For my birthday, the O'Briens got us a few tickets to the Ringling Bros and Barnum Bailey Circus. It was on Saturday (before easter) at the Patriot Center at GMU. We went early because they had a little preshow where we were let down on the arena floor and had a few mini-shows.
Some clowns were walking around and entertaining the crowd while we watched acrobats, elephants and a donkey/zebra hybrid, which was interesting.
Jack slept through all that, but woke up for the show and cried when the crowd first "Ooohed" and clapped. It scared him, but he rallied and would clap when everyone else did and watched the crowd as much as he watched the show. He thought it was fascinating.
Allie and Colleen, two of the three cousins.
We all had a great time - even though we left after the intermission because it was Jacks bedtime -I wish I could have stayed for the whole thing.
