Last night as part of Bill's 35th birthday week we went to the Ringling Brothers Circus. A friend was buying a pack of tickets at the crazy low price of 11.00 each with no service charge. After missing the monster truck rally, we opted that this would be a fun thing to do as a family. Unfortunately it has been a totally crappy day for the adults, even with it being Bill's birthday so it was nice to get out.
We stopped at Chargrill and picked up dinner on the way over. Ben fell asleep in the car on the way to the opted to drive over to the arena for really close parking since it was windy and cold, eat while he slept and then go in for the pre-show of animals and circus amusements on the main floor. Mom of course in true Hendricks style smuggled in the rest of Ben's dinner and snacks/drinks.
Ben loved the animals best and got a snow cone in a white tiger cup as his carefully selected souvenir. We had great seats to see all the action up close without being too close to smell the animals. After the elephant pooping at the zoo ongoing dialogue all weekend, Ben of course was disappointed when the elephants all came out tail to snout, did a bunch of tricks, and weren't pooping.
As good as it all was, I still can't say it was Disney Stunt Show Man Catching on Fire Good. Even the ladies being shot out of a cannon didn't do it for me. So I have pledged that when the Monster Truck show is back in town on the "Confederate Summer World Tour" I am going to be there!
