We had a wonderful time last night at a circus in town. It was nothing fancy, but in our "oh so busy" life, it was a night away from our constant stresses to just be with the girls. They had so much fun. Sarah would watch the acts with such intensity, and then she would tap me on the shoulder to let me know that if I tried that I would probably kill myself.
Abby got chosen out of all the kids in the crowd to hold an alligator. It was too precious. He asked for the bravest kid in the crowd. Abby was standing as tall as she could with her hand raised as high as it would reach. The ringmaster was looking in our directions and said, "That young lady right there." Abby pointed at herself as if to say, "You mean me?" The ringmaster was like, "Yeah you, in the cute little dress, with the nice little polo shirt, and cute curls." She had so much fun. She obviously has no stage fright whatsoever.
Of course, the kids got free tickets at school, and they so wanted to go, but they just figured we wouldn't. Dan really surprised them, and we all had an awesome evening out.
