varekai







































I just realized that I haven't posted about Cirque Du Soleil!

On Saturday Jarod and I drove down town and went out for dinner at the Rugby Club. they have such amazing food. For dessert I always order there earl grey ice cream. mmmm it is so good! Jarod was sick and couldn't eat, so he got his food to go. Then we drove to the big tents that they have set up for the show. We payed for parking ($15.00!!!) and also gave $4.00 to a homeless man who said he'd watch our car for a few bucks. I always feel so bad for them, and he didn't seem drugged up. (He was actually there when we came back too!)

Anyways, we walked to the entrance and saw some of the performers out playing soccer with all of their makeup on! It was cool! We bought two bottles of water and a bag of popcorn for the show and it cost us $13.00. ouch. But Jarod didn't really mind because this was our anniversary present from two years ago that we never got around to doing until now, so he felt a little guilty I think.

The performance was unbelievable!! I was on edge most of the time with my mouth wide open terrified that someone was going to fall! We weren't allowed to take pictures inside the tent though. bummer. I can't even explain how cool it was. one woman could do the splits while balancing on one hand and she could also bend back and make her head touch her bum! Talk about flexible!

So we had an amazing night and plan on going again next year. Jarod thought it was great too, so it's always a bonus (and rare) when we both really enjoy something.
