Coarseness on Sesame Street

This just heard on Sesame Street, as Telly Monster, Baby Bear, and Abby Cadabby are discussing the book "Action Dog". As they read, they hear sound effects that are clues to what Action Dog is doing. On the page where Action Dog is riding a motorcycle, they hear engines revving and spluttering, and Telly Monster exclaims, "I know, I know -- it's a herd of lactose-intolerant antelope who've just eaten a bunch of cottage cheese!"
How kind of them to give some humor to the over-8 crowd.

You're going over the side, Wolverine!

Coleman sez, I got you!

Tim and Maria with grub for the hungry troops.

The hot dogs were ok, but the BBQ sandwich was great.

Climb every mountain...

Everyone LOVED the mega slide. Why aren't adults allowed on this thing???

Here are some miscellaneous pics from when I was over the pond. (Captions are courtesy of Daddy.)

Billy likes to take Miranda to Kids' Place, an indoor gym of sorts with lots of stuff to climb, crawl through, and generally use to avoid and escape your parents. Miranda can fly through those elements in no time at all.

"Spider Munchie"

"Tunnel Vision Munchie"

"Wunchie down the chute!"

reading with cousin Jessica after "canastics"
