The Culpepper and Merriweather Circus came to Baldwin City this summer!  It was small, about what you'd expect for a circus setting up in the Baldwin High School parking lot.  But it had most of the requisite things.
Two sleepy tigers and an apathetic lion:

A horse:


Cotton candy:

And this laugh???
This laugh was reserved for DJ the Clown.  Cooper could not get enough of him and his slapstick comedy numbers.  Coop laughed like he was getting paid for it when DJ tripped and fell over the tent ropes.  He re-enacted (for days!) the number where DJ smacked himself in the head with a giant fly swatter.  And he giggled with abandonment when DJ spilled fake spaghetti all over the audience.  Good grief.
