Last Tuesday evening, we took the girls to the circus. Jeff’s mom helped me get them there, and Jeff met us there after he got off work. (It was Jeff and his mom’s first time to the circus, too!) It was hot inside the big top, but so worth it to see Maggie having such a good time. (Okay, we adults may have been a bit enthralled as well.)
We have taught Maggie about animals since she was really small, so she can recognize them, and make all the noises for tons of animals, even dolphins and giraffes!
When she was watching the ponies dance, she kept neighing non-stop in excitement. And when we watched the flying trapeze (my personal favorite), she was trying to wriggle off my lap, and was pointing to the trapeze saying, “swing, swing!” (Uh, NO – you can’t swing on that!)
There was a place outside where you could feed the animals and ride the elephants. Maggie pushed on the gate with all her might, trying to get to the elephant. And she giggled when the animals ate out of her hands.
I am so glad we decided to take them; it was so much fun; we will definitely do it again.
