Under the Big Top

 

Cole Bros. Circus

Alternative title: Why Sammy Now Wants to be a Human Cannon Ball!

The circus was in town and we got tickets to the show the night before his birthday!  We surprised Sammy on the way:

Sammy loves all thing animals but got really into the different acts.  This was his second time at the circus but the first one in a tent! It was also a different circus company and I loved the different acts! 

All ready with snow cones and popcorn:

The tiger tamer was amazing:

Watching the doggies perform was one of Sammy’s favorites:

The youngest performing elephant was adorable! His act was basically like his play time and was super cool to see:

Elephants are so majestic!  You could also get a ride on their backs before the circus started.  Sammy was not all about that though!

But the hands down favorite act was the guy getting shot out of a cannon!  Sammy now wants to do this when he grows up!

The next day we had the privilege of going on a behind the scenes tour of the circus with some homeschool friends! Picture perfect day:

The tour was led by two clowns (literally) they were great and very informative:

It was such a fun experience and I am so glad we took the opportunity to go see the circus!

Thanks Cole Bros. Circus for the behind the scenes tour!! (This was not a sponsored post I just loved the experience and wanted to share it!)
