The Sesame Street crew means a lot to a lot of people. For Twitter user Maddy Cunningham's mother, who also happens to be a kindergarten teacher, Elmo, Big Bird, Bert, and Ernie, are all lifelong heroes...which is what made a surprise visit to the actual set to meet the real-life Muppets such an overwhelming and beautiful experience. Maddy tweeted pictures and videos of her mom's joy, and they quickly went viral!


Maddy's mother's shock at being told she's about to visit the Street is priceless.


She could barely make it through the door...

Once inside, however, she snapped some unforgettable pictures on the iconic set.


Just when she suspected the experience was ending, things escalated to the next level.


And Ernie wasn't the only neighbor who stopped by to say hi...



Maddy's mom's students will surely be jealous!


Twitter could not handle the level of cuteness on display.


Who wouldn't want to visit Sesame Street?


If anyone's looking for a good Mother's Day gift, remember this. It might be the best one in existence!
