The big top

Well, it was OVER a week ago now since we went to the Circus, but here is the recap:) Let me begin by saying that we are not really "circus people", but when Grandma says she got tickets for everyone, who's going to argue? So there. We all had a great "linner" at Azteca and then we headed over to Comcast arena. John enjoyed engaging the PETA picketers before the show;) No pictures of that:) Mina liked meeting the clowns before the show:)
and the "pre" elephant show
Mina was excited to sit next to grandma!
I know it looks like he's tired, but rest assured he was NOT happy for the whole first half of the show. He sat with his arms folded and a stern look on his face. The only thing we can think of that set him off was he had to change seats before the show started! Geez, Max! Well during intermission we moved around and he sat next to me.
and daddy:)
much better:)  They said that there was no flash photography and even though "everyone else was doing it" I didn't really take any pics during the show. For not being "circus people" we had a pretty good time:) And hey, the kids liked it, which is what it's all about, right?:)

Our Peeps

We have a great group of friends! Tonight for community group we had another "theme" night:) We were to dress as a character from one of our favorite movies! So let's see if you can guess who everyone is:)
We'll start easy on you:)
If you can't see her wings, little Mikaelin is a flying monkey! So cute:) They brought "melted witch" brew to drink:)
Next up:
Tony Stark generously shared his booze with us;)
The next was a group effort
If you need another clue:
If you haven't guessed yet you can take a ride down the "Highway to the danger zone"! We even got serenaded by "Maverick"and "Goose" You've lost that lovin' feelin'! Regrettably, I didn't get a picture of that:(
See if you know this one:
Marty McFly's mom:)
OK, getting trickier:
Yes that is a Twinkie hot dog he's eating;) If you have seen "UHF" you now know immediately who he is. This costume brought on about 10 min of "UHF" movie quotes:)
And here's another:
She may be cartoon but she's been in lot's of movies:)
What about us?
"The Dude abides". I don't know about you, but I take comfort in that:) We still can't believe only like 3 people in our community group had seen our movie! CLEARLY we need to have another "Big Lebowski" movie night!

Thanks for a fun evening friends!
