My survival technique for getting through this year's Outage is to just plan lots of fun things. Could be as simple as a lunch date or meeting at the park with friends or a trip home to see family. It keeps the days passing, things to look forward to, things to share afterward, and we sure have a great time in the process! So when I saw that the circus was coming to the city, I just HAD to find a way for me to get us there! Big events like that are a bit much for me to do on my own with the kids. From crossing the street to potty breaks with EVERYONE in tow to getting snacks, etc etc etc so I convinced the grandparents to come with us, and I do believe we all had fun!!
|while waiting for the show to start the kids got to go down the big inflatable slide and do a pony ride. You could also ride the big elephant but we passed on that one.|
|the kids' first pony rides. they were both so brave!|
|Eli got in the last ride right before the show started!|
|the show started with the chicken dance|
|The Shriners doing the chicken dance|
|Then all the motorcycles rode through|
|There was a live band playing throughout the performance|
|one of the performers|
|acrobats. they were pretty incredible.|
|and a lasso/rope guy|
|the spinning mouse wheel type thing|
|along with this were trampoline tricks, box juggling, and a short clown act|
|and the dancing elephant|
|three dirt bikes racing around in circles inside that metal sphere|
What a great show! The kids were captivated, even Carter who kept pointing at different things he saw! Thanks, Grandma and Grandpa for coming with us!!
