RE-CHARGED!

On Easter Sunday we had an opportunity to go to the CIRCUS!  Yes, a HUGE thanks goes out to TMB for the 4 tickets to Ringling Bros Circus!  It was a GREAT way to spend the day with my family.  Because isn't that what holidays are about?  Spending time with family?

The "theme" this year is FULLY CHARGED, which is wicked fun...

We saw a cute baby Zebra, a few miniature horses, some jugglers, and THE CUTEST FEMALE CLOWN EVER.  She was adorable.  Even B'nut, who's not a fan of clowns thought the bee clown was STELLAR.... and all this before the show even started!  Here's my quick take on it - if you're going to the circus, you MUST go to the pre-show.  It's fun to get down on the floor, talk to the entertainers, see them up close, etc.

Then we got our popcorn, sodas and headed to our seats.  IF you are taking a small person (and by small, I mean 4ish) I recommend the "cheap seats", and here's why.  The circus is BIG.  The animals are big, the music is big, and the explosions... yea, big.

By sitting far away, it scaled everything back for B'nut so she could enjoy it more.  She sat on the edge of her seat the entire show.



I give the circus 2 thumbs up.  The music was great, the clowns were great, the big cats... were WOW, the elephants were cute... and everyone, including my H, got into the show!  Truly everyone enjoyed The Greatest Show on Earth!

Don't mean to be the lone sourpuss here, but I will never go to a circus. The animal abuse that takes place during "training" is horrendous. :(
