Last weekend the was the Festival of color down in Spanish Fork. I’ve always wanted to go, but seem to miss it every year. I always see the pictures and go- dang it, I missed it again!
But this year I found out the date early and made plans to head down. Mr. TT and the older boys went camping, so the girls, Baby Boy and I headed down! We invited Jesseca from One Sweet Appetite brought her little guy and we had a BLAST together! We started out all white…
And started getting colored right away. I love this face Baby Boy makes, his shocked, hands over his mouth face. Seriously, one of my favorites. He actually LOVED getting colored!
He wasn’t bothered by the chalk and had a ball having chalk fights with his sisters AND strangers!
He loved THROWING it too, he’s getting Jess here…
Princess would only throw the pink chalk, not really surprising. She started out with googles, and a bandana over her mouth, but by the end of the day she had taken both off (we were worried about the chalk stinking the kids eyes)
I was worried about my camera getting destroyed with all the chalk in the air so I bought this waterproof DSLR case to use. BUT it’s a bit bulky and when I was switching to video I accidently switched from manual to effects… BOO I ended up with half my pictures from the festival in BLACK AND WHITE, including the full chalk tossing!!!
but even in black and white the kids look great!
The chalk hangs in the air quite a bit, but look how pretty the temple looks! The festival doesn’t allow smoking, drugs or alchol, so it was a GREAT event, and fun for families as well as the crazy college kids!
Baby Boy didn’t seem to mind the taste of the chalk either, but it def has a funky taste. And doesn’t Jesseca look lovely? Even covered in chalk?
I still can’t believe I missed this moment, the chalk throw (they do it every 2 hours) because of my stupid mistake!!! It was really lovely though, and we all had a great time!
We wore out Baby Boy, seriously could be he any cuter??? And somehow I ended up with lots of ORANGE, not really my color, makes me look a little oompa loompa ish…
We loved tossing our chalk!!!
The Reader stuck with the purple, her goal being to dye her hair purple… Didn’t work, washed right out. Where Princess ended up a rainbow!
Jesseca and her little boy stayed pretty darn clean IMO.
And we spend a lot of time together but usually forget to take pictures (because we’re both usually BEHIND the camera) so a rare shot of the two of us!
