Festival of Colors!

Wow, Festival of Colors was pretty much the funnest thing I have done since our "bubble wrapping Sumo-wrestling". Yesterday Kyler, Mckenna, Jamie, Adam, Hayliee, and I all drove down to Springville to attend the Sri Sri Radha Krishna Temple Color Festival! We left about 2 pm and and got down there around 4:30 pm! The traffic was horrible! But of course well worth it! We ended up parking about and Mile away! When we got there it was incredible busy we all walked in single file line holding hands trying to stay together. Some how Kyler and I ended up with Jamie while she was trying to find some more of her friends. We ended up at the front of the HUGE line to buy the powder paint so instead of having to wait in line we just bought 20 dollars worth and had everyone pay us back. When we finally meet up with Adam, Mckenna and Hayliee we when out and found a good spot where we at least had room to turn around and talk to each other. All of a sudden people started throwing their powder so all of us started to open our bags and we started to throw McKenna of course was the first one to start freaking out because the powder was in her eyes and in her nose and mouth! We couldn't see anything and then we after about 5 minutes of throwing they told us to stop throwing because they wanted everyone to throw at the same time so Kyler, McKenna, Hayliee and I held hands and started for the middle of the crowd when we got down to the middle we had only a few more minutes before they asked everyone to throw at the same. 1, 2, 3!! We all threw yellow powder at each other and in the air! No one could see! No one could breath! We hurried back up to the top of the hill and waited at the spot we promised everyone we'd meet when it was done! We took a couple of pictures and headed down to the animals there were Lamas, parrots and fish! After looking around Kyler, McKenna, Hayliee, Adam, and I walked back to the car and cleaned our selves off Adam decided to hitch hike a ride to town for reasons who knows! While we waited for Jamie and her friends to finish at the temple the rest of us drove down to a gas station to get a drink to clear our throats. We picked Jamie and Adam up and headed our way home! It was a very exciting day! It end perfectly with a kiss from Kyler!
