|We swam this week! It was breezy and just a little too chilly to stay in long. The kids love swimming though! Check out that big smile on Layne!|
My sister Lynn researched a bunch of Geocaches right here in Managua and on Saturday we took our first cache hunting expedition! The kids LOVED it! They caught right on to finding the coordinates and then searching for the "treasure." Reid even found one of the caches!
Saturday kind of had a mind of it's own. We ran a few errands that needed to be done then after lunch we hunted the geocaches. While we were out we drove past a big circus tent. On a whim we decided to go check it out. It turns out there was a circus performance that evening and they were selling tickets 2 for the price of 1! We thought, what the heck, and bought ourselves tickets for that evening! Our expectations were all over the board. The kids were hoping for tigers jumping through flaming hoops and elephants juggling peanuts. Mitchell and I weren't quite sure what to expect. Clowns for sure, maybe some dancing? We were all enchanted and quite blown away at what a great show it was!!
|We decided to spring for front row! The tickets were 2 for 1 afterall!|
This juggler was impressive and had a fun stage presence!
Uncle Spencer introduced Audrey to a quick change magic YouTube video quite a while ago and she loved it! She has even practiced the craft at home inside of a sleeping bag on a number of occasions! She was totally entranced by this number.
The flying acrobats were really fun to watch! It was nerve wracking for me though! I keep hoping my boys will want to play the violin rather than play football, ride bulls in the rodeo or compete in motocross! Momma doesn't need anymore gray hairs!
Though this is a traveling circus group from all over Latin America these strong men are from Nicaragua. Way to represent! They were incredible!
Audrey was a BIG fan of the Frozen visitors! Anna, Olaf and Elsa each performed a song and dance! Let it Go sung by Elsa herself is so magical even in Spanish! It was sweet to hear so many little princesses in the audience singing along!
Bumblebee was awesome!! Toward the end of the show a yellow Camaro drove out on to the stage. It didn't occur to me that it was anything more than a sports car out there to rev the engine and look cool. It was revving the engine and driving forward and back right there in front of us on the stage! **I'll be honest, I was planning my emergency escape route in case he popped the clutch and ended up in our laps.**
It was a really fun show!
