The Greatest Show on Earth

About a month ago, our little family ventured up to the Cox Convention Center in OKC to attend the Greatest Show on Earth.  Yep, you guessed it, the circus came to town and we weren't about to let it go by without taking Layla and Jenna to see the big show!  We got there a little early because they were allowing ticket holders on the floor to meet the performers and see some the acts up close and personal.  However, when we got there, we decided it may have been a bit too overwhelming and that we had better just watch from our seats...I mean, it doesn't get any better than the front row, right?  

Layla and Daddy checking out the tumblers.

Jenna was enjoying her view (and her sippy cup).

Once all the audience members were ushered back to their seats, Jenna spotted the man selling boomerangs.  She really wished she had brought her piggy bank.  

Layla had no idea there was a clown act going on right behind her.  

But, she was enjoying all of the opening acts and giving them a polite applause.

 Jenna was pretty much over the opening acts and ready for the real show to begin!

The show opened with the singing of the Star Spangled Banner.  

Layla and Daddy kept their eyes on that flag (or maybe it was the elephant that captivated them so).

Jenna was super impressed with all that was unfolding right in front of her eyes...

...and Layla thought she would try out some of the acrobatic moves herself!

Unfortunately, these are about the extent of my pictures.  I'm really finding it more and more difficult to take pictures while trying to keep our two little circus acts under control!  Regardless, we all had the greatest time at the Greatest Show on Earth!!!
