Fondue and Circus

Tonight was one of my first big nights out since my injury.  I have long wanted to go to the circus but my friends are all scared of clowns and so nobody ever wanted to go. I was talking about it with my friend Lisa and it turns out she liked the circus!

So tonight we went to The Melting Pot, which I’ve also wanted to go to for a while.  There was a thing called Dino-O-Round in SLC where we got a discount.  I had never been there before and it was a fun experience .

I’d like to go there another time when I have more time and we can get the chocolate, but it was still very yummy and a great time:


After fondue we went to see the circus.

There were also trapeze artists who were amazing to watch.

I’d definitely go again if I get the opportunity. They had a live band, the colors were bright and performers engaging. All in all it was a great show!

So a very fun night on the town.  Do you guys like the circus or are you afraid of clowns?  I’m surprised how little the clowns are even in it and they were a lot of fun.  Most of it is acrobatics and animal tricks.  Very entertaining and I highly recommend it!

At the least it is fun to do something new and different every once in a while and going to the circus was definitely one of those things for me. Fun to step out of the box every now and then.

And if you are concerned about the animal care they go to pretty extreme levels to make sure they are well cared for and treated with kindness.  Not an issue for me.
