This past Thursday I had the opportunity to take Lil C, Lil Miss, My man, and also my uncle and cousin to see the Ringling Bros & Barnum Bailey Circus!  This was held at the Palace!

     

Some of my Favorite parts were the Clown!  He just was always doing something to make fun of the other actors!  Which made the crowd laugh louder and louder!  The Band was defiantly my all time favorite! I love when there is a live ensemble!   If you look hard enough, you will be able to see the drummer behind the sound wall!

     

These animals are all Amazing Creatures!   I sit in Awe every time I see them!

Yes you read that right! Monster Jam came to Michigan on March 3!  It was Super awesome…And the best part about it .. I got to share it with some Amazing People.   This was the 1st Monster Jam that My son has ever been to. Typically one would think that an event like Monster Jam was something that A Dad would take his son to… But not in this Family!  It was a great Mother son Bonding Time.   Along with bringing my Son …. We took Papa (my dad), and My friend and his daughter!

This was the Second time I have gone to Monster Jam – and I loved it just as much as the first – if not more.  I tried telling my dad that When we went in January, it wasn’t that loud – that I expected it to be louder… But, Yeah, that didnt work.  Boy was I wrong…. This time was SUPER loud  - but super fun! I think the loudness is one of the biggest parts of the excitement.  The kids didn’t totally see it the same way – but we solved that with some good headphones!

Lil C loved when the Monster Trucks would crust the cars that were on the track.  I cant blame him – because that is one of my favorite parts too… Well, that and when they flip their cars!  After the 1st roll over, Lil C realized that they can flip and crash …. and from then on kept yelling to all the truck to Roll Over!!!!  And one car actually did that!  Not only did it flip to the roof – but it managed to make it ALL the way back to it’s Wheels!  And know who  it was?  It was “Grave Digger – the Legend”  This was Defiantly EVERYONE’S favorite!

*Thank you to Feld Entertainment for the opportunity to go to this Event!  All opinions expressed are 100% my own.  I was not financially compensated for this review.
