The Greatest Show on Earth

Can you believe that in all my years, I have never been to the circus?  I'm sure that they must've come through our city when I was growing up, but this past Thursday was my first time, as it was for Jeremy and Grace, too. We were very excited!  We got there during the pre-show to see some animals and acts up close.  I don't know if it was because I had read Water for Elephants last month (I totally recommend that book, by the way), or if it was because of the protestors out front with signs protesting the treatment of circus animals, but Jason and I definitely enjoyed the human acts much more than the animal acts.  I loved the tightrope walkers, Jason enjoyed the acrobats, Jeremy liked the elephants, and Grace loved the tigers.  It was a very enjoyable evening for our family, though I'd definitely be ok if we didn't go to the circus again for a few more years.
