We ran away and joined the circus...

..well for the evening anyway ;)!!! We went with Mom, Dad, Coy, Krystal, Jaym and Jax to the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus on Thursday evening and we had such a fantastic time! I think we had the most perfect seats in the whole stadium!!! The kids were all so cute. Lynzi didn't get a nap that day because she was so excited (kind of like that Disney commercial..."I'm too excited to sleep!!!") We thought for sure she'd conk out on the way there...but again, too excited! So by the time we got there, her eyes were so heavy...but as soon as you walk in it is sensory overload and there was so much to take in that your eyes barely even blink :)!!! We were even in the spotlight for a minute! Bello is the star clown of the show (the show this year is called "Bellobration") and during one of the acts he came up into the audience with the spotlight following him. He came right up our aisle and I was sitting on the end I called Lynzi over to sit in my lap and got Jaym as close as we could in the short time we realized he was heading our way. So we got to shake his hand and he said "hi!" Then on his way back down...he grabbed Lynzi's hand again and pointed to her and said, "Hey, Shirley Temple!!!" Lynzi was so excited...she was the star of the show for a split second :)! It was so wonderful and I'm glad we got to go! I got ALOT of pictures...and at the very end there is a video of Lynzi's crazy self during the circus!!! :)
(The pics are kind of on them if you want to see them bigger.)

I've been reading all your posts (just haven't had time to comment lately!) I LOOOOVE all these pics! Looks like yall had a blast at the circus! I loved watching the video of Asher eating too! ;) He does much better than Levi! He hates to eat for some reason?! I can't get him to take food off the spoon. Every once in a while he gobbles it up, but most of the time I have to force him to open his mouth for the spoon. Anyway, the kiddos are precious and I'm so happy you've joined the blogging world! It's so fun to keep up with everyone! ;)

Oh and we REALLY wanted to be at Justin's cd release, but we had a photography job in Galveston so we couldn't make it! :(
