The Greatest Show On Earth!

Last night we headed downtown to Phillip's watch the circus...Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey....The Greatest Show On Earth. And boy was it great!!!

First we ate dinner in the CNN Center.

Madi got a picture with a Wolf Blitzer stand.

Back in 2003 we all watched the war news from Warrior One in Iraq...the CNN Humvee.

The circus was so magical. We saw the acrobats

...the tight rope


and the elephants. It really was a fun magical night!
Now today? Steve thought it would be fun to go back over to Athens, Georgia to watch another basketball game. Well Ben didn't and he wanted to stay home to play with friends. So I am at home and Ben's twin friends Blaine and Bailey are here. Madi and Steven?...are in Athens watching the University of Georgia vs. Alabama play basketball AND a girls softball doubleheader...Georgia vs Virginia Tech. Steve has the perfect child...a little sports buddy.

That is a great way to go out with a bang for the winter holiday week from school! My Mom took Bryce and I to the Ringling show when they came through St Louis before she died. Wonderful memories! You're right~ magical! The kiddos are getting so big. Bryce has long-ish hair like Ben, too. He's been growing it out for quite a few months now. I'm trying hard to bite my tongue and let him do his thing! Love ya! xo

Looks like so much fun. I really need to take my kids to the circus one of these times. It seems like that's one of those things kids never forget, kinda like the first trip to Disney Land.
