Last Friday, I hinted that we were going to take the kids somewhere for a surprise on Friday night. Our friends generously and graciously invited us to attend Barnum and Bailey's circus in Cincinnati at US Bank Arena. We had never done this as a family, and the entire trip was paid for (minus gas money). What a blessing!!! We had our own box to sit in with our friends, our own food and drinks (even a fridge), and our own bathroom. I don't know if I could ever attend the circus any differently in the future. That was pretty awesome. We didn't tell the kids where we were going, but as soon as we parked and walked inside, Kurtis handed out the tickets. Kate read the word, "circus" right away and was astonished. Her comment that followed still cracks me up. She said, "This is the first circus I have been to in all my 5 years." The kids all LOVED it. I didn't get many pictures because we arrived late and I was too caught up in all the action. Here is a picture of K-lady with her dear friend after the show was done.
