It’s opening night of the Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus in Jacksonville! Long story, made short – we didn’t make it tonight as we had planned. Bummer. (Looking for a discount? Check out this previous post!) But…the good news is we were invited to attend this morning’s Elephant “It’s Electric” Slide Party! The circus ringleader, clowns and dancers had party-goers up playing and dancing!

It was really neat to see circus members interacting with the kids! I guess Maggie is still too young to actually “get” it because she was more interested in her juicebox and crayon party favors. My nieces also joined us for the party and while the girls (Maggie included) were a little scared of the clowns – the real excitement came when the three HUGE elephants joined the party! And yes, I’ll admit – I was excited too!
I couldn’t get over the size of the elephants! I loved that as soon as Maggie saw them, she started yelling “Oh hi elephants – how are you?” and waving at them. So silly.
While, I’m sad we missed out on tonight’s circus – I am excited that we were able to participate in today’s party. It was a great adventure and I’m already looking forward to next year…and maybe if I’m lucky, Maggie will enjoy more than just her juicebox!
