I am finally getting around to blogging about our first trip to the Circus a week and a half ago.  I love my new job, but we had testing all last week, so I have been super busy!

The twins were so excited about going to the Circus, and had been talking about it for days.  We had good seats, with great views of the action in each ring.  There was also room for the kids to move around, without wandering off.  They enjoyed most of the show, with the exception of a few parts that were very slow moving.  They especially loved the white tigers, elephants, and dogs.  They wanted nothing to do with the clowns!!!  At intermission we were able to walk down to the floor and get very close to the elephants.  At one point a clown approached us and the twins grabbed on to us and held on for dear life.  When they came out to do their act, Tayden said, "It's time to go to the car Mommy!!!"  My camera was acting crazy for most of the night so a lot of my pictures are extremely dark or blurry - very disappointing!!!  We bought popcorn, nachos, and two glowing toys that amazingly haven't broken yet.  Overall, the night was a great success and the twins are still talking about all of the animals.

My sweet grandfather passed away peacefully yesterday morning.  We already miss him so much, but find comfort knowing that he is in Heaven free of pain, surrounded by angels and so many others that went before him.  I did get to see him last weekend when he was inducted into the ACU Hall of Fame - very thankful for that.  I was able give him hugs and kisses and tell him again just how much I loved him.  I want to do a separate blog with those pictures, so look for that soon!
