The Circus Came to Elmhurst

Last week, we took the babe to see the Kelly Miller Circus as it rolled through town for a fundraiser for the schools .   It took place under a small tent right in the school's backyard.  There were lions (who were a bit sad), camels (who were really fast!), some elephants and other various clowns/jugglers/circus types.  There were also more than a few opportunities to shake some money free from our pockets - and that seemed fine.  We all knew what we were getting into and the overpriced toys and cotton candy were part of the bill.  I just wish/hope that some of the concession dough goes to the school and not just the gate. Unfortunately, we didn't have time to head into this guys booth - which is my favorite part - the Side Show!
