Welcome to the Big Top!


Last Saturday, Bridget and I met our dear friends Jill and Alexandra in Frisco to see the Kelly Miller Circus. It was a blast! Through the miracle of blogging and the coincidental circumstances that Jill works at the same MS as Jonathan (she used to work at school with me!), we thankfully manage to stay in touch…our families are both so busy that there’s precious little time to spend together!

Back to the fun! What a great day to see a circus!


The Kelly Miller Circus is a traveling Big Top complete with trapeze artists, clowns:


Jugglers, dancers, and a full menagerie:Circus4IMG_1645IMG_1643IMG_1637

My little noodle doodle was perfectly content to sit on my lap, especially since she’s often afraid of PA systems (she gets freaked out at our neighborhood taco restaurant when they call to-go orders over the PA! Poor girl!). The welcome scared her a little and kept her clinging tightly to Mommy, but as soon as all the “oohs” and “ahhs” and clapping began, she wanted to make sure she showed her appreciation as well. Such a good audience member!


It was so fun sitting with Jill and Alexandra! It’s always awesome to see all the things Alexandra can do, since she’s nearly exactly one year older than B. Isn’t it amazing to see how much they grow in one year?!


Check out our matching circus ladies!:


We didn’t have any idea how long the show would go, so when they announced a 20 minute intermission after an hour of performance, Jill and I took that perfect opportunity to sneak out and see a little bit of the outdoor activities before heading home:

Up on our tippy-toes to sneak a peak at those ponies:


We love these beautiful girls!!!


Before we hopped in the car to go home, I snapped a few pics of my sweet one strolling through this lovely breezeway. Isn’t she lovely?!

Can’t get enough of that sweet face. Such a delightful day of memory making!
