Circus love!

We went to the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus: Barnum 200 last night and it was so much fun!! We had great seats-- again-- and the show was wonderful-- again. I loved The Torres Family!! The Torres Family performs with 7 motorcycles in a 16-foot steel sphere, where speeds can reach up to 65 mph. It's crazy! We saw them 2 years ago and it was just as exciting to see them again!!!

Taj and Liv loved the animals. The elephants were super cute, for being so ginormous. Seiuli loved the trapeze artists. They were pretty amazing!

Everyone had a great time. We got to go to the pre-show party, hanging out with the performers and eating yummy food.

Then we went down on the circus floor before the show and got circus tattoos, tried on real circus clothes and got up-close and personal with some jugglers!! The kids loved it!
