The Greatest Show on Earth!

Last night we took all of our 6 little girls (and all the adults) to the Ringling Bros, Barnum & Bailey Circus. And we just had an absolute BLAST!

Working for the Newspaper has very few perks, specially with the economy and the Internet they way they are. But one of the perks we still do have, is being invited to attend special events. They send us complimentary tickets. Myself and three other employees scarfed ALL 28 tickets!

If you have never been to Ringling Bros, and they come to an arena close to you, make every effort to attend. It is the single most entertaining experience.

To the Elephants:
And the Acrobats:

And a never ending stream of Clowns:

It was amazing. All the kids were on the edges of their seats and the parents enjoyed it even more.

Afterward we invaded McGuire's Pub for Dinner:

BTW, Happy Birthday Joe!

It was just way too much fun! You can tell, we all just hated it.
Even Harley enjoyed his souvenir!

I hope you all had a great weekend too!

Ooops, correction: There were 6.5 Little girls! Monica is preggers and we just found out she's having (BIG SURPRISE) a.........GIRL!

Gosh, I haven't been to a Ringling Bros. circus since I was ten years old! OF course that was or so years ago? lol
I hope one comes near us soon, I know my kids will love it. It certainly looks like you all had a great time!

Hi Michele,

It's been eons since I went to the circus. Looks like you all had a wonderful time. Fantastic pictures! Thank you for sharing them. And thank you for visiting my blog. Hope you visit again.

Oh, and your little Harley is adorable!

Sounded, and looked, like a great time was had by all! Your pics were great! Loved the one of little Harley! He's quite the sport, isn't he? Sooooo cute!!!!

I'm a little behind in my blog reading as we have another very sick 14-year old cat to tend to. (my daughter's male cat). Spent 7 hours yesterday at the specialists place with him 25 miles from here, where he is having surgery today. Doesn't look good. Waiting for the surgeon to call me this morning with the plan for today. We are torn up about it....again! Going back this afternoon to visit him and meet with the surgeon. He needs all the prayers he can get right now. Thanks! I want to do a post on him today sometime....he's been a wonderful pet for my daughter...he was another one of my rescues.
