After school on Thursday I picked Zoey up from school and we went to a neighboring town and checked out the circus.

We both enjoyed it and had so much fun...I still remember how excited I was at the thought of getting to go to the circus when I was a little girl only to have gotten the chickenpox the week they were in town so instead of getting to see real live elephants and tigers, I had to stay at home in bed with my good ol' stuffed animals.

Thankfully nobody got the chickenpox this time around. And, we did get to see real live elephants and tigers.

It just so happened too that we bumped into friends there...which is always an added bonus, especially when they have cotton candy (and their name is Ruby). =)

Zoey's favorite part of the circus were the girls that twirled and danced on the ropes (of course!) and my favorite part was the daredevil motorcycle guy who rode his bike on a wire complete with girls hanging below him. Pretty intense.

The motorcycle actually flipped upside down at one point so the girls were above the wire and he was hanging below...no picture of that because I was so shocked that my camera dropped to my lap as I thought it was an accident and not really a part of the show!

Then afterwords we made a stop for a late dinner, just us girls out on the town...

Can you tell that sugar in it's purest of forms was prefacing this dinner? I think so.

Lots of fun little bits throughout the evening, it was hard to get good pictures of it all just because the lighting kept on changing but I did my best and most of all, just enjoyed it right along with Zoey...so glad that we made the trip (even if we did get home after her bedtime and on a school night). You've got to live a little right?
