Fun Family Night Out

Darbee Rae has been a very excited little girl for the past few days.  The circus was coming to town and she was so happy to get to go!  Every year, a circus comes to our town for one night.  It is always a great show!  Darbee had been looking forward to it for several days.
Hubby took 1/2 of the day off so he could go with us. 

She picked out a unicorn as a small souvenier.

I loved watching her face.  She was a little scared when the lions and tigers came in.
We were so close!  We were literally only about 15 feet from them! Yikes!

She sat in awe at the girls on the high ropes.

And laughed at the silly clowns.

Here's a pic. of me and my sweet girl. 
I love her so much!

Here she is with her cotton candy in hand.  Yum!

She and hubby enjoying their cotton candy.

Do you think it was good? Ha!

They had face painting which she decided she wanted.  After seeing the other kids with theirs done, I couldn't say no.  They were beautiful!

She reminded me of a little porcelain doll!  They were so good!
We really enjoyed the animals.

There were camels and elephants and puppies. 

We finished off the evening by meeting aunt Maudie and her family for supper and exchanging small Valentine's gifts.  We always enjoy getting together with them.
Tomorrow, we are headed out for a girls getaway to Pigeon Forge.  I am so excited.  I am happy to get away for a few days.  I think I deserve it right?  Ha! 
Hope you all have had a great Valentine's day. 
Until next time.....

  6. Thanks for visiting my blog! Your blog is very cute and so is your little girl. The circus looked like lots of fun- great pics!

  7. Circus looks like a blast. We had one come through a few years ago and I think I liked it as much as the kids. Darbee Rae is so cute! Enjoy! And thanks for visiting my "Mandy"!!! Have fun in Pigeon Forge!!!

  8. Every pic of Darbee made me smile and reminded me of the fun my own kids had when the circus came to the town my mom lives. It was an outside circus and my kids watched the workers put the big top up and they even rode an elephant. Glad you had a fun night out! Take care, Janice
