Greatest Show on Earth!

Last Thursday we took Kaden to see The Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus. I have great memories as a child watching this show and of course the time we went in college.
We had great seats, except for the fact that we got to sit behind the family that doesn't believe in using deo for their BO! I couldn't decide if they or the animal pens smelled worse.
Seriously it was rough.
Though the rings are smaller,and more inflatable, than I remember but it was still a great show! Kaden was impressed and loved seeing all the animals.

Here he is waiting patiently on the steps. We were waiting for the behind the scenes tour of the animals to begin!

Burning off some energy by ...what else...jumping!

Family photo...Mommy' s hair looks so pretty after the nice light mist.
We were really close to these big guys. Kaden was fascintated and showed them how he can make their sound!
Kaden compared to an elephant foot! Don't worry I am pretty sure it wasn't real....I hope.

Meeting a clown..Kaden was obviously more interested in something over there.....

Mommy and Daddy Clowns!

Kaden wanted it off!
This is the closest we got to a picture of him wearing it!

Just a blonde head in the crowd. He jumped right in and was dancing and having a great time!
This was the pre-show. It was great to see the animals and acts so close
Ever see a $10 snowcone?

Well here you go.
ok, I know it was a souvenir but I did stand a few minutes waiting for the lady to hand me change from my $10 bill. Well it makes a great bowl for eating cereal.
BTW...the snowcone wasn't great. Really icee and most of it ended up in my lap.

How you could you look so tired watching this!

After two hours of circus fun it was time to go! We can't wait to go back!
