Back in September when I thought we weren't going to be in Utah for very long, I decided to sign Alyssa up for preschool anyway and I'm really glad that I did because we ended up staying the whole school year. She is my little social butterfly and loves being around other kids and hopefully she got a leg up for school next year.
I know most people take pictures of the first day of school, but I was lazy and so these are pictures from the last day of school.

Dr. Seuss's birthday
Pirate day (Alyssa is the top left with the blue eye patch)

I don't really like how her school picture turned out, but I guess I can't have perfect pictures all the time.

Tulip Festival

My mom and I took the girls to the tulip festival at Thanksgiving Point last week and it was great! It was perfect weather and the and not too crowded and the girls behaved themselves for the most part. Although Megan never felt like giving me a true smile.
Monkey see, monkey do. For some reason Alyssa decided that this was how I want her to look in all of my pictures and of course she taught Megan. I'm always telling her to relax her shoulders for pictures

There was grassy hills and tons of kids so of course everyone was rolling down the hills.
Megan couldn't do it quite right, she always rolled along the hills instead of down but she had fun and didn't care.

My girls are two hairy little monsters, I tried to pull their hair back but the just scream and put up such a stink it isn't worth it. I'm also growing out Alyssa's bangs so the problem is going to get worse before it gets better.

There was also a pond with giant gold fish to feed.
We ended our tour at the waterfalls where there was a outdoor theater and the girls ran around with kids and danced to the music for over an hour. My little social butterfly Alyssa met friends from church and some of the kids that we help at the cross walk. She also tried cotton candy for the first time.
