Cirque Du Soleil: Quidam

Chris took me to see Cirque Du Soleil: Quidam in Kansas City. It was a great show and definitely lived up to my expectations; I’ve been wanting to go for a long time! It was a fun night with quite a bit of crowd interaction where they brought people up on stage for funny skits.

My favorite parts were all the aerial acts. In the part pictured below  there was a person on each rope being spun very fast! In other scenes they did aerial silk and hoop acts. They can do such amazing things and are up so high; its very impressive!

Here we are enjoying the aerial swing and also a very tough balancing act.

So glad you liked it! We loved the one we went too!


Happy New Year everyone! It snowed here almost all day On New Year’s Eve. In the afternoon Chita and I played in the snow with her new Christmas tree squeaky toy from Allie. Chris was shoveling off the back porch and would toss the shovels of snow at Chita. It was pretty funny!

It looks nothing like that here!! Chita needs a fuzzy hat, too!

Maybe Chita will get a sweater from Santa next year!
