Circus, Circus...

No, We didn't go to a hotel in Vegas. We went to the Carson and Barnes Circus that came to town.

It was actually a pretty nice circus. We went to another one 18 mons ago and it was odd, very odd, did I say it was odd?

Anyway, the first thing the kids did was ride on an Elephant...

4 kids was $24 to ride for 30 secs... that's $.80 a sec.

They had all the regular acts, animals, trapeze, contortionist, hula hoop girls, some motorcycle guy, clowns (AKA guys with red noses EEEEEEK) and cotton candy:D

Lydia was terrified and watched the whole show with her small hand clasped firmly on her mouth. If you popped her right hand off her face, she'd immediately pop the left one up.

Afterwards we found out she loved the "girls in orange with the pelephants" and hated those "guys with red noses". She got in bed with me last night saying that she couldn't sleep because of those red noses... poor baby.

I took loads of pics of everything. I did hate the lighting that they have in those giant tents!

Here are the girls in orange with the elephants.

This guy was part circus part side show. Freakin' weird. He must have been born without some normal body part, like ligaments or extra joints or some such oddness, I googled but didnt find him.

The girls liked the Hula Hoop girls too. Those suckers must have been heavy!

I always think the ribbon dancer girls are just so pretty and graceful!

EEEEK cover my eyes, it's a man with a red nose.

They paraded the animals all around and we were in "box seats" (ha ha ha) and they came really close.

There was this motorcycle dude who rode on a wire, well half way through it broke. The girl under him looked freaked out and they finally pulled it back and out of the way.

This odd human hamster wheel contraption was really close to us and the people walked on the outside blindfolded and even jumped rope.

They had these cute little puppies doing tricks too!

Just a little clown and circus girl dance action!

Cutest little circus goer ever! It was soooo humid and her hair looked soooooo fantastic it, me I looked like a hot poodle.
And here they are on their 30 sec elephant ride :D

You got some great pictures from your VIP seating! I will second that it was, in fact, a very good circus for our little town!
