The Circus is in Town!

The Cole Bros. Circus is back!  We went last year and had a great time!  When I heard the advertisements for the circus on the radio I knew we had to go again.  Steph and I piled the four kids into our cars and headed out to the 4:30 PM show yesterday.

I expected the show to be the same as last time but was surprised to find that some of the acts were new.  Like the sumo wrestling clowns (so sad the photo did not come out) and the spotted horse who could do simple math.

Of course some of our favorites were still in the show.  We loved seeing the guy balancing on the huge spinning ring apparatus again.  He almost fell a couple of times…

The tight rope act was right above our seats.  They did this crazy 7-person pyramid that was pretty nuts.  The person on top, doing the head stand, was 10-years-old.

The acrobat chicks who did stunts using only lengths of fabric were nice to see again.

Cousin B tried his hand at his own acrobatic show during the intermission…

I’m pretty sure that Wildman’s favorite part was the cotton candy.

And Cutie Pie?  He devoured half a box of popcorn on his own.
