Philip Astley created the first circus in 1768 London – so we made our own circus!
We set up a tent and Baby tried snake charming (the snake being my arm in a green legging)
… riding a lion (I was the lion);
… one of her toys dared to put its head in a lion’s mouth;
…. we tried juggling and doing a clown act with an invisible car;
… we tried balancing toy elephants on a ball
… and gymnastics (Baby swinging from my hands).
For dinner we had hotdogs and toffee apple muffins.
Connecticut founded (1788): famous for Yale, ESPN, Gilmore Girls, election cake.
