The Circus Had Dragons!

Last night my grandsons and their dad and mom went to the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus . . . and it is not understating things to say they had an absolutely incredible time!  I received a phone call from Josiah as they were on their way home and he told me the circus had dragons!!!! Not "real" dragons, of course, but dragons which were the size of real dragons . . . and one even breathed fire!!!!! He was definitely impressed!

 Josiah told me he saw real elephants, llamas and tigers - which he thought was really cool; but the things he and his brother Caleb loved the most . . . other than the dragons . . . were the motorcycles and dogs! He told me all about how the motorcycles drove on the walls of a big, round cage; which for a five year old boy could not possibly be anything other than totally, completely cool! And since both boys, but especially Caleb, love dogs, the dog tricks were also something they especially enjoyed!

Josiah said the clowns were really funny and he laughed and laughed at them! He said the circus is definitely something children will love and want to go see; Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus got a big thumbs up from this five year old! (Since yesterday was actually the day of his birthday, going to the circus with his family was a great way to celebrate for sure!)

Josiah's mom, Jackie, told me the circus did a great job of presenting traditional circus acts with an up-dated and fresh new look! She said the show was presented extremely well, the boys loved it and so did she!

I'm so glad my family was able to see and enjoy the circus . . . I'm sure I'll be hearing a lot more about it tonight when Josiah and Caleb come over to spend the night, but for now I want to say, if you have the opportunity to see the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus when they come to your town, definitely go see it! You - and your grandchildren - will be amazed, delighted and in awe - after all, it is, without a doubt, "the Greatest Show on Earth!"
