The Big Top

Marilyn's 2nd Birthday was September 12- this also happened to be the weekend that the Ringling Bros & Barnum & Bailey Circus was in town. We had a very full day celebrating Marilyn's Birthday and taking in the fun of the Circus.
First she attended her gymnastic class, then we had lunch and headed downtown for the Circus! After that it was time for Marilyn's nap as we prepared for her birthday party. The evening of family fun culminated in an exciting round of "Happy Birthday" at Marilyn's Barnyard Bash.

Grandma, Marilyn & Daddy off to the Circus!


Marilyn sat transfixed throughout the 2 hour show.

Such a sight to see- music, animals, lights and so much to absorb.

I think one of Marilyn's favorite parts was the elephants and horses. She loves the animals and enjoyed seeing their fancy tricks.
Marilyn's day of birthday fun was made even better with her Pappaw & Grandma in from TN for the weekend. She loves spending time with them, and we are so happy they have chosen to make her birthday weekend one of their special visits. Marilyn lights up seeing their pictures and talking to them on the phone. Now we can add a visit to the Circus among our special times together.

No surprise she loved the elephants - they are her favorite animal sound to make. She is getting so big!

She does have a love for aminals.
I think it helps that she gets to the Zoo as often as she does. She is such a wonder.
