A Day at The Big Apple Circus

This past weekend, courtesy of Mommy's Links, I was able to take my two youngest children to The Big Apple Circus at Cunningham Park.

We started our Sunday morning, as we do every breakfast with my family. The kids enjoyed pancakes and cherry lemonade at a local restaurant, B.A.D. Burger, where the food is super yummy! Once finished with breakfast we waited for the kids grandma who would be joining us at the circus. Upon her arrival, we began our adventure to get our "Dance On" with Grandma the Clown. The weather was not ideal and the parking situation was a drab! But we would not let that deter us from experiencing the fun under the big top.

This is what we saw walking into the big top:
Darkness filled the tent but the lights of the props were amazing! Did I forget to mention our seats?! We were 5 rows back from ringside...awesome seats! The artists who performed were not to shabby either. There were gumby-like acrobats whose bodies twisted in ways you wouldn't think even possible. A high flying rope artists, and DOGS! Yep, doggies! They were super cute and amazing. The kids eyes would light up everytime a new act came out...why...because the lighting and music made for an awesome entrance for each act!

And of course, the best part of the show, in my opinion and that of my kids, GRANDMA!!!
Grandma the Clown, was super funny and made the whole show!
After the show was over, we went out and purchased our souvenirs...they chose light up swords...figures! Boys! Lol. Asking them if they liked the show, they cheered loudly and said "YEAH!".
All in all, the circus was fun and we would like to give a special thanks to Mommy's Links and The Big Apple Circus for allowing us to be a part of this great event!
