Good 'ol Fashion FUN

Before our weather decided to take a turn for winter, we got outside for some good 'ol fashion fun with chalk. You won't be able to tell from the pics, but BB2 is COVERED in chalk. She is all shades of yellow, purple and blue. I guess she was thinking, what's the point of making a picture, if you can't scoot right through it afterwards? And I am pretty sure at on point she decided to see if the stick of chalk tasted any good.

The girls cooperated very nicely for me when I decided I wanted to make chalk outlines of them. They looked a little funny at first, but BB1 helped get them "dressed" and accessorized both pictures very nicely. The addition of hair really added to the overall effect.

We also took the girls to their very first Circus. Barnum & Bailey's was in town and we were able to make the last show on the very last day. Before the show started they let everyone go down on the floor for a little pre-show action (which is how we got to be so close) and the girls got to try on capes and clothes that the circus performers get to wear.

BB1 thought the pre show was pretty cool although BB2 was far from impressed until the puppies came out. Then she got really excited. I think she thought the elephant was pretty cool too.

BB1 was pretty proud of her White Tiger Snow Cone Souvenir cup (and no - you do not want to know how much the silly thing cost) but the smile on her face was worth any price. BB2 was pretty happy with the big bucket of popcorn we got the kids to snack on.

Papa Bear and I just sat back and took in all the energy and excitement of the place. Oh, how I love to people watch. It's been ages since I have been to the circus, and I have to say it was a pretty good show. By the end of the night we had 2 very tired little ones. I think they were both asleep within minutes of getting back to the car and heading home. All in all a very fun night!

Our kids are DYING to go to the circus this year, but I think it ends this week and it's probably not going to happen. Ah well. We took them 2 years ago and did the "circus celebrity" thing and somehow we can't bring ourselves to go now and not do the whole celebrity thing. Of course, THAT is really expensive :D.

Maybe next year ;).
The girls are adorable! Can't wait to see you guys again!

Love the pics of the girls! I remember when Kate used to scoot through the chalk drawings - what a mess but oh so fun.
