The circus is coming to town

Once a year a small circus stops in our little town.  I love the noises, the bright colors, the smell of popcorn and peanuts and the amazing slapstick comedy.


How can you not get excited about a circus?
 

There are clowns…


 trained animals…
Yes, that's me on the back of an elephant with Ashtyn and her Mommy.

 acrobats…

trapeze acts…

the Ringmaster…

and (did I mention??) the CLOWNS!

This post is dedicated to my blog friend, Lisleman @ A Few Clowns Short

  1. wow a dedication thank you thank you - so unexpected. So I be worried about a pie-in-the-face coming next? Your pic - great - but I can't help but notice that you are NOT waving to the camera. Did they need to pry your fingers off that bar after the ride was done?

    I sure hope your circus was NOT a few clowns short.

  3. I have been so brainwashed, and that's not a good thing, is it? I just assumed that all circuses not RBB&B were second rate, but I'm guessing that's not actually the case - and that they may be a whole lot cheaper and have more chances to interact. Love the photos - and how fun was the elephant?

  4. Great pictures!! I got to ride on an elephant too with my sisters! :)

    Have you ever been to see the Ringling Brothers Circus? We did twice. Once when we were little and just recently; I think it was sometime before my b-day. :)

    Have a great day! ♥
