Our life is a circus...

really it is!! But a few weeks ago we were invited to go along with Auntie Holly, Uncle Justin, Miss Ceili and baby Keaton to see what kind of fun the REAL clowns have at the Circus. We had such a good time! Carter really didn't know what to think of all the men in costumes but he loved the music, animals, and tight-rope walkers!!
Carter, looking just a little afraid or perhaps even a little confused about a guy with a big red nose!
After the show, we had Ceili and Keaton come over to our place to play for a few hours while their mommy and daddy went out on the town. Carter just loves when the Ice Cream Truck comes by our house...which is like twice a day. He starts dancing to the music and goes over to the window to watch it drive by and says, "Ice, Ice, Ice" that many times or more until one of us will acknowledge that we too hear the Ice Cream Truck. I, honestly, have always been a little leery of a man driving a truck prying his business on the taste buds of little children, so we, or I should say, I have never let Carter join in as the neighborhood children flock to the truck. Matt is always telling me that the Ice Cream Truck is really no different than Gymboree or The Childrens Place, both of which I love, because they too are only in the business to get money from little children. Ok, so maybe he is right and since Ceili was over for a special day, I guess it deserved a special treat...and they both loved it!!

I'm glad the kiddos had a good time at the circus. I think it is neat that Carter and Ceili got an ice cream from the ice cream truck! One day they will remember that. You girls always ran out to see the ice cream truck, you loved when they came by. I don't think any of you suffer any long term effects of it...lol. Love you.
