Tuesday Night Circus

A few weeks ago, L told me that the circus was coming to town this week.  The word "circus" usually brings to mind this:

I was able to slip out of work a bit early this evening, and the girls and I rushed to the early show under the Big Top.  It was not very crowded, and quite enjoyable - clowns, trapeze artists, jugglers, fire eaters, animal acts, expensive peanuts and popcorn - the works!

We ran into our friends there, this being Small Town, America.  Uncle J allowed the girls to ride an elephant during intermission.

Forgot my camera, so it was terrible
cell phone pic or nothing!

The elephants made me think of Water for Elephants, which if you haven't read it yet, consider doing so this summer, it is quite entertaining.

We met up with JP afterwards and ate dinner together at Bob Evans (Tuesday nights kids eat free!)  Then rushed home to wash up, read a chapter of Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator, and tuck the girls into bed just a few minutes late.

All in all, we had a pretty fun Tuesday evening!
