FREX

Last week Dave and I headed to the FREX. It was the first time I'd been in ten years. FUN! We were excited to see the Wallendas high-wire act and they didn't disappoint although the fact that they do their entire act without a net made my heart race.


Bri, a twelve year old girl goes up an 80 foot sway pole and does a whole routine at the top. Thankfully, I didn't have to hold my breath and watch that since it was raining and she couldn't go up the pole.


We also caught a stage show where the highlight for us was the cat and dog show. It was dark so it's not the best picture but the dogs looked so cute walking around on their hind legs with their little tuxedo jackets.


It reminded me of the merengue dog which if you haven't seen yet you need to watch it. It is amazing and creepy all at the same time.


We ended up watching the high wire act again after dark. It looked neat under the lights. If it's possible I was even more nervous the second time around.




After the high wire show a lady shot herself out of a cannon. Seriously. Why have I not gone to the FREX in ten years? We got to see it twice and Dave managed to get it on tape. I have to say the video doesn't do it justice. She flies out of that cannon.

But I'm a bit of a homebody. Little things excite me.

I somehow forgot to mention the fact that we went on three rides and I felt nauseous afterward for six hours. I attribute it to general being an adult lameness.
