Circus Time!

A little known fact is that if you send your baby's birth certificate in to the Barnum and Bailey's Circus prior to your child turning 6 months you will get a free ticket to the circus of your choice with no expiration date!  Luckily, we had a great friend that sent in our children's and we got to enjoy the circus with just the cost of 2 adult tickets!

We kept the secret until circus day about where we were going.  We headed out early in the morning and began giving clues about 45 minutes into the drive...there's lions there...there are acrobats...there are clowns...but it wasn't until I started spelling it and Brady sounded out the letters when they discoverd it was the CIRCUS!!!  This was the first circus for Ben and the kids and I am not sure who enjoyed it more.  The show was well over 2.5 hours and the 5 of them sat mesmerized the entire time!

We arrived early enough to go down on the floor for the floor show.








Next came show time!

They were in awe!





Crazy clowns!

Dragons!

Dancers!

WOW!!

Motorcycle on the tightrope with 2 acrobats!

Cameron's favorite!  The lions and tigers!

The kids couldn't believe the man jumped through the fire!

They loved seeing the jumps and stacking the people up!


Aubrey was sure an acrobat was going to fall!

Brady loved the doggies...he patiently waited until act two for them!


Elephants!

This was Matthew's favorite!  Eight motorcycles jumping and doing tricks in this globe!

The finale with the big dragon!

We can't wait for next year!
