Summer Vacation – Tips for Staying Cool at Sesame Place!

Tomorrow we’re headed to Sesame Place for a few days!  Our bags are mostly packed and I’ve started to load the car for the 4-ish hour trip.  The girls and I are taking Titi, hubs is staying home (sorry criminals that want our 70 lb old skool tv!)  It’ll be about 90 degrees with a small chance of storms every day.  I imagine there will be a LOT of time spent at the water attractions, and layer upon layer of sunscreen.  I’M SO READY!!

I’ve got plans to take some fun pictures from interesting perspectives, including a waterproof/underwater camera for some fun in Ernie’s Waterworks and Slimey’s Chutes!

Helpful hint to remember – water shoes or sandals for the kiddies AND grownups – the water is nice and cool but that pavement is HOT!!

Another tip is if you can get your kids to wear sunglasses, do it.  Outside all day, the reflection of the sun on the water, sunburnt eyes are a real thing.  We’re lucky the girls have always liked to wear sunglasses, even when they were little-bitty.

(Big Bird’s Rambling River)

The giraffe sunglasses and the “jelly” maryjane shoes – classic queenvanna children style.

Of course, we are a visor family – they’re only $1 at the craft store (plain), they’re lightweight, they keep the sun out of your eyes and they’re ADORABLE when you add your own craftiness.

We have found lots of other ways to stay cool in the past, the larger dining venues are air conditioned, and so are the gift shops:

There’s several places throughout the park to purchase a cold drink, slushies, icecream and dippin dots (We love the Rainbow Dippin Dots, ourselves – and the stand is very near our favorite spot to watch the parade!)

And it almost goes without saying, but I’m gonna say it – hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.  You just don’t realize how much you sweat while you’re in the pools or tubes in the water, we’ve added just an extra glass or 2 of water to our day today to be sure we’re liquided up to start and we’ll be sure to drink lots every day, it’s so important!

(Mmmm, refreshing!)

^^^(I’d stay here all day if everyone would agree to it!) ^^^

P.S. I used pics from a bunch of years, I get questions a lot about what age kids will have the most fun and my answer (depending on the kids) is really any age – we’ve had a blast at all ages so far!

    Looks like a wonderful place for having fun! Even the heat can’t beat you down when there’s water around! Very good advice too! I sure wish Sesame Place was round when my children were little. Maybe I’ll get to go with grandchildren. Ahhhh some day. Thank you for window into your world, it was great fun!
