the circus

We had a blast at the circus.
We got there 90 minutes before the show,
and were able to go see the animals before hand,
and a few pre-circus little shows.
Naomi didn't like the clowns up close when we got to see them before the show.
But when they were far away and acting silly she liked them.
Micah wasn't sure what to think at first but he did like all the action.
Micah was a little antsy, but it was nap time, can you blame him?
Once my dad bought some popcorn at intermission he was good to go!
That boy and his love of food!!!

Just a little photo disclaimer,
I didn't use my flash...that's why most of the photos are blurry.
I would have missed all the colors had I used my flash!

Yes, I know I dressed them alike,
I did it on purpose!
And did you know that red is the easiest color to spot in a crowd?
That's why they are wearing red (and it's my fav color),
so that I could spot them easier if they got away!







The elephant painted a picture and got two loaves of bread as its reward!












And this is what you get on the way home!

Love the pics! I really need to take my boys, they would love it- I always try to dress them in bright red or orange too when we go out in a crowded place- it really does help a lot!

Stopping by from NFF~ =)

I love the circus. I can't wait for my kid to be born and old enough to go enjoy it. I'm always impressed by the acrobats.
