During the last weeks of summer, while we were at Gramma’s house in Port Austin,  we went to a circus.  It was Miss R’s first circus.  And it did not disappoint.

There were elephants.

There were camels.

And we were enthralled.

There were also jugglers, hula hoopers, tigers, clowns, small dogs, and twirlers of all kinds.  But I didn’t get pictures.

However, Miss R STILL talks about her camel ride, and how she did not want to ride the elephant under the big top.  She is also sad that she didn’t get to jump in the bounce house, but very happy that she got to see the tigers leap and the juggler throw flames.  She also remembered the man standing on the horsey (“that wasn’t very nice”).

It was a lot of fun to see a circus under a big top in a small town.  I was actually more interested than I thought I would be.  Some of the things those people are capable of are simply astounding.  And they do all those twirls and tricks with so much grace.  It makes me want to go to Vegas and catch a Cirque De Soleil show.

Any happy circus memories out there?

  1. HOW Wonderful!! All by herself on the camel!! My “boss”, Carol was recently in India at one of our offices and she rode an elephant with some other people. It had a big platform on it!! But she did not get to ride a camel. : (

    I bet a live circus is a really great adventure.
    I agree with her about the man standing on the horsey… unless the horse was standing up, in which case… tell her that’s okay – especially if he was twirling a rope!! Woo Hoo.

  2. How fun! I love the circus. Max and I went to the circus when it was in Boston when we were first married. Since then we’ve been to see two Cirque du Soliel shows and watched a Cirque du Soleil movie on the big screen. Plus there’s the Chinese acrobat show we just saw in Beijing but now I’m just showing off! :) Don’t need kids to be a kid.
