The circus! The circus! I love the circus! 

We went to the circus last night for the opening performance of Ringling Bros.' "Zing Zang Zoom." The girls enjoyed it to a point, but after about an hour Emily asked if we could go home. She claimed that she was hungry, but really she was just tired of sitting still (she'd eaten dinner before we left the house).

Misty and I were having fun, but we didn't mind leaving too much -- and we knew there would be whining if we didn't. Having seen a few different Cirque du Soleil productions, we've become somewhat spoiled. "Greatest Show on Earth" or not, Ringling Bros. still doesn't live up to Cirque du Soleil.

We'll be seeing the "Saltimbanco" show up in Huntsville this April. Until then, here's a video clip from last night's event.
