Under the Big Top


Charles and I, along with our good friend George, took Riley to the Shriner’s Circus this past weekend. She had a blast–it was her first time doing anything like this and she got to ride her very first carnival rides ever. She approached the rides with no fear and I was really amazed at how eager she was to tackle anything!

The circus was not bad, but she got a little board about halfway through the show. Next year, we plan to take her to the “real” circus–Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey’s!! Now that really is “The Greatest Show on Earth” and I don’t think she’ll be disappointed.
