Cirque Du Soleil Saltimbanko

We went to see the Cirque Du Soleil show Saltimbanko. It is one of their traveling shows and it was pretty good! My parents were able to see it with us, as they are in town for a visit. It was fun to hear my mom shriek and gasp. I'm glad I wasn't sitting next to her, I'm sure she was grabbing Jonathan's knees or squeezing Raeley's arm!
My first two shows to see with Cirque Du Soleil (pronounced Cirk du so-lay) were in Vegas, so I knew it wouldn't beat that. For the price, it was without a doubt, a great treat.
We have talked about Cirque Du Soleil with the kids so much that they were excited to finally get to experience it for themselves: the amazement of the human body, the fortitude of strength, the creativity.
There is great beauty in the lines, form, synchronization, and costume. We laughed, gasped, sighed, and clinched our teeth in anxious suspense - particularly at watching someone hang from the feet of another human being while swinging way above our heads! And there was not one word of English spoken! It was an inspiring experience.

This is a picture of Cameron in 2006 when we were in the Cirque Du Soleil store in Downtown Disney. Cirque Du Soleil does an imagination good!
