the big top

My shower is next weekend and it's a circus theme so how fitting is it that there was a circus in downtown Plymouth on Tuesday!?! 

I had the day off and spent the day at the doctor (babe and I are perfect per usual), shopping, cleaning (which apparently I will be still doing for a while until we can find someone decent to hire to help me) and doing some chalk drawings in the nursery.  As soon as DJ got home from work he told me that there was a circus starting just down the street.  So exciting!  We got there and quickly realized that the circus is more for parents with children that are outside of the womb currently but it was still really fun.

There were tigers, elephants, zebras, camels, dogs, pirates...it was wild.  (I did get slightly emotional over the fact that they use a whip type element to get the tigers to do what they wanted them to do.)  We walked over to the ponies that we corralled slightly off the beaten path during intermission and fed them grass,  It brought a lot of small children over which I'm sure was not part of the actual circus but it was far more fun than sitting on an enormous elephant in my voluptuous state ;)
