Lleyton's Career Day
Yesterday was a day the boys had been waiting on for quite awhile, Circus Day. The Ringling Brothers are in town and we could not miss the chance to take the boys, as it is our thought that one day Lleyton may very well travel with the circus.
Lleyton's lack of fear, accompanied by his incredible athletic prowess could make him a viable candidate for few of the acrobatic positions we saw yesterday. One of the interesting tidbits that we learned during our trip to the circus was that one of the groups of acrobats and the Tiger Tamer all hailed from Russia. There must be something in the water in that part of the world that leads folks to that line of work, which helps explain a little part of Lleyton's personality.
Here's the boys and Sara getting geared up for the show.
The excitement was palpable.
Here we all are eagerly anticipating the second half of the show.
After watching some of the gravity defying moves the acrobats pulled off during the course of the show, I know Lleyton would like be part of the team, but I am going to have to put my foot down about that career choice. I just wouldn't be able to sit in the audience and watch.
So if you are keeping track, mark CIRCUS off of the list of possible career choices for our little man. Sorry Lleyton.
Our favorite part of the show:
Parker - Tigers
Lleyton - Elephants
Sara - Dogs
Me - (although it bordered on inhumane) Tigers
