Being a daughter of a Shriner (Past-Potentate to be more snoody about it)...The Shrine Circus was a must every year for our family. I hope its a tradition with our kids as well. Aunt Laura and Uncle B came with, which was nice to corner Ellie in up top. She loved it. Not scared of anything, she would even squeal and would run up to the clowns. My Dad brought his motorcycle and rode with the MotorCore...this was the only thing that confused and kinda scared Ellie. Why was papa wearing a weird hat?
