Under the Big Top

Tonight was a fun night for the kids - there was a circus in nearby Medina (where my parents live) at the fairgrounds, so the kids and I headed up there to see what it was all about. It was the Carson & Barnes circus - and it actually was very, very good. Lots of aerial acts, horses, ponies, little fluffy poodles and elephants. They are going all over Ohio and Indiana in the next month, I think, so if you are looking for something fun - check them out.

And the kids got to RIDE ON AN ELEPHANT...


Jessie now wants to be a trapeze artist and follow the circus (is anyone else thinking what I am - HELLO another broken leg here - ????)

Tyler just sat there wide eyed and watching everything. He wanted to see lions and tigers and bears - no such luck (our seats were about 15 feet from the edge of the ring - so I'm glad there were no lions and tigers.

It was a 2 hour show - and well worth the money to go see it.
Sorry for the crappy pictures - it was DARK in there.

Wow! An elephant and camel ride? That's awesome! I'd be worried about another broken leg, too!!!
