Our life is a circus


A few weeks ago we saw some coupons for a circus and decided it would be fun to take the grandkids. Since it was in the gym of a small town high school we knew it wouldn't be a big thing, but the babies are only 1 and 3 so we knew they would be thrilled with any of it. Mom & dad decided to tag along, and we let them, lol.


PaPaw and I held seats while the parents let the kiddos get their faces painted. One thing my grandkids is teaching me is to live in the moment more and I find myself leaving the big camera away while I play with them. Such is the case this day, we just took the little point and shoot like "normal" people, instead of photographers.


I had to get a closer peek though.


Wonder what Tristan is going to become?


He makes a GREAT tiger, doncha think?


Adrianna just got a cute little sparkly (pardon the boogies please). They had a really good time munching on popcorn and cotton candy while watching their performers.


Their daddy (our son-in-law) even got to be a part of the show.

  15. Sometimes those small, free circuses are the best! There is a group that comes through this area every year, and once Eler Beth got to be in a hula-hoop contest in the big ring. We still like going to their shows when they come through.
