lifes a circus

The end of April brought the circus to town. So we decided to take the kids and re-live our younger days. (I remember going once when I was little and the only thing I remember was that we went the the Carnahan's -family friends- and that my dad had his hands on his ears the whole time and afterward said, I will never do that again. lol, my dad's not the biggest fan of crowds.)

Our kids LOVED it!

I thought it was pretty neat, kinda cheaply done, very long, and more focus on the toys and food you could buy then the actual event.

Waiting for the circus to excited!

thank you nice man for taking our picture

Trent brought the kids cotton candy....they were thrilled!

especially since I had just said no to buying anything under the tent.

Jordan was enchanted by all the lights and things going on.

these guys were from Kenya and were amazing and really funny

the bar ended up going to about 4 inches off the ground. crazy

sorry about the picture quality...I wasn't supose to be taking pictures. shame on me

this guy was an olympic diver a long time ago and I would have paid just to see him, I laughed so hard during his performance, even Audrey turned to me during it and with tears going down her face because she was laughing so much she turned and said, "Mom, this guys is Sooo funny."

and of course, the elephants...for all of about 2 minutes.

and lastly, the ringmaster was absolutley not smart, seriously. this crazy contraption would turn in circles and he would would run around the whole thing, first just inside it, then outside and then while he was running around and the thing was spinning he started jump roping. what!! he almost fell off once and it was a for real, almost falling off. Carson turned to Trent and said, " I don't like this, it's kinda scary."
not circus material. daredevil crazy...yes, but not for kids going to the circus.

besides that though, it was fun and the kids had a great time.
