ZING ZANG ZOOM - The Greatest Show On Earth

Zing Zang Zoom......We had the opportunity to take all four of our children to the Circus last week. They loved it so much they are still talking about it! When we first arrived at the Honda Center in Anaheim, CA the elephants were outside and we were able to get an up close and personal view of them. They were just given some hay, so it was interesting to watch them eat, and some even play with the hay! The kids would laugh as the elephants would pick up the hay with their trunks and throw it all over their backs! Our youngest daughter said "just like we play in the leaves mommy, they are playing too"

I was actually a bit nervous to take our youngest daughter who is 4 1/2. She is so cute, she gets so excited about things....but that's only because she really does not know what is going to happen and once she in actually in the moment she gets a little scared. We walked into the arena the the kids were just in awe! It was so big! An hour before the show all ticket holders are welcome onto the arena floor to mingle with the clowns, watch a bit of the show up close, and even try on some of the Circus outfits! I could not get my daughter to go down with us, but as you can see the other three had a blast and don't they look wonderful - ready to perform in the Circus!

It was time to take our seats. We pulled out the cotton candy (can't go to the circus and not have cotton candy!) and was ready for the Greatest Show on Earth to begin! Our youngest daughter grabbed my hand and squeezed tightly not knowing what to expect. The ringmaster came out along with his partner singing! There was lots of clown entertainment which kept not only the kids but the young at heart laughing too! I had forgot how many different animals there was at the circus. We say dancing dogs, tigers, horses, and elephants. The dancing dogs were our favorite - they had them dressed up and actually dancing on two feet!! But...the star of the show was Mr. Gravity - he is what Swiper is to Dora. He is a clown always trying to steal the show while tripping over his own feet!

We had gone to some families house the next day to take the kids swimming. My Uncle was there who we do not get to see much. He had asked the kids about the Circus - and like bees they all swarmed around him and could not stop talking. The smile on his face, he was so happy to see the glow of these children that the Circus still brings to children around the Country!! The Circus is not just entertainment, but it is a time where family can come together, leave their worries behind and laugh. As a family we needed that, it will be a night our entire family will never forget!

Come experience the all-new Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey
playing the Greater Los Angeles area with your family!
