Bring on the clowns! Part I

#36 - Go to the Circus!  Bring on the clowns!
The circus is in town!  Saturday afternoon Karen & Brina and Malek & I took the kids to the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus at the Frank Erwin Center.  I haven't seen the circus since I was a kid!  Not sure who was more excited.  :-D  We saw elephants, tigers and clowns oh my!  We were there early enough for the pre-show and the actual circus lasted about 2 hours.  My favorite was the motorcycle cage and Evan liked the trapeze acrobats.  On the way home we stopped at Red Robin for dinner.  All in all a great day!  Next week, the Clown Crawl!

#15 - home cooked meals (66/143)
Friday night I made cheesy jambalaya with shrimp.  Karen and Brina joined us for dinner.  The Jambalaya was a great success!  No leftovers, boy was I shocked.  :-P  Malek started making his homemade beer...and I drank one too many Mojitos. 
Sunday night I made Italian lasagna.  This was my first time making lasagna (gasp, yes I know).  Besides taking a while to bake it was pretty easy.  Very tasty too! 

#40 - read more
Finished another book in the TrueBlood/Sookie Stackhouse series.  I started reading these books in July on my Alaskan trip and now I'm down to the last 2 books (out of 8)!  Go me.
