Right as we first walked in there was a little ring with pony rides, and just outside of it a bunch of goats were walking around that we could feed. Rylie LOVED feeding the goats. To my surprise, Bryce got in on it too and wasn't afraid of them like I thought he would be.
Once her cup of goat food was gone, Rylie looked around for something else fun to do and saw that she could ride an elephant! So we bought her a ticket and off she went. She has no fear. She climbed right up on that elephant like nothing!
Once Rylie dismounted from the elephant, we decided to take our seats since the show was about to start.
My mom was with us too and took this family picture. We don't have many.
The kids really enjoyed the circus and paid attention better than I thought they would. I knew Rylie would watch it, but I didn't think Bryce would sit still for very long. He sat through the whole thing, though, and enjoyed it every bit as much as Rylie did. Every time music would play he would start dancing. I missed half of the acts because I was too busy watching him do his "moves".
Of course part of the fun of going to the circus is eating a bunch of junk food, which we did. Bryce's favorite was the cotton candy! He was a sticky mess afterwards!
During intermission the kids got to pet a miniature horse, got some more snacks, and Rylie got another elephant ride! We actually put Bryce and Brian on it too, but since Bryce wouldn't hold on to the little chains, they made him get off. I thought it was kind of silly at first, but they have their rules and it is for our safety.
All in all, it was a fun evening for the kids. You'll notice that I didn't talk much about the circus itself, because that really needs an entire post dedicated to it. I just wanted to show some cute pictures of the kids and talk about the fun they had. Stop back by next week to hear what I thought about the circus, and why we probably won't go back again.
