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.

Lily was my little bumble bee. She let me paint a bee on her cheek.
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.
