The Greatest Show On Earth

The circus came to town and the boys begged to go see it so we thought why not? We weren't really expecting to be amazed, but boy were we wrong! I've never been to a Ringling Bros. performance before and it is nothing like any circus I've been to! It was 2 1/2 hours of jammed packed entertainment. I would compare it to a Las Vegas Cirque Du Soleil show combined with animals, clowns, and even a human torpedo! The boys' and Weston and I were very entertained the whole way through! I wish I could have gotten better pictures, but I left my camera at home and my iPhone is not great at long distance shots. It might be hard to turn down the boys' the next time the circus is in town! Weston and I are already looking forward to next time!

One great thing about this circus is the animal open house before the show starts. We got to get up close and personal with the elephants, zebras, horses, and tigers! It was so cool!

We had to make a pit stop for treats of course!

Silly hat that came with Logan's cotton candy.

The biggest snow cone Carson had ever seen...he wasn't quite sure how to even eat it! :)

Again....sorry for the low quality pics. Here's a peek at a few of the acts we saw.

This is the Human Torpedo right before they set him on fire!

Off he goes...amazing! You couldn't pay me enought to do that job!
