Birthday Celebrations!

What's the best way to celebrate a boy's 11th birthday?

Well, how about the circus? With an elephant carrying the American flag as we sing the National Anthem?
I know: Seven motorcycles riding around in a steel cage! Cool!
Tigers! Who doesn't love tigers?
Of course. A parade of elephants. What's not to love about elephants?
And then, after you get home, Birthday Cake! With an elephant on it! Even Mom can draw elephants; they always look like they're smiling. And an elephant with an upraised trunk is supposed to be good luck, right?
And then, my big sister can act silly! Her nursing school clinical practice supervisor's biggest criticism of her was that she is "too happy." Sheesh! Who doesn't want happy at a birthday party, or anywhere else, for that matter?
Notice that Thor is waiting for the food to fly, or at least the wrapping paper. And I wore my new pink birthday dress. We're all festive!

While I'm sure not everyone had as much fun as my little guy on his 11th birthday, Happy Weekend to all of you!

Sounds like a great birthday if you're eleven. The party at home looks even better than the circus. We hope Thor got some cake or paper or whatever.

I cannot remember the last time I went to a circus. More years ago than I like to count. It looks like a good time was had by all including Thor. Diane

Your youngest is getting big. A belated Happy 11th Birthday to Mark. The circus must have been great. I believe we saw that same show when they brought it to Orlando a couple years ago.
