The Circus!

A few days ago I had heard that the "real" circus was in town and suggested that we could go because I remember going when I was a kid and I loved it! So we surprised Carson! Caitlin is still young and restless so we made it a mommy and me date instead of fun for the whole family. Carson was super excited just to see the Power Balance Pavilion and we hadn't even made it into the arena!

Once inside, the noise was overpowering {and a little obnoxious if you ask me} but then again we were at the circus! Oh, and don't get me started on all the outrageously priced concessions and circus paraphernalia they sell and all the people who buy it-no wonder we are in debt people!

Waiting for the show to start watching the pre-show clowns...then lights out! The show was about to begin!

The show opened with the Star Bangled Banner with a patriotic elephant. I don't know what it is about elephants but I really like them! They had 8 total and I just kept thinking "where in the world do they keep these things!"

There was plenty to look at; clowns, elephants, jugglers, "tall" guys, gymnasts, tigers, trapeze artists, horses, zebras, strong men, and a crazy guy that was catapulted from a cannon across the court literally on FIRE!

Carson of course loved everything FIRE and commented on how brave the guy being shot out of the cannon was!

Just before bed, Carson said, "this has been such a fun day!"
That just makes it worth it right there!

Next time Andrew can take Cait and Carson while I stay home with little one
(29 weeks btw! Going by WAY too fast!)
