For those of you Circus-hating, PETA-loving folks - let me save you some time. Stop reading now, because guess what? This family loves the circus! I had not been to the circus since around 1987. So this year I decided the girls were old enough to appreciate such a grand show, and I was right! I think Olivia and I had the most fun. I actually felt like a kid again. Juliana loved parts of it, then she'd get a little overwhelmed with all the lights and action and would literally "check out" for a little 15 minute power nap. She would wake up ready for another circus chunk and then repeat the cycle. Here are just a few of my favorite shots from that day.
