Fabulous Five informed him of all of the ways they helped others and that perhaps by doing these things, Grover would get his superness back. And it worked as you can see!

Michaela REALLY liked Jesstine!

Super Grover can fly now!

Yeah the Grand Finale!!!

Overall, Stephen and I were not as impressed with the storyline of this production as we were of the one last year. We both thought that the part about Rocco was pushed way too much and it got to be REALLY annoying. What matters is that Jesstine had a great time and got a new friend! We are so proud of our big girl!

It is always tradition when leaving or walking to the arena here in town, that Jesstine rides on her Daddy's shoulders. This was certainly no exception! Since she didn't want a concert shirt, we opted for a pennant instead (a flag as she calls it) that we could hang in her room to commemorate this fun family time we shared.

The day was not quite over though! After a quick bite to eat and some well needed rest, we had a wedding to attend. Pictures to follow soon!

In Him,
The Hutchins'
