52 Weeks of Happiness - Week 17

Ethan and I met with my cousin Karim, his wife, Minaz and their son, Kahzmir, on Sunday.
I felt guilty, as we're car-less here, as they are, and they borrowed my aunt's car, drove out to Mississauga, back into the city, then back out here to drop us off. 

We had a wonderful evening at the circus.

They were giving the kids rides on the elephants.
Kahzmir was all about that.
Ethan would have none of that. 

There were some gorgeous horses.
While they were beautiful, I couldn't help feel a little sad,
they didn't look naturally white,
but they were graceful.

The aerial was spectacular.

Ethan is normally scared of clowns,
but this one was too funny to be scared of.

There were adorable puppies.

I loved the guy on the motorcycle.
Not only was he flipping around,
on a motorcycle,
high in the air,
but the pole was on his father's shoulders.

Ethan's favourite, 
was the man and the pool.
He was very clumsy.
He kept falling.
Ethan was getting worried, 
and even scared.
But when the pool turned out to be a trampoline,
Ethan thought it was brilliant!

The elephants were fantastic.

My favourite had to be
our ringmaster
and dare devil extraordinaire
who walked on the outside of a "hamster cage"
suspended high in the air
juggling fire!

Happiness is a wonderful afternoon with friends and family at the circus.

I've never been a big circus fan, but your pics are great. I'm glad you all had a good time!

How fun!

That looks like a lot of fun. I bet those boys had a blast! They look close in age, so it was good that Ethan had a mate to be with.

So fun! Don't feel bad. Coming to the 905 to see you guys is much easier than getting on a plane and coming to Africa.
