Ringling Brothers Came to Town!
I am so thankful Anita, who is wonderful and finding out this stuff…knew and asked if we wanted to go for a ‘field trip’!
So we did!
It was funny because each of the kids liked something different. These were Abby’s favorites…
We were UP HIGH…the top row…but our camera has a great zoom, so I got some good ones! and it was fun to have the ‘whole floor’ perspective!
The kids did well, but it was LOOONNNNGGG! JJ had 3 lollipops to help him stay in one place and content
We brushed his teeth really well that night…YIKES!
Poor Susie…she did well, but it was past her bedtime and she couldn’t crawl around…so she was ‘rammy’ and we didn’t get home til close to 11pm.
She did so well…all things considered!
Brandon’s favorite…the strong men. They were very strong and from Eastern Europe
Yes, this was CRAZY!!!!
We actually were on the side of the tight rope. We had an amazing view…looking down on it all…they are incredible!
JJ loved the tigers and keeps talking about them.
This was hilarious. The strong men came back on and did like a ‘dance routine’. I likened it to a figure skating pair…
Jared said, ‘well, the strong men sure are flexible’…honestly, so funny
Anita, being the smart woman that she is, had gotten a circus video so the kids could watch before and be prepared. There was a human cannonball in there and so most were excited…except one (her B) but then didn’t even realize this was IT when it came. It looked different in the video…anyhow, it was cool and they played a fun song, but I can’t remember which…
He came out as a ball of fire and was ON FIRE when he landed…I didn’t get that picture, unfortunately…
JJ had been asking about the elephants all night and loved them, but I think I did even more. I kept telling Jared that I wanted to go hug them. They seemed so kind and smart. Doing amazing things! Honestly, just look!
Fun Jumping Men…wouldn’t the NBA love to have their springs!
Ended with crazy tumbling…I wish I could do what they did…it just looked like so much fun!! so free and full of energy!
JJ has a fear of fireworks that had been going off (mini ones) during the night…but, he did ok. I hope he grows out of it…eventually, because we love them!
Out of focus, BUT we thought it' would be fun to take a picture of us with our friends on the parallel escalator…I almost didn’t make it before we had to get off…Jamie had the same idea!
Both Jared and I had only been to the Circus once in our respective fourth grade classes. We were excited to go back! It was fun, but also tiring since the kids are still quite little, but we’re so glad we did it and made more memories with our dear friends and Florida family…
