Sno-cones made of gold!

This post was delayed due to Braden being sick, but now he is better and I can tell you about our circus trip.

Tickets were purchased weeks in advance. We took the middle priced seats which were $20.00 per person.

The pre show was an hour before the show and it was wonderful. Brittney was picked to go down front for tug of war with Hercules. I really enjoyed the light show.

Of course there were people selling things everywhere. We purchsed a light toy as we were told the kids would need them to interact with part of the show. At $15.00 each we were already getting into my yard sale money I had made but oh well it was a special day and it was a souvenier they could take home.

We were going to be at the civic center a total of 3 hours. 1 hour preshow and 2 hour show so we anticipated hitting the concession stand and then planned on lunch afterwards.

The only drinks they sold were in plastic circus cups. They said you get the cup free. Well you should because are you ready for the price of a sno-cone.......

$10.00 each

Yes that is right. My hubby went and got a cotton candy, 2 snowcones, 1 lemonade, and a small bag of peanuts for a grand total of.....

$46.00.

Yes I fainted when he told me, then he had to revive me so I could enjoy the rest of the show. Needless to say that put a quick stop to the concession stand even though we did end up getting a box of $5.00 popcorn before it was over.

All in all it was a good time, an expensive good time, but still a good time. I still can't get over a $10.00 sno-cone, because face it syrup and ice is not that high so unless I see that the sno-cones are indeed made of gold and not just priced that way we will not purchase another $10.00 sno-cone.

Isn't that just nuts. Movie theaters are getting just as bad if you really think about it but any event you go to here is the same way. Its ridiculous.

That is crazy for a snow cone!! Don't know if I would buy one LOL. As for movie tickets I am lucky Hubby can get them at his work pretty cheap. He can get two ticket for the price of one usually is. We usually don't buy anything else or something small if we have to.
