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:
These guys were totally impressive.. the did a backward summersault on that high wire:
Yea.. enough said:
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 eating time for the elephants.. and check out how the baby was standing while eating.. seriously too cute:
Sammy (on the right) loved checking out the tigers even if they were sleeping:
The cook tent:
Then the clowns put on a little show for everyone:
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!)
