Wordful Wednesday: The Circus

Alternative Title: The Apple Doesn't Fall Far

My husband is a chronically unenthused person, he is even keeled to almost a fault (while this can be frustrating its great whenever there is an emergency or when things get really hectic).  And while my kids are at all times kids and can get wound up, we have discovered that they do follow in their father's hard to impress footsteps.


The Circus

"When we get home can we watch a movie?"
(can't make this stuff up he really said that)


Ok...so this one was a little amazed by the woman up in the air

But when asked he'll tell you his favorite part of the circus...

 was his tattoo.

This is what he looked like when he woke up
(seriously...this kid took a 45minute nap at the freakin' circus!!)

But don't worry
When all is said in done
We did have a great time
And the boys were amazed by some of the tricks
And most of the animals.

And we are off the hook for the next time the Circus comes to town,
As Tommy declared (with no prompting) that while he had fun
and the elephants were cool
He never wants to go to the circus again.


  1. I wil have to take Nate next time to see if he would like it. I am not a huge fan, but we'll have to see about him. :o) Oh and Aaron is of the underimpressed kind as well!

  2. I hate going to the circus. I make Rob do it. LOL Isn't that terrible? I just really hate going - the smells, the loudness, all of it. No thanks.

  3. That is too funny! My boys were the most impressed by the $20 flashlights that they try and get you to buy! We have only been once:)

  4. Well, I'm with him! I'm not a big fan of the circus, either! LOL!

  5. My oldest didn't get into the circus either. We do have cirque du soleil on DVD, and he likes that.


  6. bwahaha! He doesn't want to go ever again? That is pretty funny. :)

    I have not been to the circus since I was a kid.

  7. Ha! Guess that's just NOT his thing! I'm not a big fan either so I get it... :) He's too cute!

  8. that was too funny! actually my kids were the same way the first and last time we went to the circus, too!

  9. This cracks me up! My oldest daughter is hard to impress as well, but even if she does love something you can't tell by her reaction. I have a roller coaster picture of her with a completely straight face, while everyone else around her is screaming. Some kids just know what they like and feel no need to pretend otherwise.

  10. Omgosh. My kids love the circus. we haven't been in years. I am hoping that it comes back soon. We all want to go. His facial expressions were hilarious. Having fun...but I guess taking it all in. LOL
