The Circus is Here!

I got tickets to the Circus for my birthday last week from the O'Briens and this week we all got to enjoy them. It was at Patriot Center (George Mason University) so the parking was free (bite THAT Verizon Center).

We did run into some flack going in when we were accosted by some woman handing out literature about circus animals. She had company and security was watching the protesters close.

We all had a great time, Jack loved it, I loved it and Kate loved it.

except the protesters...


Thanks for the downer, guys. But I gotta say this tactic makes me want to go see the circus again next year, and the year after that. There has got to be better ways of protesting than to try and lay a guilt trip on people who just want to go and see a circus. Why not use your time to protest at the zoo?
