The group of martial arts masters from the Far East fascinated my Little Man, and with good reason. They were able to bend steel with their chests, snap hard boards swung at their heads, and balance on the tip of a spear – on their chests. Here, this man jumped through a blazing hoop of knives – with a black hood over his head.
Princess, the tiger on the left, was having a rather grumpy day, making this show quite tense. I’m glad I wasn’t the one in the ring with her! – but it did make for an exciting show. I’m not so sure that My Little Man is ready to take up lion taming, however …
nothing prepared me to my Big Helper’s new fascination with elephants. She has added working at the Ringling Bros.’ Elephant Conservation Center in Florida as a new career possibility for her future. I wonder where I can find an elephant for her to ride?
All in all, we loved our trip to the circus and were nowhere ready for the show to end. The kids are already talking about Ringling Bros.‘ trip to the Triangle next year. Maybe we’ll be able to go again!
Have you ever taken your kids to the circus? What did they think? Do you know where to ride an elephant?
