This has been a busy Saturday. Good thing I had a slow day yesterday! We met Lisa and kids at the Gwinnett Arena for the Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey circus. We had gone last year and it was so much fun, so that is what Lisa chose for her birthday this year. It was a good circus, but the best part was how excited Ashby and Brooks were. They both just bounced in their seats almost the whole time, with shouting and clapping and all the rest.
After the circus, they came home with us to spend the night. The original plan was to allow Lisa and David to go out to a nice dinner for her birthday and then to have a quiet evening. The unplanned part was David getting the same stomach virus that the rest of them had already had. That was why David did not make it to the circus. We still kept the kids, so at least they had a quiet house for him to be able to rest. Lisa just took advantage of the quiet time for herself.
The kids were still so excited about the circus that they played circus for hours after we got home. It was really cute. They went to bed a little late, but both slept all night without waking, so that was good. Brooks slept in the guest bed and Ashby slept with us. She just likes to cuddle. Plus, she had a little bit of homesickness. It reminded me of when Lisa was small and we would have to go pick her up in the middle of the night from sleepovers. At least Ashby made it through.
What a great day - but we are both exhausted!
