Circus World Museum

We were VERY busy while we were in Wisconsin so this will take several posts each with lots of pictures! I will try to keep them short, but we took so many pictures and you moms know how it is....its so hard to pick just a few.

Anyhow, one of the first days we were in Wisconsin we headed to Circus World Museum. Andrew's hometown, Baraboo, is home to the Ringling Bros. winter headquarters. During the summer months they have performances and you can also go and look at the old circus wagons that have been restored. They have an ancient carousel as well, it doesn't even have seat belts...much to Abby's dismay. Abby was in awe of the performances, especially the dancing elephant and enjoyed her first taste of cotton candy. It is so much fun to share these things with Abby and see the excitement and joy in her eyes. I am sure it was even more special for Andrew since he grew up in Baraboo and spent many a summer days at the Circus World Museum. (I think he may have even dated a performer or 2!)

MMMM...Cotton candy!
That is an awfully big bite :)

There's always time to stop and pick some dandelions!

Ok now, who's really having more fun, Abby or Grammy?

Now that's more like it!!
