Our night at the Circus-AWESOME

First let me start off by thanking Mom Central and Feld Entertainment for an amazing evening. My family went to the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus Over the Top last night and it was the most fun we’ve all had as a family in a long time. If you get the chance to go, GO! It has been at least 25 years since I’ve been to the circus and my kids have never been and Rob couldn’t remember ever going either so this was a memory we will cherish for a long time.

Mom Central set us up with a nice meet and greet before the actual show were we met other mom bloggers. But even better we got to meet the circus performers and take pictures then head to the stage area and watch a circus carnival with dancers, stilt walkers, acrobats and jugglers. They had costumes to try on and props to sit on and everyone was so welcoming and sweet. You’d imagine having to deal with so many people all the time you might get tired of smiling and posing for pictures but these people were NOT. Gracious and inviting is how they treated everyone.

We took way too many pictures so I’m sharing way too many with you but honestly they don’t do the circus justice. I’m not sure what I was expecting but I was in awe most of the time. The kids didn’t make a peep expect for Shae who kept clapping and saying “yayyyyyyyy”. She cheered the elephants and dogs and motorcycles. Tom the Clown was a huge hit with Shaun, his favorite part was when Tom heckled a late comer and used her cell phone to play Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. Sabreena’s favorite act was the Trapeze, the flying artists were so graceful and precise it was absolutely amazing. I must say the Rob and I share the same favorite, 7 motorcycles in a steel ball. I was so freaked out that we were going to witness a crash I thought my eyes were going to bug out of my head. This stunt had to take sooooo much precision and timing and trust, again I was in admiration the whole time.
