Sometimes Life is like a Circus!

I have done it again - let more than a month go by without blogging.  Yes......I am a bad blogger.  And I'm not even going to make any promises about doing better in the future.  Because, you guessed it, Sometimes Life is like a Circus!                    
I could list all the things that have kept me so very busy, but I'm sure I'm no busier than all of you.  Besides in my blogging world there will be "No Whining Allowed!"  LOL

Just after the last time I typed a blog entry, Dear Husband and I spent several days in AL, and while we were there took Gavin and Aidan to the circus.   I had not been to the circus in well over 20 years, and WOW!  this was nothing like that experience.  Barnum's Funundrum presented by Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey was quite the experience!                                                                                                                                                                                                    
Both boys were excited to be going on an outing with Gramma and Grampa.  I had been to Gavin's school two days earlier to have lunch with him, and it seemed that a lot of his classmates (at least the children at our table!) had already been to the Circus that week.
So Gavin was excited about it.
As far as Aidan is concerned, I'm not sure he even knew what a Circus was!
We quickly fell under the spell of the exuberant RingMaster and were charmed by the likes of Tiger-Tamers, Motorcyclists, and Acrobats.  
The animal acts were entertaining..................
...............the clowns were funny, and the colors, lights and excitement of the rousing closing number were exhilarating.
Afterwards we took the boys to one of their favorite eateries for a late dinner and talked over the evening.  We shared our favorite parts of the Circus.   We laughed over the antics of the performers.   We ate dessert!  

And, in case you are wondering what my favorite part of the evening was?  It was building memories with our grandsons.


  1. Oh yes...grandsons! They are the greatest. Glad you had such a good time with them. Now next time...and I hope that isn't too far from now....we need to see what quilty things you are working on.

  2. Uh huh, quilty things. That's next. Promise!
