The Circus

The family-wide chanting of, "the circus, the circus, I love the circus" (a la Bug's Life) has finally paid off and circus day has arrived! Everybody had a great time at the circus today, and it was such a treat to just go out and have fun (and have the kids entertained by somebody other than me!) for a few hours.

The kids agreed that their favorite part was "everything" but at the end of the day the motorcycles riding around the sphere of doom and the trained dogs seemed to have edged out the trapeze artists who came in at a close third.  The kids were also strangely transfixed by the chair balancing guy.

Also, the pink cotton candy won out as the treat of choice, although popcorn was also popular (probably because it was half the price of cotton candy) and Sam really, really enjoyed his plain snowcone.  That's right, he paid $3 for a cup of crushed ice.  Sadly, I remember doing the same thing as a child.

3/4 of the kids pose in front of the 3 rings at intermission - over Sam's shoulder is the bear you could pay to sit next to and have your photo taken.  They kept him happy by feeding him handfuls of raisin bran.  It was equally wrong and entertaining.

In case you're wondering how to eat cotton candy with maximum messiness, this is it.
