So yesterday was the Festival of Colours. A celebration of Hare Krishna, at the Krishna temple in Spanish Fork.

There was a lot of singing of this:

Hare Krishna Hare Krishna

Krishna Krishna Hare Hare

Hare Rama Hare Rama

Rama Rama Hare Hare

and dancing to go along. it was SOO Much fun!

The best part was throwing the colors. they had these bags of coloured chalk to buy that you threw after the countdown and then throughout the rest of the celebration. It was SOO much fun. The thing is to wear white.. so that is what i did.

By participating i probably somehow joined their church.. i don't even know. but all know was that i was having a goodtime.

Below you can see what the chalk throwing looked like from afar

The temple kind of looked the great and spacious building!!! haha...

Diego really was covered. his face was all green and he put an imprint in Courts shirt.. it was pretty sweet.

This is us before:
And after/during:

Yah.. we were dancing.. i got on mike's shoulders.. it was awesome

My friend Dan did his east indian dancing (he actually went to a class once and legit learned how to east indian dance)

The colors all sort of blending on my shirt.. and looked like a ugly shade of gray. but believe me it was fun, and the colors were bright and all over the place. Poor kaiti had pink in her blond hair, and it left its mark.

ON the way home we stopped at cracker barrel for dinner. we got SOO much food and it tasted SOO good. but perhaps it was just cause we were SOo hungry. Just some good home cooked food, biscuits, cornbread.. meatloaf (for some.. not me, but i thought of you dad) and i tried deep fried okra... which of course i liked cause it was deepfried

... it was just like mom used to make.

That looked like fun! That building is beautiful!

Did you have fun at church there today now that you are converted?

It looked like a huge turn out for the celebration!

I've seen alot of Cracker Barrel restaurants as we've traveled back East but have never been to one, I may have to try one now that I've read your review.

...I hope the colors have come out nicely from everything...

I am so jealous!!! I have wanted to participate in that celebration since I saw it on Amazing Race.

I think I was suppose to be Indian....

If I see you at an airport in robes and with a tambourine I'll really be worried. (That's what they did when I was young).
