We are home! Three weeks is a long time to be away from home but we have had a wonderful time traveling! Abigail had such a great time playing with old friends (and I did too). We arrived home on Tuesday night only to get up Wendnesday morning to head to the hospital so Ab could have her tonsils removed. The surgery went great and she is feeling 1000x better already! She must have felt a lot of pain before because she is saying that the surgery does not hurt so bad.
Sesame was great this year! Abigail is finally tall enough to do most of the rides and really liked the characters! She was so amazed by seeing "ballerina" zoe that she would not even pose for a picture. This was the best I could get.
The rides were great. Abigail says her favorite ride was the rollar coaster (my least favorite ride) and then the Rubber Ducky Ride. She also loved the flying fishes. The one dry "ride" sesame had when I was little was called Big Birds Nest. It consists of 3 stories of nets that you can climb all the way to the top. I HATED that place. The rope was rough and it was hard to climb. Of course it was Abigail's FAVORITE thing to do there. She climbed all the way to the top.
If given the choice between Sesame and DC I think Abigail actually enjoyed (in the long run)DC better. She LOVED the Nature and Science (Air and Space) museums. Outer Space is her new obsession. She and I will soon know anything and everything you can know about the planets (at least what comes in the childrens section of the library)
After DC we headed back to Charlotte for some downtime with our friends. Abigail's friend Meredith lives there and it is amazing to see these two's relationship. They are best friends even though they only see each other once every couple of months. It will be fun to see how it evolves once they get good at talking on the phone.
Will add more later. AB is awake!
