In other news.... We went to the circus a few weeks ago. And in true Chantal fashion I am just now getting to blogging about it.
It was.... Entertaining? There were elephants and tigers and dogs that jumped over things. There were tiny little foreigners that soared through the air with the greatest of ease and they even had a fat lady that could keep a beach ball spinning with her feet. It was intense to say the least.
In the middle of the greatest show on earth, they had an intermission where they let the kids come down on the floor and ride the elephants or ponies and you could get your face painted or even have your picture taken with a bear! The bear was extremely keen on Raisin Bran. I watched him down the entire box in a matter of minutes. We unfortunately didn't have any cash with us so there were no elephant rides for the Naugles which AnDee was very disappointed about. She kept asking why we couldn't ride and I would tell her we didn't have any money to pay for it. "Mom! I know! Just ask someone!" she said. The girl has got a solution for everything. It was more than a little frustrating to her that I wasn't willing to ask all the strangers around us for money.
My opinion of the circus? Would I go back? ... Absolutely. While I wouldn't say it was "high quality" entertainment, there was absolutely no question that it was entertaining and I enjoyed it immensely... maybe not in the way they had intended but I was entertained none the less.
The only pictures we got were from our phones... and are extremely poor quality. Sorry??
Its hard to see but she is standing in front of the white tigers (in the cage back there) WHILE wearing her white tiger shirt that Uncle Dave gave her for Christmas. She is the definition of cool.
