The Circus

Last year, while in Southern California for Thanksgiving with Micah's family - we saw a sign that said the circus was in town. We were so excited. We bought tickets and got Haylie all excited about the show. It turned out to be quite an interesting little version of a circus. It was in a little tent and the animals in the show included dogs and cats. The people in the show were the kind of people you actually think of associated with a circus but that wasn't necessarily a good thing. Needless to say it wasn't quite a Ringling Brothers, Barnum and Bailey Circus. I never knew there was a difference! So this year when Micah's mom heard there was a real circus in town she called her friend and got a box at Arco so we could all go. Unfortunately George and Sharon had to miss out at the last minute :( - they were really looking forward to seeing a circus that actually had elephants and tigers, etc!

Haylie, Kiley and Eli had sooo much fun at the circus. It was great because they could run around the box and then sit and watch. We even got there a little early so they could meet the clowns and try on the costumes. It's so fun to go to things like this, just to see the excitement and pure glee in the eyes of the kids!

How FUN! It looks like you all had a great time. I completely forgot about the cirus being in town.:( Did your little monkeys come home with any new acrobatic ambitions?

Love the photos! I'm going to have to steal a few since mine didn't come out that great. Time for a new camera I think. :) Thanks for such a fun time. I'm sure Eli dreamt of elephants and crazy acrobatics!!!!!
