Trip to the Circus!

The Shriner's Circus was in town a few weeks ago so we took the kids to see it. We had front row seat on the side where all the acts came in, so everyone walked right in front of us on the way to the rings. It was pretty cool, although a little freaky to be that close to the elephants. :oP This is the Hula Hoop lady from Yugoslavia. She was pretty darn cool!
Tatum liked the aerial artists, as they are called now (didn't they used to be acrobats?). Although she told me later that I didn't get a picture of the green lady that she liked, only the "Star Lady".
I think Teagan was pretty amazed by the elephants.
The "Star Lady". Notice the stars on her outfit.

This is the very cool contortionist from Mongolia. She is one powerful little woman.
All in all, the kids had a great time. They ate too much popcorn and cotton candy. And of course, after seeing the little boy ride a dirt bike through the Globe of Death, Travis asked "Daddy, daddy, when can I get a dirt bike like that?" Uh, let me think about that one.
