Today is activity day for DD. She is going to the circus with her daycare group. She was so excited this morning she actually behaved herself and didn't give me a hard time about having to brush her hair. After all, she had to look fantastic for the circus show. Kids...make you laugh or make you want to cry.

I remember going to the circus as a child. Breifly however, I was quite young. I remember my grandfather being there, my parents and of course my older brother who made me so jealous when he got to ride the elephant because he was older.

Now that I think of it, years later I rode an elephant at parc safari and honestly it wasn't all that.

Years ago I worked for a fundraising company and one of our campaigns was the Shriners circus. We did quite a good job selling those tickets so our boss passed a few to some of the employees for a job well done. Since it had been well over a decade since I had went, my friends and I attended the show.

They had no elephants because apparently one was sick so they quarrentined them all, the black panther swatted at the tamer and had to be taken out of the ring. I am all for animal rights so the useage of animals in the circus for our entertainment does make me clench teeth but the show itself was pretty amazing.

The jugglers, clowns, acrobatics and those that use silk sashes and spin around in an artistic way. They made the show.

My daughter however is young and wanted to see the elephants today. I will hear all about her amazing day tonight.

Meanwhile mommy has to mad clean and try to organize this house because grandma and the gang are coming for a visit!

I'm excited it's been a year since I've seen some of my family excluding my mom & stepdad :-)
