I went to the animal fair***

When you don't have kids you can sometimes lose out on some of the fun activities that people with kids have an excuse to do. Which is why we so often borrow other peoples children. You know, to go to water parks...or kids museums??

We headed out to the Circus yesterday. I love me some circus. (Please don't give me a hard time about animal cruelty.) I really didn't think that it would be an issue with my head at all. But I spent a lot of time at the circus trying not to cry. There were so many adorable children looking at their parents and smiling with that thank you for bringing me here smile. I was sad. It was very sad to look at them and know that on our laps should have been an 11 month old. He should have been there smiling and watching and looking at the lights and being all excited.

Anywho...we still had a good time. Thankfully Avery wanted to sit on my lap for a little bit so I got to share some excitement with a child, just not my own.

Pictures?? I've got them :)


Penguins (aka clowns):

Guys on stilts:

Guys on motorcycles:

Kids eating cotton candy:

Kids being silly:

And people who were really only looking forward to lunch at Red Robin afterwards:

*** is a song we used to sing in Girl Scouts!!

And Laurie Berkner covers the song too :-)

I'm glad that you got through it and had a good time. It is hard to be in those kid-centric environments. Sort of like Disney World.

you are a strong woman for daring to go to such a kid-laden event (a hellava lot stronger than i am). i wish an 11-month old blue was sitting on your lap too. (hugs)

How fun! I know the kiddos loved it.

I know what you mean about losing out on kid activities. One thing I have really missed is Easter. I loved decorating eggs, but decorating them by myself was no fun. Especially when there was no one to hide them for me!

I totally know that song. It is on almost every kids cd I own and automatically plays on way too many toys. ha ha
