CoLoR fEsTiVaL 2010!!

Every year at the Hindu Temple in Spanish Fork, there is a Color Festival where they throw chalk in the air and it is just a big party. I had never been to it, but I had seen pictures of friends that had and I was always really jealous of those that got to go. So I decided that I would go this year and it was......well....interesting. A big group of us went down and I was really excited, little did I know what was about to happen.

Let me explain this process to you.....there are 2 sessions of the Color Festival, one at 12pm and one at 4pm. So the people that went at 12 already were covered head to toe in chalk and still had some that they would throw on people. I thought that you would only throw the chalk when they said, "ok, go!" but I was wrong. People throw it on you whenever, wherever, and with however much they want. You can just be walking and BAMMM! chalk is thrown in your eyes, mouth,

Here is a BEFORE picture....if only I knew what I was getting into!

Here are some pictures before the said, "Ok, go!" These are just pictures of chalk that was thrown on us as we were walking around the temple.

And here are some pictures of us walking back to our cars.....covered in chalk is an understatement. It was in between my toes, but I HAD SHOES AND SOCKS ON!!!!

I had a fun time with friends and seeing what this was all about....however, I am in no way counting down the days until the next Color Festival. I was in the shower for 45 mins and had chalk and color in places that it does not belong! I had a good time, but it was one of those things I will only do once.

Raging Waters is About to Open!!

So it is almost that time of the year when the stress comes, sleepless nights, longest days, and crazy hours.....YEP!! Raging Waters is about to open. For those of you who don't know, my parents own Raging Waters Water Park in SLC. I have worked there every summer since I was 9 except for last summer when I was a nanny. It is a great place to work; although it causes an immense amount of stress with wondering what the weather will be like every day and if employees will show up so that we can open the park, it is a great business and we are very blessed to have it in our lives. Here is the link to the page , all the hours, dates, and prices are listed there. It is a GREAT place to have a company party and so if any of you are interested in bring your company, family, birthday party, or any group, all of the information is listed on the website!!
