(The big top sticking out from above one of their trailers)
I wish I could say that I took a ton of amazing photos, but there are no photos allowed under the big top! I can completely understand why, with the acrobatics that the performers are doing, I wouldn't want someone's flash distracting me either.
My favorite costume was the grasshopper costume. I seriously want to convince Maben to be a grasshopper for Halloween, just so I can attempt to make a knock off. He has already attempted some of the acrobatics that the grasshoppers were doing at home on our sofa.

OVO was such an amazing experience that I hope to be able to go and see more of their shows. I want to know what other crazy physics defying acrobats they can perform. Cirque du Soleil...my hats off to you and your ability to perform, inspire, captivate and never settling for anything less than great!
I was so happy that we got to go and that my friend Lex, who is a photographer, got to join us. A giant Thank You goes to Katy Parent Magazine for being so gracious and giving away tickets. Another Thank You goes to Lex for snapping a few photos for my family.
