The Greatest Show on Earth

Saturday I met my sister and niece Riley in Indy to take our kids to the circus. Matt had to work so me and 5 kids (yes 5, Blake took a friend) traveled to Indy to go to the circus. The kids really seemed to enjoy themselves, even Blake (he will probably not admit it). Mylee had her first taste of cotton candy and LOVED it. However, I have to admit it was really hard for me to buy the cotton candy. Not because the kids were going to be a sticky mess, but because a bag of cotton candy was $12.00! Yes, $12.00! I thought the guy was kidding when he told me the price, but he very seriously repeated the price to me. There was no way I was going to buy a bag for all the kids, so my sister and I each bought one bag and made them share. They didn't seem to mind. Emma and Mylee loved the elephants and Emma thought it was pretty cool that they could do tricks. Gabe was fine as long as the clowns stayed very far from him. For some reason, he is terrified of them. All in all, it was a nice time and the kids really enjoyed themselves.

I love the close-up of Mylee eating cotton candy. It's so adorable! Thanks for posting the new pictures. Can't wait to get together again soon.

$12 cotton candy???? WHAT? I think the most expensive I've ever seen it is $7. Inflation!! It's outrageous. :) Did the kids get $12 worth of enjoyment out of it though?

Hi--I just found your site, and am enjoying it very much! We also have an adopted daughter from China that has one clubbed foot. We had it surgically corrected in May 2007, and it has turned out beautifully! Your Mylee is just beautiful. I have bookmarked your site and will be checking it regularly.
