So since Hill hasn't been to the big circus yet, I figured he wouldn't know the difference because this one would have dogs instead of lions and a kangaroo instead of elephants. I have to admit I was a little nervous. I didn't know what to expect, but Chip and I agree it was way better than we expected. It was entertaining enough that we will probably take Hill again next year. He loved it.
|Waiting for the circus to start|
|The circus ring|
|Hill ready for the show to start!|
They let the kids sit at the edge of the ring to watch
|The Amazing Victor|
(it was pretty amazing because they didn't have mats
underneath if he fell)
|Watching The Amazing Victor|
|Reina and her monkey|
(For those of you non spanish speakers, Reina means Queen)
I guess she was the queen of the monkey?
|Whoa, Monkey he got close to us!|
|The monkey climbing on the curtain|
|Mom, did you see that?|
|The Amazing ?? was balancing on this board on a rolling thing|
(All the performers are "The Amazing" something)
|In a trans|
Hill loved him. When he juggled the balls...
What did Hill say? Baahhhh!!
|My sweet boys|
|Balancing a sword with breakables on the end by the|
tip of a dagger in his mouth.
I think this guy was Chip's favorite. He said he'd be a great
guy to have at parties to do tricks.
|The Clown, who was also|
"The Amazing Victor"
|Reina and her Amazing Dogs|
Of course Hill liked the dogs too
|The Amazing 'I couldn't pronounce her name'|
She spun on the rope and did tricks.
Ok, folks. This is where it gets serious. They brought out this kangaroo. His name was Jack. Now, I don't guess I've ever seen a kangaroo up close, but they are weird. I'm an animal lover but a kangaroo is just an awkward animal. I think their shoulders goob me out because it's like a backwards shoulder blade arms or something. I know that makes zero sense, but I have no idea how to explain it. I will say I haven't laughed that hard in a long time and neither had Chip. I think Hill was just as perplexed as I was. They brought Jack out to fight with the clown in a boxing ring. Strange. Yes. Entertaining. Yes. I could probably watch it all day in one of those train wreck can't look away type of ways.
I feel sorry for the kangaroo, where does he sleep? Do they just play fight with him all the time or can he watch tv with them in their hotel room? Where does he go to the bathroom? Does he have friends other than the monkey or dogs? I'm just so confused about this kangaroo. He's so strange. Is that why he's a part of the circus? Do all kangaroos look that strange? I have so many questions about him and his life. I guess I'll never know.
We had such a Big Time at the Big Top that I don't think Hill made it out of the parking lot before he was out like a light. What a great family night! Now see, there can be fun entertaining things to do in The Land of Koz.
