I'm not sure why, or how, but one of the moms at Lillian's preschool had a whole bunch of coupons to go to the circus. She gave us two free kids and a buy one, get one free adult. We'd never been to the circus before and it sounded almost free, so we gave it a go.
I thought it was pretty fun, the circus part and spending time with my South Tucson neighbors, whom I don't see very often, except on the bus.
There were lions and tigers. I explained to Lillian that there was a boy lion on top, and then a girl lion next to him, which lions then became 'Daddy' and 'Mom.' The other tigers became 'Lillian' and 'Nora.'
Our kids were pretty squirly, so we didn't get any good pictures of the aerialists, jugglers, the contortionist, the elephants, the Amazing Peruvian on the Circle of Destiny (which was my favorite part by far), the lame clown, or the BMX stunt biker.
Tyler did manage to capture this gem on the pretense of taking a picture of the bear (which is obscured by the ringmaster). Remember I said we got to spend time with our South Tucson neighbors?
It's kind of hard to read. The first word is Trust. As he was there with a woman and was holding a very small baby, it appears that he's not taking his own advice.
Also, we found a new life's ambition for Tristan and Jack. They made an announcement that we weren't supposed to take any movies, so I chided Tyler good naturedly when I saw he was taking video. Then, I was disappointed that he didn't get the 3 bikers, because that was cool.
