A Very Furry Christmas at Sesame Place, 2013

The girls took a half day at school last Friday and we popped down to Langhorne to see our friends at Sesame Place for A Very Furry Christmas!

The ride took a little longer than we had planned, by the time we got there the sun had already set.

And funny, December in Pennsylvania feels like December in Connecticut!

My, what big eyes you have!  We were bundled and layered and ready for action.

Sesame Place is decked out and GOR.GEOUS.  Take a walk through their Christmas Tree Forest as you enter the gate, then visit the Neighborhood to see the buildings in lights. The whole park is decorated with more than 300+ Christmas trees.

and the big mama-jamma (it has a nicer name than that in real life) has a light show – so cool!

We came in 2011, the first year for the Fury Christmas and it’s been expanded in the past 2 years.  A new addition:  Sesame Place’s Furry Express, all aboard!!

Murray and Grover were there to visit while folks were waiting for a ride!

Take a tour through the Twiddlebugs’ Gingerbread Cookie Factory on the trackless train ride. When ‘ALL ABOARD!’ is called and the train departs, travel past vignettes of our cute little Twiddlebugs creating their irresistible chocolate gingerbread cookies. Along the ride, enjoy silly music, sound effects and the delicious aroma of freshly baked gingerbread cookies everywhere! There are plenty of fun photo ops along the way and everyone can sample the famous Twiddlebug gingerbread treats at the end of the Sesame Place Furry Express journey.

Sesame Place at night, with the lights, the decorations, and cooperative children…  so magical.

The parade is always my favorite part of our visits, I love watching everyone else watch.

2 years ago at A Very Furry Christmas, Little Girl let us in on her secret lifelong wish… she wanted to catch a poof that shoots from the float when Abby Cadabby gets her magic spell right.  We caught some that night, and at almost every parade we’ve attended since then.  We have quite the collection.

 

Like last time we lingered at closing, we played among the trees and lights by ourselves for a few minutes.

and we couldn’t wait to come back the next day – in the SNOW!

(stay tuned.)
