Weebie Goes To The Circus!

Once upon a time, in a land far far away lived a boy named Weebie.

Circus-4

He grew up hearing about lions and tigers and bears, (oh my!) and had only seen them in books and at the zoo. He longed for the day that he could sit in an arena and watch them do tricks.

Circus-1

His Mommy told him about a 5 toed pachyderm called an elephant, and she told him they were bigger than a car! Weebie couldn't wait to meet one.

One day The Circus came to town. Weebie's Mommy knew this would be the perfect time for him to experience the wonder and magic that only The Circus could bring. She hopped online, ordered some tickets and sat in anticipation for The Big Night.

The time finally arrived for The Circus, and Mommy built up the suspense all day long to little Weebie. They took him to the pre-show because they were told they could pet the animals. Weebie was most excited.

Circus-2

Sadly enough, the animals couldn't come out to play for the pre-show. But, the clowns were there in all their glory.

Circus-3

And so were the dancers.

Circus-7

And even a costume rack that Mommy and Weebie played with!

Circus-5

Mommy said the costume weighed about 15 pounds. She didn't know how in the world those clowns danced and flipped around in those clothes. She also said her particular dress made her look like she gained 70 lbs.

Daddy bought Weebie some cotton candy, and it even came with a hat!

Circus-8

Weebie's Glam*Ma and Grandpa arrived right when the show was about to start. Weebie danced and clapped his hands for about 30 minutes straight and Mommy, Daddy, Glam*Ma and Grandpa could NOT stop laughing at him. Little Weebie was living a dream!

There were all kinds of fun acts, two of Weebie's favorites were the trapeze artists and the women that got shot out of cannons!! Mommy tried to snap a picture of the women flying through the air, but her camera went off too early, so she only got a picture of them about to go down the barrel.

Circus-13

When the elephants came out to play, Weebie was completely entranced!

Circus-9

Circus-18

He pointed to them as if to say, "are those the 5-toed pachyderms you told me about, Mommy?"

Circus-17

Circus-16

Circus-23

Then it was time for the tigers to come out. They scared Mommy because she thought they looked a little too angry. They kept growling and showing their teeth. Mommy said she wouldn't get in a cage with them for all the money in the world.

Circus-20

"Those tigers aren't REALLY mean, are they Mommy???"

Circus-10

Circus-21

Circus-22

The white tigers were Weebie's favorite. He even got a stuffed white tiger and elephant from Glam*Ma! Along with a light-up toy and a snow cone and...and.... (Glam*Ma tends to get excited at the gift stands.)

Circus-14

The show eventually came to an end and a the elephants did their final trick ....

Circus-19

the dancers danced their final dance .....

and confetti fell from the sky!

Circus-24

Circus-25

It was a magical evening for little Weebie and his family.

He went to sleep dreaming of clowns, animals and people dancing in the air.

The End.
