circus 2013

a couple weekends ago, my mom, chris, addison, and i went to the circus.

i love the circus.

we went last year and it was amazing.

and this year was no different.

we got there about an hour early so addison could do some of the fun activities they had going on before it started.

addison took her picture with a clown {who acted clownish to me, which kinda creeped me out}. and she danced! she loved the dancing. there was a clown teaching the kids how to dance. she had a blast.

of course she got a souvenir. instead of an {overpriced} toy {the kid has way too many toys}, we let her pick an {overpriced} t-shirt.

by far my favorite part of the circus are the elephants. they even had a baby elephant walk out during the beginning!!!

i want a baby elephant. now, please.

and no circus would be complete without {overpriced} junk food. we had popcorn and funnel cake. the ladder is what's all over my pants {powdered sugar is kinda messy}.

i'm already looking forward to going to the circus next year!

zoo run

last weekend my mom, addison, and i ran a race at the zoo.

the weather was great. it was a little chilly, but not freezing. and a little sunny, as evidenced by addison's face below.

i had every intention of wearing my hello kitty hat {which is why, as an adult, i had pigtails. still not sure that's a good enough reason}. anyways, it was too hot for me to wear the hat. so i just sported the pigtails.

i ran with addison in the stroller. the path through the zoo isn't very wide. i may have clipped a number of people with the stroller. unintentionally, of course. but some people do need to take a race etiquette course. runners on the left, walkers on the right. that's all i'll say about that.

we didn't get to see that many animals because we were running, but they had the elephants and {new to the zoo} kangaroos out and really close to us. so we stopped and looked at both. i don't think i've seen all the elephants that close. and i was really excited about seeing the kangaroos. they were really close!

the race was sponsored by outback and michelob ultra. so they had a ton of free food and beer. great way to finish a race!
