Step right up ladies and gentlemen! Get your tickets for the greatest show on earth! The circus came to town and I could not resist making it part of our Sunday Funday!
Well it didn’t start out as a funday…we were on our way down the driveway when we hit a patch of ice that slid us into the stone wall at the bottom of the drive. Not fun! It sounded a lot worse than the damage to the car when we got out to examine, but we were stuck! If it weren’t for our incredibly wonderful neighbors we would’ve been in a total jam. They heard the crunch and came to the rescue by giving us a pull away from the wall and safely back out on the road. Thank you neighbors!!! ❤️❤️❤️
Once back on the road and thanks to the very kind staff at Morning Fork, we were only a little late for our brunch reservations. Needless to say, we started with mimosas! Morning Fork on Frankfort Avenue was hopping they have a delicious brunch menu. I tried the short rib Benedict and Jeff had the delectable bowl of biscuits & gravy.
Then it was off to the circus! Now I love a good circus and had never been to the Kosair Shrine Circus. The Kosair Shrine Circus is performed by George Carden Circus International. George is the fifth generation in show business and has been in the circus business all of his life. The circus travels over 40,000 miles each year in the United States and Canada. The season lasts 42 weeks, and the Kosair has been hosting since 1925. Both of his sons work elephants in the circus. They present a beautiful three-ring production which is fascinating to children of all ages - and especially to this kid at heart.
It had it all: Acrobats, tight-rope walkers, clowns, camels, horses, death-defying cage motorcycles, elephants and a guy that they shot out of a cannon. 😳😁
(I was also awarded “Best Dressed” in attendance. Well, it wasn’t official, but a sheriff’s deputy pronounced it as we were leaving, so that’s pretty good.) 😂
This is one of my favorite dresses/cape combo! It was custom designed by Jeff and made by heartmycloset on Etsy! She has all kinds of styles, color options, and pattern combos! Add a popcorn handbag and I’m ready for a day at the circus!
