Elizabeth was finally going to take all of her kids to the circus; this meant her human kids AND her goats. Elizabeth had told her mother she had this plan, her mother shook her head, saying, "Big mistake, Elizabeth, big mistake..." The children had been asking and begging for weeks, Elizabeth was determined. She loaded the children in a wagon, hitched up the goats to pull it and away they all went.
The family arrived after the show had begun. They could hear the laughter, hoots and hollers, music and gaiety from within the colorful tent. The elephant act, featuring the elephant trainer, Madame Robin were doing amazing feats. One elephant stood on its head, another balanced on a ball while wearing a clown costume. One elephant sat on a drum so hard, it broke the drum, which startled the pacaderm behind it who was holding up Madam Robin. The sound startled the elephant, causing Robin to fall off.
Now, a sudden rainstorm begins! In the midst of the confusion the elephant brigade breaks down the gates and all of the elephants run out of the tent and into the rain. The Giraffe wrangler rescues Madam Robin, hoisting her up on one of the giraffes, Robin waves at Elizabeth and her clan who are caught in the rainstorm.
Elizabeth is now sensing the mayhem, gathers her children and turns around, heading for her mother's house. Unfortunately the elephant brigade decides to follow the family to grandma's house. "I can hear mother already," Elizabeth is thinking. Elizabeth, her children, her goats AND a herd of elephants are in grandma's front yard.
Grandma just raises her eyebrows and simply says, "Listen to grandma..." as she gathers her grandkids and shakes her head at the elephants stopping around her front yard. Grandma is thinking, "How am I going to feed all of these elephants?"
