The Circus!!

Last Thursday, my parents treated all of us to THE CIRCUS! It was so fun. Heath and I went to the circus 7 years ago, right after we got married, but like most things, it's so different going to something with a child and being able to look at it through their eyes.

We had a blast.

We made sure to get to the circus early enough so we could go down on the floor and see some of the action up close.

Granddad and Ella being silly with their clown noses on.

This guy was insane. It was amazing what he could do on those things. Here he is jumping rope.

Ella's favorite part was the elephants. Her second favorite part was the "funny clowns".

Little miss priss sat on her daddy's lap with her legs prop up on the chair in front of her almost the entire time.

This was crazy!! They fit 7 motorcycles in that cage all going around and weaving in and out of each other at the same time. I was sweating I was so nervous.

Such joy!

It was so so so fun! Thanks Mom & Dad!

I've heard the circus is nothing like it was when we were kids, looks like it's still fun though! :)

Ella is like the perfect circus goer! She is so excitable and expressive, I can't imagine how much fun it was to watch her enjoy herself!!!
