the greatest show on earth

The pic is super dark, but this chick was hula hooping with a gazillion hoops. Seth leaned over and said, 'Mommy, all you ever do is one. How come you don't hoop with lots and lots like that girl? I like it better.' Hmph.
Paige and Daddy were big fans of the trapeze trio.
Dustin is still horrified by the derring-do. At one point he leaned over during the show and said, 'I don't think this is OSHA approved.'
And a ride on the train ended the circus in a happy way. When it stopped for the kiddies to get off, S&P scampered to the engine (there was a BELL up there!) as fast as they could and got buckled in, hoping no one would notice. And then they refused to come out for the operator, and I had to forcibly remove them. Silly.

I dropped the camera and killed the flash circuit.
Did you notice how dark the campfire was? Boo.

campfire fairytales

Seth wanted to build a campfire, and then we added chairs for lots of buddies that were camping together. See the tent up on the 'mountain'?? Sweet!

Paige headed up this project (see her wielding the butter knife with precision!!) - with sweet success! Super easy recipe that was totally worth trying out, but we should have made more. I'll remember that for next time - and we'll start tweaking it a bit. Less sugar, I think. So yummy though.
