Cirque du Soleil

First off, I think I checked the spelling of that.  Clark and I first saw a show in New York, mostly because his original plan fell through.  So, off to Zarkana we went.  I think that Cirque du Soleil has a little bit of mystical quality to it, it's not hard to be worried about what the show is going to be like.  But I have to say that we loved it!  There were some amazing acrobatics, of course, but a couple of other acts that were intriguing as well.  So, when I found out that it was coming to town, of course we had to get tickets.  And a show is so much better with friends!  We had 3 other couple join us, Kira and her hubby, The R family and my brother and his wife.  It was spectacular!  And a little chilly and wet outside.  But, that aside, there is something amazing about watching a trapeze act right above you.  And we truly were in the big top.  Ovo rocked, with the bug theme, the giant egg that was being carried around and the music.  Clark and my favourite act was the jumping grasshoppers.  They were the trampoline act and it's crazy the things that they did.  All in all, a fantastic night and I am happy to say that we will probably become Cirque du Soleil regulars!

Kyrie's Birthday Party

For Kyrie's birthday this year, she wanted to go to Heritage Park. I told her that would mean that she could only invite a couple of friends because it would cost a little bit more.  She picked her 2 very good friends from Pre-School the year before.  And we happily invited the boys, and those in my family that could come.  Love going to Heritage Park with my immediate and extended family!  We just have so much fun and it was really a great birthday party!  We even took more time then I originally thought it was going to take, totally making me late for the Relief Society Broadcast!  Happy Birthday Little Miss!

Sometimes the best place to contain the masses, involved a room with a door... and bars.

Kyrie and her two friends!
Going on the Caterpillar, Aiden wanted to ride solo and was thrilled that he was tall enough to do so.
Little Man was also happy that he was tall enough to ride!
The 3 Ladies
We just picked up these weird people along the way. Or maybe, we're related to them.  Can't remember.
It's also called the Kissing Ride.
The advantage to having your birthday close-ish to Halloween... Glow-in-the-Dark fangs!
