The Circus!

Today Tristan got a special treat. Grandpa really wanted to show Tristan the elephants, so he got tickets to the Ringling Brothers & Barnum and Bailey Circus. The show was great. Tristan really enjoyed much of it. Although, he didn't seem to interested in some of the shows (specifically ones not including animals). Of course, his absolute favorite were the elephants. He enjoyed that more than anything. In fact, during intermission, we needed to change his diaper and I needed a break, too. So, Scott, Tristan, and I set out to wait in line for the for the family restroom. What happens to be right next to the family restroom? A vendor selling all sorts of goodies - including elephants. The whole wait in line, Tristan is clamoring for the stand of goods - doing his best to squeeze out of our arms (we took turns holding him). It was a mighty difficult task seeing as how he's about 37 lbs. Since we had a bit before it was our turn to use the restroom, Scott went over and bought him a small plush elephant. Tristan's fussiness subsided and he was absolutely smitten with his new animal.

This video is ever so brief, but I just had to include it. Besides, I'm not sure if I can upload any of the video I took of the circus without infringing any copyrights. Bummer too, I have a 6 minute video of the elephants. Anyway, this video is Tristan's farewell to the circus.

Tristan and Grandpa pose for a picture. Thank you, Grandpa! Oh, and Happy Father's Day, too!

Tristan was so tired from an exciting afternoon at the circus. He was so tired that he fell asleep on the way home (and it wasn't even his bed time yet).

About This Blog

My name is Mary and I'm a working mom with two beautiful children. I've worked for over seven years at a credit union, currently as an administrative assistant. Last fall, I went back to school and started on a Bachelors in Liberal Arts with an emphasis in Elementary Education.

My hobbies, when I have time, include photography, sewing, photo processing, digital scrapbook, online gaming, reading, role playing games like DnD, and board games. But what I really love doing is just being a mom to my two children, Tristan and Melayna.

Tristan, whois four, is an awesome big brother and such an intelligent little boy. He loves Transformers, animals, Dr. Seuss books, and eating.

Melayna, who is one and a half, has definitely taught her momma patience. Unlike her easy going brother, she is curious and persistent. And if something stands in her way, she will definitely let you know her displeasure. Regardless, she is a sweetheart and daddy's little girl.
