Nathan is Hebrew and means "gift from God" - we couldn't have been more blessed than to have been chosen as his parents!

Thank you for keeping up-to-date with Nathan. We hope you visit often and enjoy experiencing our son's journey as much as we do. Please feel free to leave comments.

We love hearing from everyone!!!!

The Adventures of Nathan...Sesame Place (Take Two)

Nathan loves everything Sesame Street, so it was a no-brainer to take him back to Sesame Place this year.  Danny didn't have much time to be away on this trip, so there weren't any fun side trips, just lunch, dancing, and hanging out with Nathan's bff's!

Nathan is really loving Cookie Monster these days and if you ask him what Cookie Monster does, he puts his hand up to his mouth and makes the eating cookies sound that we all associate with this big blue guy!! 
My favorite picture of the visit!

Last year, we scheduled a breakfast character experience, so this year it was all about lunch with Elmo and friends, which turned out to be a great decision. The major difference with the lunch experience, besides the food, was that the characters all sang and danced.  There was even a Congo line at the end where all the characters and lunch goers got into the act - including Nathan!

Nathan was mesmerized by seeing all his favorite characters, we couldn't get him to eat! No way!
His face is beyond priceless!  
That expression says it all!

Do you think Cookie thought Nathan was a chocolate chip? :-) He's giving him a kiss, but it looks like he's trying to eat him! 

Here are a few video's from lunch.  Super cute! 

Nathan even got to dance with Elmo! 

After lunch we were once again able to go backstage with the characters before the big street parade! 

Elmo was playing peek-a-boo with the Cookie balloon ~ it was pretty funny.  He was standing all alone, so apparently he needed to entertain himself!

In full disclosure, we have no idea what character this is, but he's super colorful! 


and more hugs!

This years' parade was really cool (much better than last year) and Nathan sat on Daddy's shoulders and danced the entire time! 

Thanks for stopping by!
