We went to the circus this afternoon! My kids had never been before so I figured I should take them before they get too old! I had always wanted to take them but never knew when it was coming. But this time I received an envelope in the mail with 20 free kids tickets, dates and times so that worked. We went to the 4:30 show and brought Bren's friend Richard. Man, was I surprised when we got in line how expensive the tickets were! I don't think I've been to the circus in over 20 yrs. but I know for a fact it was only a few dollars back then. Adult tickets were $20! Kids tickets were $8 but I had the free passes for them. Except for Richard since he's 14, and he looks it so I couldn't pass him off for 12 & under, LOL! Thank goodness a woman in line had some buy one get one free adult passes and was handing them out to whoever wanted one. I definitely took that! We went in and it was packed, but they found us 6 spots together on the nasty bleachers that were so uncomfortable they made your ass numb! All in all, it was a good time. They did the high wire tricks on the motorcycle, clowns, elephants, dogs doing tricks and the trapeze act. It was neat and the kids enjoyed it. And thank goodness we had the best weather! It was in the low 70's and perfect!
