Festival of Craziness!
I get excited at the end of March. 1- because it is FINALLY spring (although right now it might as well still be January with the weather we have been having) 2- because it is time for the Festival of Colors at the Hare Krishna Temple in Spanish Fork. Thankfully it was a nice day that day (we got a one day break from the snow).
This was my 3rd year going and I love it. There is something about getting dirty that is fun. Out of the 3 times that I have gone, this was the most crowded by far that I have ever seen it. There were thousands! So you can only imagine with that many people, what it would be like when they all started throwing color. Brent and I had both been before, so we learned from our past years and came prepared with goggles and dust masks! I can't tell you what a difference it made. It was awesome. It was also a lot of fun because our friends Nicole and Nate came with us. It was their first time, so they were excited and we gave them some tips and brought some masks for them. I wish I would have gotten some before pictures, but I will just tell you that my shirt used to be black. It takes a while to clean up, but it is worth it. Can't wait for next year!
