Alexander Lacey was born into a family of trainers. His father began training animals at their zoo and his mother worked with white tigers in her own show. He started helping his father with the animals at their zoo when he was only 7 years old. By the time he was 14 he had started working with the big cats. While he was away at boarding school he would count the days for school holidays to return home and work with the animals again. He took his own show on the road for the first time when he was 21 years old.
After our introduction to the cats we were introduced to the King Charles Troupe (KCT). They are a group of athletes who play basketball while riding unicycles. These folks are truly amazing and talented. One of their members showed us how he could jump rope while still on his cycle, before showing us how he could do that while two others added two more ropes to the routine. Amazing!
Joseph was entranced by the entire morning. We truly enjoyed our visit with these amazing people who work hard to entertain the audience.
Until next time my friends, love your kids,
