Barnum's Funundrum!-Full Slide Show
We posted a bunch about the circus in November, but we wanted to give you one last full blown slide show, as we're summing up highlights from 2010. We've seen the circus in the past, but this year was extra special, since the kids are so involved in circus arts themselves now. The kids have a new appreciation of just how hard tight rope walking, trapeze, clowning and juggling are. Of course the pros at The Greatest Show on Earth, make it look easy.
As big hockey fans, we were happy to see fans in Blackhawks jerseys keepin' the faith at The United Center while our boys were off playing outta town, on their annual "circus trip".
We even got to meet a baby elephant, Barack, who was born on January 19th, 2009, just in time for the President's inauguration.
From the participatory pre-show, through the final death defying aerial acts, we were entranced. If you'd like to see show videos, learn about the 15 year anniversary of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Center for Elephant Conservation, and more, check out their web site HERE.
In the next two months ChiIL Mama's giving away family 4 packs of tickets to both Disney On Ice presents Disney/ Pixar's Toy Story 3! at The United Center and Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam at Allstate Arena. We'll have photo filled recaps after the shows, and lots of fun facts leading up to Toy Story 3 on January 26-30th and Monster Jam, February 11-13th.
We'll also be checkin' out The Chicago Wolves hockey team this week. So ChiIL out with us for hot fun on ice in the new year!
