Time to go to the REAL circus!

A few weeks ago, we heard that Ringling Brothers Circus was coming to the arena by the house. Originally, we didn’t think we’d be able to go, as we’re working on saving for what looks to be where Isaac will be for Kindergarten next year (that’s another post…and I figured I’d spare y’all a few days of kindergarten drama…).

Boy were we shocked when Mom decided it was high time Isaac should go to the circus!

So, we drove down to the arena and got our tickets and saw all of the trailers and RVs and things that go along with a circus set up. We also discovered that there was a preshow an hour before, where you got to go down on the circus floor and interact with the circus performers as well as see some animals, and do some neato circus things.  We even made the social worker at Isaac’s morning program jealous-she’s a circus nut and went every year as a kid, because she lived downstate, and was able to hit Coney Island!

Isaac was way too excited and had trouble waiting…

Do we still have to listen to the guy sell programs? Can I just go in?And after what seemed like an eon, we got in!

We went right down to the floor for the preshow, and the first thing Isaac did was play dress up!

Sparkly circus vests!

and then we saw some jugglers…

A diablo and some rings!

We even got to get our very own clown noses!

Mommy! I've got a silly clown nose!

and even watched some silly clowns do a “high wire act.”

Ya know, that rope is on the ground!

Then, the show began…


There were Elephants-which were Isaac’s favorite! We saw jugglers, clowns and an amazing set of motorcycles in a globe of steel. 

we got cotton candy, which came with a Silly hat!

Sticky, sticky, sticky-it came with a wipe on the bottom!and laughed and laughed until we turned blue. 

it was one heck of a time had by all. We can’t wait until they come back into town next year!
