CiRCuS

I took my sisters and the kids to the circus today. It was my first really big outing by myself with the kids besides church, work, or the grocery store, and it went really well. My sisters spent the night and got to skip school to come with us, so the fun started way before we actually made it to the civic center. Kevin got us some AMAZING circus celebrity tickets (thank you Uncle Kevin!!), so we got to sit on the front row and even go out on the floor and take part in the circus. The kids were so precious with their little beaming smiles, bobbing up and down in their seats, and screaming 'zing zang zoom'. Their favorite parts were the elephants, the zebras, the tigers, and the cute little dogs that did tricks. We had such a wonderful time, and here are a few pics...

I had Maddi in a little backpack so she'd be easy to carry around while I was wrangling 3 other very excited kiddos. She just sat there wide-eyed and stared at all of the lights and people dancing around. I think she really enjoyed it...except when we went out on the floor for part of the show...she screamed her little head off! All of the cast members were trying to make her happy but there was no helping her.... once she gets going there's no stopping her. As soon as we went back to our seats, she was fine again. Oh well, I'm glad she enjoyed it for the most part. :)

HOW FUN!! Chris and I were going to take Noah this year but Eden ended up getting sick so we can't. Bummer! It looks like so much fun. I've only been to one circus and that was just a few years ago.

Ah! I kept going back and forth on whether or not to take Mark. But it looks like an awesome time!
