The Greatest Show on Earth!

We were invited to the Ringling Bros. circus today, Thursday. We were given box seats, free parking pass; VIP status! Nice for us, and thanks to Catherine!

Chase, Zak, Kylie, Griffin and I went. Quinn is at Scout camp having a GREAT time, I am sure.

It was held in the Staples Center:

Some of the retired Laker's Jerseys:

On of the first things the Ringling Bros. did to start the circus was to have us all STAND while the Star Spangled Banner was sung. An elephant walked around the ring in honor of our flag.

The circus in full swing!

A daring tight rope act!

It was a fun and GREAT adventure!

Glad we got to go!

The circus sounds soo fun. Glad you got to go!!! I especially liked when the pachyderm walked around while the audience sang "The Star-Spangled Banner."
