We are lucky that there is a large facility only 30 minutes away from our house, and there are concerts, shows, etc. that are there ALL THE TIME. By no means do we go to everything that would interest us, but we do get to attend a good many shows. Around this time last year we saw Winter Jam and Kate went to her very first concert.
Earlier this week I realized that the circus was in town, so I stopped by on my lunch break to purchase tickets. So today, we went to the circus!
The circus comes to town every year, but we've never gone. Each year I've justified not going by thinking that Kate was too young to really enjoy it. And I'm glad we waited! This was her first experience with the circus and it did not disappoint!
When everything was over, Kate cried because she did not want to leave. That is how much fun she had! She kept saying "but I wanna do it AGAIN!"
Two happy kids. No meltdowns (except for the disappointment of it being over). I call that a successful trip!
