Remember the circus you went to as a kid? The one where it was more about people with AMAZING talents? That's what this experience was for me. This circus blew The Ringling Bros. Circus out of the water. The mister and I are NOT fans of the Ringling Bros. and after the one and only show we ever took the girls to see, we swore we'd NEVER EVER go back. Thus far, we have stuck to our promise. Doug had heard really good things about The Big Apple Circus so he surprised us with tickets. What I learned about this circus is they are not-for-profit and do amazing work for various children's hospitals and other organizations. Made me feel better about the ridiculous amount of money we dropped on hot dogs, popcorn, cotton candy, m&ms, juice, bottled water and coke. Jeez....we are pigs. Seriously, if you ever get the opportunity to check out this circus, do so. You won't be disappointed!
