Cirque Shanghai

"Mommy, they're not being safe."

Aside from Z's concern for the well-being of the Chinese acrobats in Navy Pier's Cirque Shanghai, we had a great time. It is an amazing show. It's hard to believe I struggle to pull of ten traditional pushups when these rubber-limbed performers can stand on one hand and spin their entire bodies--while balancing on top of 8 chairs--that are held up by another performer's neck!

Here's a shot of some amazing saucer spinning.

If you haven't seen the show yet, hurry! It closes September 1st.
