Circus Date Night

My husband got free tickets to the circus from work, so we took advantage of that for a fun date night last night. We were pretty much the only ones there not bringing children, but we had no shame in that. We're big kids at heart and had such a good time!  Thomas was pretty much just as excited as the cute little kids behind us.  They were hilarious and were shrieking with excitement over everything.  They yelled things like "The magic is so overwhelming!"

My only concern is how well the animals are treated, especially after watching Water for Elephants.  The circus said they treat them better than what the regulations call for, but I guess you never really know what happens behind the scenes. 




Loved that baby elephant! 












You couldn't pay me enough money to get inside a cage with all those tigers! 

The grand finale was a man being shot out of a canon! Too cool! 

We had a blast at the circus and we ended our night perfectly with a pit stop for Cookout milkshakes on the way home.  I love weekday date nights! 


Love,
Caitlin
