Last night we went to the circus for the first time ever! We went an hour early so the kids could go down on stage and they had a blast! I don't have ANY pictures because they wouldn't let me bring in my camera (because it had a removable lens) which made me really sad. They were able to watch the clowns up close, see juggling, a man on really tall stilts, the llamas, goats, and elephants up close, try on circus clothes (which was SUPER cute), participate in a juggling act, and watch a pre show down on the floor. We let them each choose something to get and Cailey chose a snow cone that came in the tiger cup she's holding, and Braden and Kinsey chose cotton candy which came in a clown hat (like Braden has on).
My favorite when I was a kid was always the trapeze act and I was so excited for them to see it. Poor Cailey wanted to close her eyes because she was worried they would fall and get hurt! She liked EVERYTHING the best! Braden liked the motorcycles in the circular cage the best, and Kinsey liked the elephants and tigers the best. brian doesn't remember ever going to the circus and was quite impressed with it as well! We had such a great time as a family and the kids were able to see things they had never seen before. The one thing I didn't realize was how long it lasted...I expected it to be 1 1/2 hours at the most and it ended up being 2 1/2! The kids were tired and went right to bed when we got home (even with all the sugar and excitement they fell right to sleep:).

I haven't been to the circus in ages! Too bad about the camera I am sure there were a lot of great pic from the pre show things they got to do. I am glad that all had a great time!
