My Surprise Date!

Last night Phil called me on his way home from work.
"Jenna Im taking you on a surprise date, we'll need to leave at 7."

I LOVE SURPRISES!

We had made plans that afternoon to have family dinner but Phil said don't worry they can come too.

WE WENT TO THE CIRCUS!

Phil got coupons from work for buy-one-get-one-free.



Jenn tried to pay me $10 to get on an elephant with the babies. Sometimes the comedic sacrifice is too much.

Ruby and Lewis' first circus. We got their early and got the best seats in the house!
Jack and Beka probably had the best time.

This was also Wubby's first circus. And this is Finn our new bestfriend(Phil's engineer friend).

We might have been the only ones our age there! I looooooooove the circus!

This guy had no net or wires. He was walking upside down!

Uh-oh, runaway pony! He just didn't want to cooperate.
The poodles were my favorite! One little guy's only job was to hold the rope, how did they get him to do that?

Look Nancy, you would have been falling out of your chair laughing!

So most of the performers were from Brazil... how did they get to Corvallis?

This very tall yet skinny contortionist did some very gross things.

and then he squeezed into a very small box.

So when do you make the decision to give up on your Olympic dreams and join the circus? There were some very strong and talented performers.

During half time we got a picture with a python. I chose not to touch it. SICK!

The grand finale. Everyone loves the elephants.
Wait wait wait ok this was the grand finale. all the Brazilians came out with American flags and rose this giant one. Lewis started chanting "USA USA" he is so hilarious.

We ended the night with a cherry dipped cone from Dairy Queen, my favorite.
