Winona Trip: Going to the Zoo and Meeting Parker

To kick off our Spring Break, we decided to take a trip to east Texas - to visit Jeremy's parents and to meet baby Parker! We headed down Saturday morning and back home Sunday morning, so we had to pack a lot into our trip! 

We spent most of our time there heading to the Caldwell Zoo in Tyler. I have not been to a zoo since a field trip when I was in elementary school. I will further confess that I didn't expect much of this zoo, thinking it couldn't be as good as a "big city" zoo.

Can You Tell Me How to Get...

We made our second annual trip to the Verizon Theatre in Grand Prairie to see Sesame Street Live, and Luke enjoyed it once again! They really seemed to raise the bar this time around with more appearances by the characters - it was very cool! 

First, we posed with the still characters. We got to see Bert and Ernie (who are total favorites of his), Grover, and Oscar (whose personality he seems to have adopted of late :\ ). 

Then, Ernie and Murray came out - in the FLESH! Luke is right there by Ernie's pant leg. He was fascinated. 

Then, it was time to sit in our seat like a big boy! He did a much better job of this than last year. 

Then: SHOWTIME! A year ago*, we were cracking up at the Count in a track suit. This year, Jeremy and I couldn't stop laughing and Bert in a leisure suit.  Awesome. : ) 

*So I found last year's post to create that hyperlink, and I totally had a moment about how much younger he looks. He is just getting farther and farther away from being a baby and growing into such a big boy. *Sniffle*

Here they are all in the finale. I think they found the instruments or something...? I don't really remember the plot. Shoot me. : )

All that really mattered was that Luke dug it and watched it all. 

We had so much fun!
