I took my 4 1/2 year old son and 2 year old daughter and they had such a great time!!!  This year celebrates the 141st year for the Ringling Bros. Circus.  They loved the animals and the jumping acrobats with the neon, black light clothes were a huge hit!!  My son also keeps telling me how funny he thought the clowns were when they would dance:)  But when I asked him to take a picture with them, he ran away;) lol

I really encourage going to the Animal Open House before the Circus starts.  You will learn a lot here and get an up close look at the animals and get your program books autographed by the clowns.

Here are some pictures from our night at the circus:

What I loved most about the circus was learning all about how they are helping conserve Elephants on their 200 acre facility in Florida.  They are really helping to conserve the Asian Elephants.

And of course I loved seeing the amazement and awe in my children's eyes.

From the agile acrobats dangling far above the ground to the hysterical clowns, this is a family event that should not be missed!

And if you can swing it, definitely get the VIP Celebrity tickets.  This is where we got to sit and it was AMAZING!  For at least 20 minutes of the first half we were brought up into the ring for an inside seat to view the circus!  The action was all around us.

ARE YOU FULLY CHARGED? This is a unique initiative in which we're encouraging everyone everywhere to check their smoke detector batteries to make sure they're (wait for it) -- Fully Charged. Yes, there's a Facebook page -- -- and I hope you'll help spread the word -- you might also help save a life.
