We got to take the kids to Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey presents Fully Charged last night. It was awesome. Before the show, we got to talk to the clowns and get their autographs. Will was a little weird — he'd talk to some of the clowns and not others. Madison ran from activity to activity they set up. If you watch the slideshow, you'll see how she and her friend Eva got to join one of the circus rings and dance. They also got to jump rope there too!
Here's what it looked like:
As you can see, the circus was a ton of fun for the kids and the adults. I love how they reinvent the show every single year. My husband especially liked how the clowns reenacted a lot of what we had already seen in their own funny and unique way. This is what my kids thought after the show. I have to apologize, but it was super cold out, so I took this video immediately after the show was over. We were in the van and well the audio is great. The video not so much. 🙂
The really cool thing is that this circus was Madison's friend Eva's first time. What I learned last night was that her mom hadn't even been to the circus either! When it was over, her mom texted me about how awesome the show was, so it's a hit with circus newbies and circus veterans alike!
