Roncalli Circus

Taking the girls to the Circus has been on my list of things to do with them for a while (everyone should go at least once!), so when Roncalli Circus came to Köln, we bought tickets. The girls LOVED it. I apologize in advance for the blurry photos- My camera has no zoom and we weren’t allowed to use flash photography during the show.

Quinnie giggled with delight when she saw the giant chicken (she’s obsessed with chickens)!

The girls love watching cotton candy being made-

but they love to eat it even more!

The girls have been playing “Circus Performers” for weeks now and try to reenact what they saw in the show. One rainy day we were stuck inside and they begged me to photograph their performance. When they saw the pics on the computer they were THRILLED, and Quinnie said, “Make sure you put those on the blog!” So here you go…

Not sure where Quinnie got this idea, but in most of the pics either she’s giving the “thumb’s up!”, or has a hardcore look on her face (usually with her tongue sticking out!).

she winds the swing up high and then spins fast (while looking graceful of course!)

I have a feeling they’ll be playing “circus performers” for months to come…

    Those “circus” pics are a riot! Those will be fun to look at when they are teenagers!

    Loved the “enthralled” photo and the cotton candy shot! The photos of playing circus performers were great..you captured their excitement and fun moments! Mid air photos were amazing..a great camera and a talented photographer I would say. The more I look at Q, the more I see you..as she matures. She has your body and flexibility as a child! Her facial expressions remind me of you too. K looks so cute in her tutu and she wants to do whatever her big sister does..It’s nice to see they are friends as well..xoxo
