The Circus

A Couple of weeks ago the circus was in town. Haylee saw the tents and thought that it looked like fun. I had never been to a circus before so I kinda wanted to go also. I mean I have been to like circus circus in Las Vegas, but I am not sure that is the same thing. Anyway it was pretty neat. They had a lot of good acts. It was nice to do something like that as a family. They had two jumbo elephants that were giving everybody rides. Haylee didn't get to ride the elephant but I don't think she was too heartbroken, I dont know if she would have liked it much anyway.
Haylee talked her Dad into buying her one of those light sticks. She loved it, I think she pretty much has him wrapped around her little finger. I think that is the way it is supposed to be though. They went to get snacks and came back with a light stick, popcorn, and a slushy. She is one lucky little girl

They had a dog show act, and a show with pigs that was pretty neat. They pulled a baby pig out of like a mail box and put it in a stroller and had the mom pig get up on two legs and push the baby. I thought that was pretty cute. The only thing I was disappointed about was I wanted to see more acrabats. I like the people that walk on the tight rope and swing from bars and catch eachother, I think that stuff is cool. There was one guy that walked on this spinning wheel thing, kinda like a hampster, that was pretty neat.
I think we had a pretty good time, and now I can say that I have officially been to the circus. I like doing things like this as a family and wish that we could do more. I am hoping that this summer we will be able to go on a little camping trip. Of course we will probably practice sleeping outside in the tent in the backyard first just to see how the kids do and then go someplace fairly neerbye just incase.
