Oh to be a kid again!  I knew my boys would like it but I wasn’t quite sure if the youngest two would be able to sit through the entire thing.  Well…they were glued to the show the entire time and haven’t stopped talking about it since. (Do you see anything funny about this picture?  It’s kind of like Where’s Waldo and I didn’t even realize it until I was editing the photos. If you aren’t sure, check out the floor. 😉 )

circus funMy six-year-old was in a trance the entire time the show was going and my two-year-old was SO excited with every new act that he couldn’t hold still.  You can just see the excitement on his face as the circus was starting!

CircusHis favorite part of course was the elephants.  He talks about elephants constantly and was so excited to see them come in.  I was amazed at all of the things they could get them to do.  What amazing and smart animals!
