We went to the Circus for family night, Luke was sooo excited to see the Elephants, so we decided to take him on a ride. He loved it the whole time clear up until he sat on its back and it lifted its huge head, bring on the tears and screaming.... the whole ride. I couldn't help but laugh watching him. but as soon as he got off he couldn't stop talking about it
next came the pony ride, a completely different story than the elephant, he laughed the whole time and cried when he had to get off, sweet little kid, loves his "zeses" ( horses) .
We had a blast, but I couldnt help but think of it as a huge crime ring... I dont think i have ever seen a circus movie that didnt depict it as a black hole of immorality, murder, thievery , and scum of the earth ring leaders. so the whole time the ring leader was announcing things I couldnt help but just glare at him, thinking he was mistreating his young performers, and torturing the animals to perform. Is it just me or does anyone else see the circus painted in a different light? anyways although it was EXTREMELY over priced Luke loved it and still talks about it and wants to look at the pictures.
