Fun Under the Big Top!

So true to form, Saturday it poured.  Again.  It came down in buckets!  Ruining our plans for an Easter Egg Hunt, so what were we to do?  Luckily the Circus was in town, so we went.

When I say 'in town', I use the term very loosley.  It was actually at the George Mason Patriot Center in Fairfax, Va.  which isn't in our town, but it was close enough to go.  Jim was at the golf course working in the morning, so Bella and I left from home and headed down to meet him.  Once there, we all went together.
Bella was very excited!  Jim had taken her to a smaller circus the year before, but this was the Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey Circus-the big show.  The Greatest Show On Earth, and it did not dissapoint!
We arrived a little early and were allowed onto the stadium floor to mingle iwth some of the performers.  That was pretty neat!  Bella got a red, clown nose and a tatoo on her hand, we saw an elephant paint a picture and some 'clowning' around before it was time to go to our seats. 
Our seats were very good and we just really enjoyed ourselves.   Bella was totally enthralled!  She kept saying 'Grandaddy, look!' 'GaGa, look!' At one point she told me that she wished she had more eyes, that way it would be easier for her to see everything.  Ha!  Jim and I had a blast too.  As a matter of fact, we are not sure who had more fun, Bella or us!  

What a fun day!
We were all pretty worn out by the time that we got home, especially Isabella. 
We left the house at noon and didn't get home until after 7:00 PM., it was a long day. 
So we all turned in pretty early for the night to look forward to another day of new adventures and fun on Sunday! 
Hopefully, the rain will stop soon!
