The Sickerus: The Greatest Show on Earth

As much as we miss daddy while he is gone, it sure does make our Friday, Saturday and Sunday fun! We have been really capitalizing on our quality fam time when he is home. We both agreed these are our last few weekends to really get out and do some fun things, so this weekend we decided to take Alex to the Rainforest Cafe for dinner and the Circus.
Here are two cute pics of Alex and Nathan at Rainforest. She told us at dinner, "I love eating in da jungle!" We were thinking about how much different it is now with a 3 1/2 year old. She's such big stuff. We enjoyed dinner with our little friend.

The Circus, or "sick-er-us" as Alex calls it was a BLAST! We had great seats...third row right in the center, so Alex was able to see everything. I think I watched her more than the actual show, but trust me it was entertaining. The best was watching her shove popcorn, cotton candy, ice cream and a snow cone down her mouth (no, not all at once) and watch the show at the same time. We were all on a serious junk food high!

There were all of the usual talents-- elephants, tigers, trapeze artists, etc. The highlight of the show for us was the "puppy talent show." There were all kinds of little dogs; mainly poodles and poms, but there was one Yorkie just like our pups at home. Alex was so excited because she thought "Macy" (our puppy) was performing at the circus. Of course "Macy" was the only disobedient dog-- she was barking and not minding and went the wrong direction on the ladder, and the trainer was running after her the whole time. We are sure this was all a part of the act, but we were cracking up! The best part of it all was when we got home....Alex saw Macy and said "Macy, you did a great job at the Sick-er-us today." Are you kidding me?! She is TOO much! I'm sure you had to be there, but it was hilarious!
