Off to the circus

The circus is back in town - The Perry Brothers - and its a very small circus. The children were so excited and we took Hugh's friend, Nathan along with us. Of course no cameras were allowed in the Big Top - boohoo - just as well...the light was shocking! And the animals were for show only - not part of the performance. But any opportunity to see my beloved "elies" is a good one. With the exception of two small ponies, the performance was made up of juggling and clowning and balancing. Thought of you Texas Wen, with the finale they came dressed out in what seemed like Texan attire and cracking whips and lassoing! Good fun! The kids had a giggle so that is what counts. But no good "click fix" for this Mamma this weekend :(

The elephant photo is great! Sounds like you had a great time! It's a shame when you can't take pics of the kids having fun!
