The Greatest Show on Earth


As a birthday present for both children, I took them to the circus.  We thought about taking them for the past couple years but really wanted them to remember it.  This year seemed to be the best year for it before Nate was “too cool” to go.  Although, the circus is so much fun, I can’t imagine him telling me that he doesn’t want to go in 2 years but we’ll see.

We made sure to get there an hour early so we could see the floor show and what we got was amazing.  I ordered our tickets over the phone and had them at will call.  Security let all the will call (10 of us) in the lobby before the gates opened so we got in the door FIRST!!!  We made it down to the main floor before anyone else!  OMG!  I was so excited!!!  Even the security didn’t know if it was ok for us to be there.  We were greeted by a clown and the fun began.  Both children were amazed.  I’ll let the pictures tell the story.

It was very sad to leave the floor show.  Specially when we found out how high up we had to sit.  But, at least we got to see all three rings without the frustration of being too close.  Don’t you hate when that happens.  Sheesh.  I won’t bore you with all the views from up in the nose bleed section, just a few…

All in all, both of the children were simple amazed and excited about going.  They both would have wanted me to have a wad of hundreds so they could buy every cool toy on display so they could drop it by the door when they walk in that night and never pick it up again.  Yeah!  Isn’t that what toys are for?!?!  Our hand tattoos (picture at the top) I made Steve take a picture of before they got ruined.  Sarah’s lasted the longest, maybe she just is a dirty girl, maybe she washes her hands very carefully.  Your call.

I do have to agree, it is the Greatest Show on Earth.
