Until today, I had only been to the Ringling Brothers Circus once, yet the memories were still magical.

Tonight, I was able to share those memories with our children, and give them that same gift. The gift of wonder and awe.  I had forgotten just how many talents, tricks and treasures are packed into one two hour show.

It’s a cacophony for the senses.

Lights, music, singing, dancing, tricks, humor, awe, wonder, surprise, danger and more…

all rolled into one experience.

For so much of the evening, I just kept watching the faces of our children. The reactions changed from minute to minute. That, in and of itself, was magic for this momma.

Thank you, Ringling Brothers, Barnum and Bailey Circus for sharing with us for nearly 150 years, why you are truly the Greatest Show on Earth. Now my children know why as well.

When was the last time you went to the circus?

What’s your favorite thing to see?

I highly recommend you put that on your “to do” list for this next year.
