Oh Lord! It’s been forever since I’ve posted, but I’ve had a good reason: I’ve been ill with the plague. While in and out of my feverish delusions I had only one thought: “MUST BLOG!” Okay, fine. I really didn’t think about it at all. What I did think was, “how many doses of NyQuil I can take without slipping into a coma?” But that’s beside the point. The point is: I went to the circus! Here’s the story:
Last week Thursday (before the onset of my personal plague) a big group of Disney friends and I headed down to the new Amway Center to catch Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus.
I was really excited because it has been years since I’ve been to the circus, and I really wanted to see some elephants. There were protesters outside while we waited to get in, which made me feel bad.
But then I got over it, because there were elephants! Standing on tiny stools and walking trunk-to-tail!
There were some really cool animal acts, including a Spanish-speaking tiger, and gorgeous horses. My favorite part, though, had to be the acrobats. There was a thrilling high wire act that had me on the edge of my seat. There was also the Fernandez Brothers, a pair from Mexico who perform on giant swinging pendulums. It was really exciting. Mostly because they kept messing up and we all thought they were gonna die:
Yeah, it was a mess. Still fun, though. I’m glad I went, and I think I’d take my kids if I had any!
Have a good week everyone! xoxo
