We went to the Circus





We went to the Ringling Bros/Barnum and Bailey Circus this week. Our good friends, Kay and Gary, invited us, and I didn't hesitate. I love the circus. We had an excellent time, dinner first, at the excellent JT Schmid's Restaurant & Brewery, across the street from The Pond, the circus, then a stop at DQ on the way home. Doesn't get much better than that.

There's so much action, movement and general excitement at a circus performance, it was hard to get great shots. I took tons of photos, and about 10-15% are acceptable, but it wasn't about the photos, it was about the good time that we shared.

The closest I've ever been to a circus is reading Water for Elephants.

What fun circus shots! These bring back lost of pleasant memories of my childhood visits to the circus with my family, and makes me want to attend one again. Thanks
Hugs and blessings,

I love the circus! So expensive to take all of my kids, but I will when I know that they will all enjoy it! My in-laws took my daughter and son on my daughter's birthday, they had a blast!
