Try your skill at the dart throwing booth. The darts are sharp, balloons are thin, it’s a sure win! (Flora literally “steps up” to increase the odds of winning).

Roll a ball, knock them all down -  a prize for each boy and girl!pics 263

Pick a duck, every one is a winner! So easy a child can do it – in this case, the very young child.

Is the hand really quicker than the eye? Find out in a quick game of guessing – if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again!

A circus rolled into one act – Ivy is walking a “tightrope” in “clown shoes” while take a peanut in a spoon to feed the 296

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, may I present to you an original act by Mr. Stripes the clown!

And now, please direct your attention to the center ring where Mr. Stripes will blow out a ring of fire as part of the tiger act! Curly girly will charm the crowd with her birthday song routine. pics 317 

As a grand finale, Mr. Stripes will make a stupendous dive face first into a chocolate cake!

And so concludes the Greatest Show on Greenleaf Lane! Come back next year!

    This is priceless. So clever and creative!!! I can’t believe Lance is 6. He is getting so old. We have got to take a trip and come see ya’ll once I heal all the way. Take care. Such fun.
