A Very Sesame Birthday Bash

June 22, 2010 at 1:37 pm , by

Hi! My name is Jake Varjian, and I am one. Well, 16 months, if you want to get technical. My favorite pastimes are throwing bits of food off of my highchair tray and saying “uh oh,” running behind my toy push truck so Mom chases me, and charming the pants off of anyone who meets me with my giant cheeks and adorable dimples. One of my other favorite things? Sesame Street! I was so excited to get to go to the Sesame Place theme park a few weeks ago with my mom and my girlfriend, Isabelle. (She’s a cutie, right?) Sesame Place, in Langhorne, Pennsylvania, is celebrating its 30th birthday this year, so the park has all sorts of fun parades and shows and parties planned for the big year. Can you believe it’s been around that long? It’s as old as my mom! (Almost.) If you have little ones in your family, you might want to think about taking a trip to see Ernie and Bert and all my favorites. There are some cool water rides and areas for little kids like me, plus crawly nets and a rollercoaster for big kids, too. (I’m too small for that one.) Check out some pictures of me and my new friends on the next page.

Ernie and I have a little heart-to-heart.

Me and Isabelle loved Ernie’s Bed Bounce. No walking required!

This is the Rock Around the Block parade, which comes around twice a day. I boogied with Elmo!

Here’s to another 30 years of playing at Sesame Place!
