God may have us on a crooked journey, but we are richly blessed!

Make a Wish gave us tickets to the Ringling Brothers, Barnum & Bailey circus. We all had a fabulous time! Before the show we went down to the floor and watched the performers up close:
The girls got tattoos:
They loved being so close to the action:
Meeting the clowns:
The hula hoop girl:
The trained dogs:
An elephant dunking a basketball:
The elephant painting:
His final product was quite abstract:
The girls enjoyed the dance party with the clowns:
I am so glad that the circus has changed its format and now just has one big ring in the center. I always hated trying to watch several different acts simultaneously.
Pyramids of people on horseback:
A motorcycle on a tightrope, with acrobats hanging below:
The big cats:
The cats growled and lunged at the trainer the whole time, barely cooperating:
These women hung from their hair. This is one of the many things we had to tell the girls "you cannot do this at home!"
Martial arts performers:
A trained cat, crawling across a tightrope:
The cat riding a ball across two bars:
This cat actually jumped into that pillow!
The teeter totter flippers are one of my favorite acts.
Some of them wimped out and wore safety wires:
Some landed on chairs instead of their partner's shoulders:
The elephants in a row:
We had a great time at the circus!
