It's A Circus Around Here!

Today my mother-in-law, Marsha, and I took all three kiddos to the Greatest Show on Earth. The kids all had a blast - and so did I! I don't know what it is about the circus, but it just makes you feel like a kid again. It was so fun...

They had elephants, tigers, horses, and even zebras. They also had these huge "sway poles" that almost touched the ceiling. Two of the acrobats climbed up the poles. They did a bunch of tricks while at the top and then slid down. That was Clayton's very favorite part of the day. They also shot two people out of a cannon. That was Makinley's favorite part. Morgan wasn't willing to pick a favorite - she said it was all her favorite. I couldn't agree more!

It was fun to watch their little faces light up and remember what it was like to be a child. It made the crowds, cost, and traffic all worth it. :)

Grammie and all her kiddos.

Clayton totally in awe of the sway pole act.

I bet you don't remember riding an elephant when you were about 4? Your expressions were just like some of Clayton's.

I LOVE the circus!!! I always wanted to be the one shot out of the cannon. That "awe" shot is precious. :)
