Can you tell me how to get to Sesame Street?

One way to get there is to have your fun uncle, Brian, and your almost aunt, Christin, take you as a Christmas gift! On Saturday, Brian and Christin did a very brave and generous thing by taking two two-year-olds to see Sesame Street Live at the auditorium in Lowell. They took Mairead and Christin's niece, Ailish, who is just four months younger than Mairead. Ailish is also the daughter of my friend, Josh, and his wife, Becky. Josh and I have been friends forever, and now our little girls are becoming friends, too!

Brian and Christin picked the girls up on Saturday morning. Mairead was very excited already. Disclaimer- the beads were at her insistence- not my idea. She wore them the entire day. Before she left, we told her that she was going to see Elmo with her friend, Ailish. She calls her, 'aishish,' but that's close enough for now.

Brian and Christin did a fantastic job wrangling two toddlers and helping them to enjoy the show.

Sharing some snacks is a good way to start a friendship.

The girls were so good that Brian and Christin took them for lunch after the show.

Mairead and her godfather, having a little quality time.

They loved the show-- Mairead seems to have chosen Big Bird as her favorite.

When she got home, I asked her if she went to a show. She said, "Brian! Christin! Cool! Awesome!" I think that pretty much sums it up!
Thanks so much, Brian and Christin!!!

wow, Sesame Street! Good job, Mairead...that's a long time to sit and watch a show in the dark. Good thing Elmo and your friend were there to help.
