Guess What Came to Town?

The Circus!!! Well we loaded the van and took our kids to the circus along with Uncle Jason, Aunt Katie, and Ella. They were sooooo excited, I wish I had their zest for life and got excited about little things like the circus. Lily has talked about nothing but the circus today, she has been counting down the minutes and it was not a disappointment for her. We took our kids to the circus that came to Owasso last year and like Uncle Jason said, "Once you've seen one circus you've seen them all". So as you can guess Josh and Jason were not impressed, but we all enjoyed watching our kids have a good time. They really were so pumped! I know I went a little over board with the picture post, but I couldn't decide on which ones I wanted to share. I hope you enjoy them, and you should all go to the circus!

On the way to the circus, the excitment begins!

We're here and still very excited!
Before the show started we could walk around and take camel, elephant, and or pony rides. Every year Lily says she is riding a camel and every year she looks like this when she gets close to one. :)
Lily and Ella got their faces painted, Coop wouldn't do it.
Here are the girls showing off their butterflies
Cooper did brave the ponies for a ride this year, he loved it and didn't want to get off. Ella also rode one and Lily would rather eat dirt!
They had a petting area with pigs, goats, and sheep. These animals were extremely friendly, they would rush up to the gate and stick their heads out. This intimated Cooper, but he still got close with his Daddy's help.
Lily is at a safe distance from the animals with Uncle Jason and Ella
Popcorn just might have been Cooper's favorite part of the entire night!
Lily and her Aunt Katie....AWWWW!
And finally, I thought it would be fun to post a picture of me and my sweetheart of a sister. We are usually the ones behind the camera! :)

I love the picture of Lily and her Aunt Katie, and the last one of you and Katie. I also agree with everyone's love of seeing Lily's excitement in the first picture. She's so cute!

I know for us it's "once you've seen one..." but man, think of the memories your kids will have of you all taking them to the circus every year. I go just to watch them and the looks on their faces....priceless! (ok, I still like the clowns and trapeze ;o)

How cute! It's so cool how they all have their own little personalities!
