Sesame Place: Monday, August 18th. Part one. A fun day was had by all!

Wooden slide, Smith Playground in Philadelphia

Smith Playground in Philadelphia. They have a wooden slide in which you use burlap sacks for extra speed. Jason joined in a few times! After the Please Touch museum & a greasy lunch we needed some downtime at the playground.

Jimmy Gs cheese steaks in Philly. Jason was excited and demanded this for lunch. Elliot had a hot dog.

Philadelphia’s children’s museum is called the Please Touch Museum. It’s housed in Memorial Hall, a grand building constructed to kick off the 1876 Centennial celebration. People from all over the globe came to Philly to celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the USA. I was impressed with the number of fun kid activities. Elliot loved the construction zone (sadly no pictures). At least I got some of him enjoying the city scenes, the water area & spinning in the hamster wheel!

Elliot loved swimming in the pool at our hotel

We decided to take a last minute trip to Philadelphia over the weekend. A two hour drive turned into a five hour+ drive. Pharell’s song Happy came on the radio at the perfect time for Elliot to cheer us up. We checked into our hotel in the City Center then walked toward Independence Hall & the Liberty Bell. Elliot was not interested to wait in line to see a bell! When you’re 4 there are more important things requiring your attention. Like picking up leaves and creating leaf sculptures. We walked toward Penn’s Landing and finally ended up eating some fantastic Chinese food at Han Dynasty for dinner.

Last Wednesday we spent the afternoon at the Brooklyn Children’s Museum with Langston and Eamon. Everyone had a grand time!
