Children's Parade

The float
 This year our primary decided to make Noah's ark for our "float" and all the kids were supposed to dress as animals on the ark. The night before this, we went and saw the fireworks in Bountiful and didn't get to bed till after 1:00 in the morning. so getting up, getting painted faces and getting dressed was a little difficult  for all of us. We were asked to be there by 9:00 and I was asked to paint the primary kids faces who didn't come as an animal or needed something to add to their costume.
Jake and Lily waiting to start the parade
 Lily was my little bumble bee. She let me paint a bee on her cheek.
 Jake let me paint his whole face! Needless to say, I was SUPER excited to paint a tiger. He loved the teeth.

 Tyler insisted on making his own costume. He was absolutely sure that none of the kids would try to be an elephant. He was right.  I was so disappointed he wouldn't let me paint him to look like an elephant. Oh well.I think he did a pretty amazing job though.


It was really hot, but we had fun watching all the wards in the stake with their primary kids rolling down the road. It is a fun Tooele tradition.
