Hadley can hardly believe it.
About to get hugged:
Here she is after he hugged her. Look at that face.
This picture is of Elmo saying goodbye to the crowd. The lady on the left is his "bodyguard" if you will. She led him around and sort of spoke for him. She'd say things like, "Elmo needs to go now. He'll be back soon!" All the while the crowd is nonstop following him around clicking "just one more" picture, and kids are cooing, "Elmo! Elmo!" Hadley and I included.
It was a fantastic day. Later, while we were eating lunch, Hadley asked me where Elmo went. I told her that he needed to eat lunch and then go take a nap. To this she said, "No he isn't going to eat lunch and take a nap because he has a tail." Can't argue with that kind of logic.
