au cirque

for our farewell grand adventure in alabama, mere mere and opa d treated summer, afton, and baby caleb to their first trip to the circus.

not pictured: the professional hula-hoop dancers (and aerialists) who have inspired summer and afton's (but especially summer's) new occupational goals. i suppose running away to join the circus should no longer be considered an idle threat.

also, we are not unaware of the debate surrounding animal training and animal performances in circuses. since attending, we have learned even more and have become committed to patronizing only humane or animal-free circuses. this particular circus was small and family run and focused mostly on people performers. for a list of animal-free circuses, see here.
