I'm going to tell you alllll about it below, but in case you only have like 30 seconds to read a review, I'll just sum it up here:


This was, BY FAR, the BEST circus show we have EVER seen!!!

We attended the circus last week and were honored to get to do a “meet and greet” with some of the performers beforehand. In the photo above, the STAR of the show is to my right. I don't know if they call him the star of the show, but he totally is. He was in just about every act, and was the life of the party! We hugged him and asked if he liked taller women. ;)

This guy was so adorable!! I just wanted to pinch his cheeks.

The kids absolutely loved meeting the stars of the show! They got their autographs and it was a really great experience.

The meet and greet was over, so we headed downstairs. We got to get up close and personal with the circus performers again, because they let everyone come down onto the main stage and watch them do some really crazy things!

The girls got temporary tattoos, there was a bounce house, and we got to see an elephant paint a picture!!

Once the show started, it was really dark so I didn't get many photos – but there were so many things going on I didn't know which way to point the camera, anyway!

All of the sudden, we look up, and THIS is taking place above our heads! That's a motorcycle on a tight rope, with two girls hanging below. WHAT!

The circus was a blast! Wanna know my favorite part? It's when I see my mom happy, and acting like a kid again, when she is always very quiet about everything! She really got into it and was yelling and clapping, and gasping at the nerve-wracking parts. Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey gave us something priceless this night:

Memories we will cherish forever.

  1. It looks like you all had a lot of fun. This brings back memories of when I saw the Ringling Brothers circus when I was a kid in NY. It also reminds me of the time last year when I got stuck at a railroad crossing for like a half hour because the circus train was passing. That was a loooong ass train.

  2. My kids love the circus. I can’t tell you how long it’s been since we have been to a show. I remember when they used to have the unicorn in their show. I was able to ride around in a cart with other kids and wave at everyone. I was such the cool dork ;)

  3. That looks like so much fun! We have only been to little circuses, nothing like that before. I love your Moms smile, she looks so happy!

  4. I have never been to the circus. I hope to be able to take the kids someday, but I don’t think that Ringling Brothers ever comes out this way. I guess we’ll have to find them!

  5. oh my gosh! I can’t wait until they come by us!!! We love RB Circus AND dragons!!! Now we get the best of both!!! how awesome!

  6. I love the circus. I really want to take our kids soon. Looks like your girls had a great time during the meet and greet.

  7. I have not been to the circus sine I was maybe… 10??? My dad took us a couple times and it’s some of the best memories I have!! I hope they make their way to Vegas! I’m totally down for going!!
    Looks like your mom had quite a fantastic time! :)

  8. I cannot wait to take my kids to see this show!!
