The kids are out of the house. No really. Everyone is out of the house. SM is at work left at 5:30am. Shelley and the kids left about 6:45am (on a Sunday) to go to the International Balloon Museum here in Albuquerque. The sweetheart balloon festivities are today and they've gone for watching, and perhaps getting a hot air balloon ride. Mommy has a regular customer at the restaurant who went to school with her. She and this woman were not friends in school but have struck up a friendship within the last year. The woman's husband, who put in my ceramic tile floors, owns a balloon and now there is a standing offer to "come take a ride with us". How exciting is that?
Last night the Mommy and kids went to the Ringling Bros. Barnum and Bailey Circus. I thought of you RV Linda, getting to see all the circus things in your travels. I still haven't talked to the kids because they came in after I had gone to bed last night, but I should imagine a good time was had by all.....well maybe the kids more than Mom. Shelley is afraid of clowns.
It's all my fault, I guess. When she was little I wanted her to see everything fun there was to see and took her to all the circus' that came to town. I always loved the little ones that set up in the parking lots of the big shopping centers. The ones with only a few people to do all the jobs. The clowns were always up close and personal and sat right next to you at the circus. Or maybe it was the Bicentennial Circus where a clown came up into the stands and got Shelley and took her down to the performance floor for her to ride on an elephant in the closing parade. Whatever it was, she has since she was 5 been scared of people in makeup as clowns or those costumey mascots for restaurants, or shows or whatever. Poor baby.
Well they've come home now and I can hardly wait to here of the adventures of the balloons and circus. See ya later and Happy Sunday.
