The kiddos liked it
Well, for the most part. Annie has always been suspect/scared of people dressed as large characters & Denver crashed early on. But Brynny Bear loved every minute.
It is also worth noting that we were in fact THOSE people who were walking through the streets of Bricktown at 8:30 PM back to our hotel with 2 small children & a baby in tow.
However, there is no need to be concerned about what anyone we came upon thought about our mad parenting skills because clearly the two gigantic Elmo/Cookie Monster helium balloons we were wrangling in the Oklahoma wind sealed the deal on how much we cared about our little ones & how classy we are.
