Happy Birthday to me!! We are going to the circus tonight!!!!!
Gran took me to the circus for the first time for my birthday when I was 13 and I had so much fun. We were living with her and it was just the two of us, it was our special night. I have always remembered that night.
I got us tickets to opening night (and my birthday) thinking it would be a fun kid thing to do. The three of us got there a little early so we could walk around and see all the sights. Daddy introduced Safi to cotton candy and she was hooked. Her face lit up, the two of them ate a whole thing of cotton candy. Safi had popcorn and chocolate covered marshmallows (I think that was what they were). We found our seats and watched the preshow activities on the floor of the Erwin Center. All was going well.
Then they started a chopper, screams and kicking.
Then the anouncer started, more screams and kicking; this is not going to work :(
So we left. I was sad, but it was the best thing to do for Safi :( We will try again in a couple of years.
