The Circus!

A few weeks ago, we got the opportunity to go to a circus.  It was the kids' first time to go to a real, 3-ring circus. 

We saw clowns!  Anthony wanted nothing to do with this clown.

The four big kids all got a pony ride.

Cotton candy!

Anthony had never had cotton candy before.  He liked it.  Let's just say, we all got a little sticky.

Joseph was ready for the circus to start.

The flying trapeze was awesome!

The tigers performed tricks.

A family of unicyclists.

This performer did tricks on and off the back of the horse.

Clown comedy act.

Intermission and time for a little lunch.

Dominic made a funny face for the camera.

The kids all loved watching the dogs do tricks.

And the elephants!

This huge elephant balanced on this ball and rolled it a little ways.  It was very amazing, yet looked so ridiculous!
We had a fabulous time at the circus and it will definitely be a great memory for us all!

Anthony, I'm with you. Clowns are scary. I've only been to the circus once, when I was in college. It would be really fun to take the kids!

I went to a 3 ring circus once when I was a kid and I have very fond memories of it. I remember wanting to be in the circus for a while. It is even more fun to watch your own kids enjoy it!
