Fully Charged

For Christmas this year the littles each received four gifts: do, read, want, need.  For the baby’s "do" gift, he got tickets to the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Baily circus! 

With a Fully Charged theme, the show was resplendent with all sorts of electrifying scenes and stunts.  The littles literally sat perched on the edge of their seats, awe struck and mesmerized from the moment the ring master commenced the show with those infamous words "Ladies and gentlemen, children of all ages..."

Being the peculiar little thing that the PCP is, his favorite part of the three ring show was singing our National Anthem.  (And I must admit that it brought a tear to my eye to see him stand so proudly, hand over heart and earnestly belt out most of the words.)

I always adore the tight rope artists.  Let’s be honest, I harbored thoughts of becoming one back in the day.  (Way, way back in the day.)

At intermission, the littles got to each choose their long awaited treat.  And, as expected, they went for the sno cones.  Again.  (How many strangely shaped cups does one family need?)

And when the show resumed, Honey’s favorite act was cued up...the “human fuze” was completely lit on fire and went catapulting across the arena in about two seconds flat.  I must admit that it was pretty impressive.

As for our little guest of honor, he was positively smitten with the talented pack of pachyderms.  I’m not sure that he blinked during their entire performance.

After the show, we treated the littles (read: ourselves) to Felini’s – our favorite college pizza joint.  As expected, the place was teeming with students, the vibe was edgy, the pizza was delish and we juuuuust didn’t quite fit in.

There’s nothing I love more than an outing with my three favorite boys!
