Circus-bound

be-a-clown-2.jpg    When was the last time you went to the circus?

We took our then-4-year-old daughter Cera when Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey stopped in Raleigh last year, and my husband and I may have had as much fun as she did. From the elephants and tigers to the aerialists and motorcycle daredevils, the three of us were completely mesmerized. Jerry and I came home a lot lighter in the pockets (thanks to severely overpriced refreshments, including a snow cone served in a keepsake clown cup that makes it look like you’re eating the clown’s brain – so odd – and a light-up dragon sword, which our daughter chose over the light-up tiaras that every other little girl seemed to be wearing), but we were filled with a sense of childhood whimsy that we hadn’t felt in a while. So I guess it was a fair trade.

The circus currently is back at the RBC Center, with shows remaining tonight, Sunday and Monday (you can learn more at http://www.rbccenter.com/events/upcomingevents.asp@event_id=287.html). All four of us are going this year (not sure how it will go with our 2-year-old – don’t know if he can sit still that long) and I’ll post our “review” after we get home tonight.
