Ringling Rocks the ATL!

The day finally came for us to go see the Circus, all of our first times attending.  I must say it exceeded my expectations!  I loved the show, even Princess was well behaved and enjoyed it! 

"Ladies and Gentleman, Children of All Ages"

Ringling Bros and Barnum & Baily opened with a spectacular parade and kept me curious as to what was going to happen next! 

(Princess Clapping)

My initial thoughts:
"Elephants are HUGE"
"Oh no they're not going to have 7 in there...REALLY 7?"
"WOW --Did you see that!"
"Baby, Look at the Tigers, Rarrr"
"I bet that's insanely hard to do"
"How many superheros are in there?

We really loved the show, "The Greatest Show on Earth" is a excellent name for it!  It really had that wow factor.  My favorite part...hmmm I have to say the motorbikes....THAT WAS AMAZING! 
Out came a big hollow ball of metal and 7 bikes, now what could they possibly be doing?  I was surprised to see that 4 bikes even fit into the ball, but then to see them going around so fast was incredible.  I was a bit of a worry wart thinking how can they possibly do that....Then 3 more bikes joined making 7 bikes...(not just any old bikes, motorbikes/dirt bikes!  That was so cool to see! 

I also loved watching the trapeze act.  While it had me on the edge of my seat, it also had me stunned and a bit worried for them!  Princess loved the elephants and the ponys.   She did such a good job, being 18 months it's definitely hard to sit still but she sat with me for most of it and then when she finally wanted down she stood and watched the show.  There are plenty of toys, and goodies for the kids, although they are way over priced we had to get the cute elephant cup snowball.  I totally would recommend going to see The Greatest Show On Earth, but definitely eat before you go!
