Mayfest

Each year, the preschool Allie attends holds a spring carnival/fund raiser where families can come, eat a pizza dinner, browse through a book fair, purchase treats at the bake sale, play carnival games, and hear the preschoolers sing.  Mayfest was a blast last year, and since both Allie and Zach remembered how much fun it was, they were both excited for it again this year. 

We started out the night with our pizza dinner in the gym (this year they had SLUSHIES!  The kids were sooo pumped for the slushies!) before heading around the facility to visit all the carnival games. 
Here we are at the face painting station (please excuse the fact that my children were running around the carnival with cheddar sun-chips smeared all over their faces): 
We also saw Clifford wandering around.  Since it isn't everyday that you can pose with a life-size red dog, we made sure to get a photo with him. 
The inflatable bounce house was a HUGE hit with all the kids.  This picture of Zach jumping cracks me up! 

Since Allie's class is the oldest age group, we had to wait to hear her sing last.  So, by the time 7:00 rolled around, everyone was pretty tired.  Although, Allie seemed to have consumed enough cotton candy to get her through the program with a smile on her face. 
Aack!  When did my Allie-Babe turn into a little girl?! 
The songs this year were fabulous.  I always love watching the kids sing and do their motions.  Allie had been practicing at home for weeks, so we already knew the majority of the songs.  If Zach hadn't been so crabby at this point, I'm sure he could have sang right along with them. 



Here's Allie's plate she made this year.  She said she drew a picture of our whole family at Minocqua riding on Grandpa's boat.  Hmmm....maybe someone is a little excited for vacation already ?!
I can't believe that Allie will be a KINDERGARTNER next year!  I'm sure we will have just as much fun watching her programs at the grade school.  And, we'll even get to go to Mayfest again next year, but this time to see Zach sing because he is going to be a PRESCHOOLER!
