On Tuesday my wife and I took Harley to see Sesame Street 1-2-3  it was a great show. The kids were shocked to see all the characters come dancing thru right in front of them, dancing with them,  hugging them and making them feel special. This was an amazing show. Harley danced for 2 hours and loved every minute of it. If you get a chance to take your kids you will not be dissapointed. Well worth the money you will love seeing the smile on the kids face!!!!
