you couldn't pay me enough money to get on a motorcycle in a cage with seven others

Friday we went to the circus.  I won four tickets through Piedmont Parent and the kids were really excited about it.  I had already been telling Jules that we weren't going to go again because it was so expensive so then when I won the tickets we were thrilled.

The show started at 7:30 which is kinda late for us but beggars can't be choosers, right?  We headed to dinner in Greensboro after work and got to the coliseum right as the show was getting ready to start.

We had EXCELLENT seats.  We were pretty close to the middle, we were on the fourth row, and had an aisle seat!  You can see how close we were in this picture.  One time the clowns threw giant beach balls into the audience and it came straight toward us.  Lots of fun!

Josh clapped quite a bit of the time we were there.  He wasn't feeling the best and was definitely ready to go before the show was over.  We hated to make Jules leave earlier than she was ready though.  When we finally talked her into going it was about ten o'clock and as we made it to the top of the level we realized that the show was ending anyway so we got to see it all anyway.

Of course my cell phone pictures didn't turn out that great, but pictures of the circus never are really as good as the show anyway.

These performers were directly over the front row on several occasions.  It was a tightrope motorcycle and two very flexible acrobats hanging underneath.  So cool!

This makes our third trip to the circus since Julianna was born so I doubt we'll be going back anytime soon.  That is, unless Piedmont Parent comes through with free tickets again.  [Do you know how much is costs for a ticket to the circus these days?! Twenty-two dollars for a spinning light!]  Nevertheless, we thoroughly enjoyed our trip this year and are so thankful we go to go!
