It seems as though every day I’m discovering something new about the DMV (DC, Maryland, Virginia). There is so much to see here that I just can’t keep up. I’ve got two posts after this one of great places to see while here; and if you check the tab up top you can see all the posts so far about our adventures here.
I’m particularly excited about this one because, honestly, who doesn’t love a circus. Telling you about this one is also fun because I get to pass on a great discount for all my military peeps out there (There is also a similar student discount!).

I’ve been to the circus once, and the kids went to the circus while the hubby and I were on our Babymoon. I can’t wait to attend with the kids, and experience the fun of the circus together. Check out some of these cool acts, and the Ringmaster.
Here’s the 411 on the discount:
