Running away to the circus?

The girls had their second trip to the circus this weekend. The show was good, but it seemed way too long. We got there a little after 1 and enjoyed about 15 minutes of the "pre-show" down on the floor with the performers. As you can see below, Madeleine enjoyed the costumes and performers. Lily said she was scared of the clowns, especially after some clown underwear got thrown her way. She wasn't scared last year, so we weren't sure what to make of it.

Of course, Madeleine's goal for the afternoon was to be good enough to get a light-up souvenir. The whole last hour she kept asking when it would be over and she could get her thing. Finally, she fell asleep about 15 minutes before the show ended. When we passed two souvenir booths before choosing one, she was in tears.
All ended well though, and we were finally home a little after 4pm.
