Circus Time!

Thursday night we went to the opening show of the Ringling Brothers, Barnum & Bailey Circus. The three kids and I were joined by Grandpa & Grandma for an exciting night of entertainment!

Let's Start the show...Zing, Zang, Zoom! (this year's theme)

Cool dancers...think Chinese Olympic Opening Ceremony!

Scary Acrobatics (Cirque Du Soleil style)

Silly Dog tricks...one of my family's favorites!

Ultimate Swing Set flying
(*notice the blurred man flying through the air at the top of the picture)

The Elephants...how do they do that?

and that?

Fire the cannons! (& performers! Whew!)

The Tigers...my favorite! (Love the Russian commands.)

The Big Finale


Sharing my life with the company girls~

Wow! What great pictures! I look forward to taking my three kids to a circus one day. I think I went to one as a kid, but that was soooo long ago. Our youngest will be 2 in July, and I doubt he'll be able to sit still long enough for the show. But one day we'll go - especially after seeing your pics :)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend ...

These are such great Circus pictures... whenever I go to the circus and take pictures they turn out horrible...
Honestly though, I can't remember the last circus I went to...

Wow! It looks like the circus was great, Angie!!! We took Daniel when he was just little and I still remember how much fun it was!
Ed and I just may have to take in a circus ourselves or take little Jaylon when he gets big enough! :-)
Thanks for sharing all of the great photos! I really enjoyed seeing them!!!
