A Night At The Circus

One of the great perks of having a Review Blog is working with PR people (Thanks Claire!)for some fabulous local events.  I was very fortunate that I not only got to host a giveaway of some tickets to the Ringling Brothers Circus, but I got the chance to go see them as well.  We had fabulous seats.  We were located right in the middle of the arena about 10 rows up.

The kids have been excited for this day for WEEKS!!!!!
Mommy's 2 Clowns :0)
This is pretty much what Gauge's face looked like the entire time we were there!! So many awesome things to see!
Before the circus actually starts, you can go down on the floor and meet some of the performers and try on costumes, etc.  Here is Grace wearing one of the performer's fancy glittery jackets.
Pretending to ride one of the circus ponies.  Notice Gauge's little light saber. It didn't leave his side the whole night!

The circus was filled with not only awesome performers, but tons of animals too. They had tigers, horses, elephants, dogs, and even a porcupine.

Right around intermission, the kids started getting antsy and each had a moment of "melt down."  But, once the elephants walked out into the arena they were once again mesmerized!

They were so stinking cute! If they didn't weigh like a ton or something, I just want give them a big ole hug! :-)
The Elephant congo line!

What's a circus without a juggling act?

Every single act of the circus with as not only action packed but super duper colorful!

At the very end, they brought out everyone for a final bow. Spectacular!







 We had a fabulous fun filled day as a family!  These are memories that are going to last a lifetime!

  3. How awesome...I know jealousy is a bad thing, so I won't say I'm jealous. But if jealousy wasn't a bad thing...then that is what I would be! :-)

  5. That looks fabulous. It has been forever since I've been to the circus. Both my girls went during their Kindergarten year on a field trip, but I was never able to go. I can see why there were mesmerized - look at all the colors and action. Glad you all had a great time.
