It Really Is!!!

Last week the kiddies and I packed up our big black van and headed downtown to see the Greatest Show On Earth. I think half the town and all the local schools also joined us for the show. Traffic was crazy and I paid a small fortune to have front parking. 1 huge van+ 5 kids and 1 mommy= parking nightmare, so I happily handed over the money and walked right in!
My fears were calmed and my kids easily fell in line. Everyone had a partner and everyone stayed close.

We easily found our seats and sat back and enjoyed the show. I don't think our eyes could have gotten any wider. The show was truly spectacular. Every last child was amazed at the stunts, the pretty costumes and of coarse the elephants.

During intermission we all stopped for bathroom breaks (where we bumped into friends=) and headed back to our seats. On our way, I was able to meet one of my readers who recognized me from my blog. Her name is Melissa. I wish I could have gotten a picture with her but my camera died. I was impressed she liked my blog enough to remember who I was and I enjoyed meeting her husband and her adorable baby!

The circus ended just in time for lunch and we headed home. My kids are already counting down the days till next year, when the Greatest Show On Earth comes back to town!


  1. Hi Amy, it was nice to meet you on Friday - and your 5 beautiful children. :) We were coming down the stairs and I saw you and told my husband - "hey I read that girl's blog!" - how funny. The circus certainly was "The Greatest Show on Earth!" We are looking forward to next year also. Wasn't this weekend just beautiful? I believe God knew we all needed a little break from the freezing weather! :) Email me sometime - hope to talk to you soon!


  2. I love the circus. This reminds me of my childhood. When I was growing up there was an amusement park near my home town called "Circus World." I have many fond memories of going to "Circus World."

    Glad you had a good time!

  3. We love the circus! I think this is the first year we haven't made it sine Seth was born. Glad you all had a great time!

  4. Hi Amy! Where do you live. I want to go to the circus, I mean take my kids to the circus. That sounded like fun.
