Zing, Zang, Zoom and switch-a-roo!

The Kids at ZING ZANG ZOOM

A vendor from husband's work gave us tickets to The Greatest Show on Earth. We got to go with families from husband's work. We missed the Davis clan and Cone clan. We should really plan a cookout with kids...I'll host. (Don't tell Joey) Anyway, the circus came through and provided lots of entertainment. The kids loved it. Son loved the animals and the guys flipping on the "swing" things. Daughter loved the women getting shot out of the cannons.
We got out of there only spending $100. JK The cotton candy came with this cool hat, that daughter loved to wear. I think it was an excuse to take the bow out of her hair but she looked cute and would not let me take the tag off.
Son got this elephant. He tried to make it do all the things the live elephants were doing. He kept holding it up trying to show the elephants. Sometimes he can seem so grown up to me and then it is moments like that when I realize he is still my little boy and I could squeeze him.
The tigers rock! I get scared for the guy in the cage. I kept thinking, Lord do not let them eat him. I did not want my kids to witness another Siegfried and Roy moment. And then there is this other part of me that sees a tiger and wants to yell WAR EAGLE. That same part of me teared up when they showed Karlos Dansby on the Super Bowl. I miss him wearing the orange and blue.
For those that need a good laugh...
1. My baby at school that threw up on me and caused me to throw away some undergarments brought me a present. A 25 dollar gift card to Victoria's Secret. I laughed out loud when this sweet baby came bringing me that pink bag!
2. Huband and I have weird sleeping habits. Most people have a SIDE of the bed. Their SIDE never changes. Husband and I switch every couple of months. We get tired of sleeping on that side and switch. I know it is weird to some but it is weird to us to claim a side. But the switch thing in the bed has taken on a whole new meaning. Husband gave me an electric blanket for Christmas. He could sleep under one sheet and be fine. I,however, grew up with an electric blanket and love to climb into a warm bed. He bought one with dual controls so his side would be cold. Well we set it up wrong, so the first night he was burning up and I was thinking it didn't work very well. Another day during Christmas break he wouldn't get out of the bed. So I went in and turned his side on 8 and he immediately was up. Then about a week ago I fixed the controls. I now have my side and he has his. I did not tell him that I fixed the controls so the other night, I was brushing my teeth getting ready for bed and asked him to turn on my side. He switched the controls back to the way they were and turned on HIS side. So another night of me cold, him hot. It really makes me laugh because he hates being hot and he only bought it for me. Now he is wishing he did not. AH, the good ole switch-a-roo.

"My side" has been mine for 13 years! I also call the middle (king size bed).

I say we all come over for a cook-out & tell Joey SURPRISE!!

We completely change sides too! People think we are crazy! Whoever gets to bed first usually sleeps on the left. Don't know why, just always has been that way!

I hate the electric blanket. Nothing more gross than getting in a bed that's hot, like somebody's been laying in your spot......

Erica said...

I'm with Joey...i like getting into a cold bed. When are we coming over? :) Sounds great to me! We all should use our Bonefish gift cards together too.

Marsha said...

Yes. We have not used our gift card either...but no kids on that trip.

The funniest thing to me is the first pic where Joey is trying not to be in it.
The kids enjoy the circus too but we try to get out of just going every other year :)
QB and I are checking on getting a "dual" electric blanket. Unless Joey just wants to give us yours.
