Zing Zang Zoom

It's taken me awhile to get to this post.  I wasn't going to post, simply because most of my pictures didn't come out.  I don't like doing too many picture-less posts.  But I finally looked at the pictures and decided to tell the story of Hannah's first trip to the circus.  We surprised her.  It worked out great, since it was a last minute decision to go!  Some of our friends were going on this particular Saturday and they called us late Saturday morning to see if we wanted to join them.  We tried getting seats by them, but it didn't pan out that way.  We told Hannah we had a surprise that we were taking her too, but left it at that for awhile.  On the way there we were giving her hints, listing the things she would see.  She had no idea though!  We got there early enough for the pre-show.  David was very excited.  He kept talking about this giant program book that he used to get.  

The Pre Show

 This was Hannah's expression through out the show.  She was amazed, and
paying no attention to anything other than the show.  

 Sandy the elephant.

Here you can see David smiling.  

 Most of my shots of the show came out blurry because of the low light 
and how far away we were.  

Hard to see, but this is the motorcycle tight rope act.  I really liked this.  

A blurry shot of Hannah, totally ignoring me!

At the end of the day we left with one giant program, an elephant cup, a clown hat, a light up tiara, and lots of smiles.  Hannah said her favorite part of the show was "all of it." However, she got extra excited over the motorcycle in the cage act.  That night for bed she wanted to read her circus program for her bed time story.  It was expensive, but I wouldn't take back a second of it.  She had so much fun, and she still lights up when she talks about it.
