The Greatest Show on Earth












When Harris was 5, I took him to the Barnum and Bailey Circus and he loved it.  I have wanted to take the other two boys for a couple years now, but the timing just never seemed to work out.  Finally this year everything lined up and we were able to attend.  Winston thought it was fantastic!  He loved all the animals.  Roman the jury is still out.  When it was over he said, " Yeah! Now can I go home?:"  However later when his father asked him if he liked the circus he said yes.   My great grandparents met while working for Barnum and Bailey.    Have you ever been to the circus?  What is your favorite part: the clown, the animals, or the acrobats.  I love the acrobats!

How fun! My kids would love the circus, but I can't even remember the last time it came this way. Looks like they enjoyed it!
Wonderful experience. I love the flying bird puppets.

I loved the circus when I was a child. In those days I don't think we ever considered how the animals were treated. I am older and wiser now, and don't really approve of animals being made to perform. I do appreciate though that there are good and bad circuses and the good ones hopefully respect their animals.

There are circuses now that don't use animals at all, but I'm not sure how popular they are because of this.

Seems like a magic time! If the animals are well kept and seem happy, I do enjoy a circus. I´ve seen the opposite and that was not fun at all.

What a fantastic experience for the boys! I don't ever recall the circus coming to town here (the real deal, not Cirque du Soleil).
Love these pictures! I have never been to the circus... Look like really fun!
