The circus was in Salem this weekend. My husband was given tickets at work. I'm not a huge fan of the circus because of the treatment of the animals, but we all had a fun time although when we saw the elephants come out and do their tricks, my daughter and I felt so bad for them. They actually looked so sad and when one walked past, I could have sworn I saw a tear rolling out of his eye. My daughter, who is 14, turned to me upset and said she thought the elephant was crying.
The camels were cute and the dogs performed well and looked happy to be there but I couldn't get past the sad look in the elephants eyes.
This photo was taken during intermission. We went out and the kids got funnel cakes, cotton candy and snow cones, all for an outrageous $5.00 a piece! In the photo is my daughter Ashlyn, my husband Nick, and my boys, Braden (wearing black tshirt), Dalton (blue tshirt) and Christian.
