Preschool Dress-up day

Now that preschool is over I getting around to posting these. They had a week of "circus" stuff and one of the days was a dress-up day. This is one of the harder dress-up days because unless you have a little girl in dance there are not really clothes that fit the theme that are likely to already be in your closet.
So one day Andy went as the ringmaster wearing his dress shirt, daddy's bow tie and a mustache added with my eye liner. The other dress-up day I went to a local costume shop and found $1 masks. Due to the fact that I did not want to drag the children in to the store (which had TONS of stuff everywhere) and I did not want fighting over which animal they were going to be I forced all of them to be circus ponies. However, they all had a great time with the circus pony masks and the mean mommy was forgiven.

Museum fun

A museum near my in-laws had an animatronics (no idea how to spell this....) dinosaur exhibit. The kids were a little wary at first but quickly got over any concerns.
