Don't you just want to run away and join the circus?

I think Emma does.

I want a big red nose I want some floppy shoes
I want a squirty flower squirt it on you
Like all the bad clowns do
I want to juggle bowling pins in the sun
I want to join the circus, the circus looks like fun

(Just a little Cross Canadian Ragweed! Sorry, I just had to, this song has been stuck in my head for days! And now its in your head too!)

I took her to the Carson & Barnes Circus last night with Brittney, Kinsley, Alex, & Kirk. The kids had a great time, but before I post the pics, I have a little something to rant about...

We got there right at showtime, so we split up. Alex & I stayed in the concession line to get snacks, and Brittney took the two girls & Kirk to find seats. Now I didn't witness what happened because I was in line forever, but Brittney told me this... The circus worker escorted Brittney, by herself with TWO toddler girls, and a little boy, to the top of the bleachers. The girls couldn't climb the steps, so Brittney carried them. Both of them. When they arrived at the empty seats, an unknown woman wouldn't make room for them, telling the worker "we came to SEE the show". The worker told the woman how rude she was being, apologized to Brittney, and then helped Brittney by carrying Emma to some more seats on the other side of the big top. I just have to ask what kind of person does this to an woman alone with THREE kids! TWO of which couldn't climb the bleachers by themselves. Someone who is a witch or the other word. But, I am very impressed with the circus worker. I wish I knew who he was so I could thank him.

Now back to the fun of the night...

Feeding the animals at the petting zoo.

Em actually fed the goat! I'm so proud!

At intermission. I couldn't get a picture where everyone was looking. But 2 out of 5 ain't bad, right?

Kirk wanted to feed the ox again.

Riding the train!

The Amazingly Strong Alex...

And the High Flying Emma...

Who, also, dances...
The salsa, apparently!

The girls watching the elephants.
Our favorite part!

We had a good time, but everyone was exhausted by the time it was over!
