The Greatest Show on Earth!

Or so they say! Friday our family went to see the circus! It was so much fun! A couple of girls from our Huddle group, Shelby and Jana, went with us, and we were all in awe of the amazing feats the performers did right before our eyes. The adults and 17-year-old girls were as entertained as the baby and 3-year-old! :) Jon bought a program, which came with a blinking clown nose...this was a great source of fun. After a wonderful evening at the VBC, we finished it off with drinks at Sonic, then headed home at the ripe old time of 10:15! Here are some pics of our evening...

We are on our way!

The elephants were Lawson's FAVORITE part!

Jordan the clown!


The trapeze is my favorite thing at the circus. I was pretty impressed with this sequence of pictures I took--the skill of the performers was really unbelievable!

Here is Clown Lawson at the end of the night. He LOVED it!
Overall it was truly A MAGICAL NIGHT!!!

Looks like everyone had a great time! I'm sure that Lawson had a ball and that he will be talking about it for months to come!

All clowns are creepy. Any guy wearing face paint shouldn't be allowed to be around children!

That sounds like fun! Lawson is at a great age for that. I didn't even know the circus was in town right now.

Since seeing the movie "IT" I will forever be creeped out by clowns.

Looks like everyone had fun! Was it a three ring type where there were several things going on at once, or were there main attractions taking turns?

Great hat on Lawson.
