Last Sunday we went to Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus.
An hour before the show they open up the back area so you can see a few of the animals close up.
Sam was a little nervous, as you can see.
Daddy got a lot of food to eat before the show started.
A rare photo of me...since I'm usually the one behind the camera.
We had great seats. The show was VERY loud and Sam wanted to leave almost right away, but I covered his ears and we made it through. After the first hour there was an intermission and he felt better about the noise and said he was having a great time.
Because of the lighting and my basic camera, this is the way most of my pictures turned out.....
.....so here is what we saw thanks to the program we bought.....
Sam liked seeing the animal acts the most. There were camels, horses and dogs.
I loved the three motorcycles that rode around inside a sphere.
The balancing acts were great too.
The strong man was very impressive. He even had a jeep roll over him.
The arial acts were amazing and the guys were very buff.
This guy kept showing up and annoying the ring leader.
Sam's favorite part was the elephants. Did you know they can eat up to 250 pounds of food a day. Wow! All in all, it was a great evening!
