The Circus is in Town!

Abby's favorite part! (of course!)
This was my favorite part!
The "Bello-bration" finale!
My four favorite people! Look at those smiles!
On Friday night we loaded the kids in the car and headed off to get some dinner. When we were finished, we drove to a train station near the restaurant and got the kids out of the car. After about a dozen, "Where are we?"'s, we told the kids that the city of Charlotte had just finished this new train station and that we thought it would be fun to take it into uptown and get dessert down there. They thought that sounded good, so on the train we went.... We rode for about 25 minutes and then got off at the arena. The kids still had no clue what was going on, but as soon as we rounded a corner, all you could see were circus trailers with the "Greatest Show on Earth" logos everywhere. Still, no clue that we were going.... Abby says, "Look, the circus is here!" and the other 2 chime in, "The circus is here, the circus is here!" Rusty then says, "Wouldn't it be cool if you had the best dad in the world, and he had tickets?" He pulls them out of his pocket and they all screamed! It was so sweet to see their faces! They were so excited! The show was amazing and of course the animals were the kids favorite part. We had a great time and as we were leaving Carter says to Rusty, "Dad, this really was the greatest show on Earth!" Pretty cool, huh??
