First of all, my darling little cousin Sarah got baptized and confirmed! She was so excited to become a member of the Church and I am so proud of her. The whole morning was very sweet. I got to take care of Emma, who was very excited for her sister. After the events at the church, we went back to Scott and Nancy's house for a party! It was fun to visit with my relatives that we don't get to see very often--and to catch a glimpse of sleeping Lily. We had pizza, salad, soda, and a CHOCOLATE FOUNTAIN!!!! Kyle was VERY excited for that :)
After the party, we had to get back to get some homework and various necessities done--lame, but necessary. I ended up taking a very nice nap (we were up late the night before, hanging out with Council Bluffs and Emily). Then there was a whirlwind of phone calls and planning, and we were on our way to Holi Fest! There was crazy traffic, and we had to park really really far away, but it was so fun once we got there. We met up with our friends and had a blast. Great dancing--they even did Radha Kaise Na Jale, which is one our favorite songs! Katy and I had to sing along. We sat on the hillside with our friends and reveled in the culture.
The color part was pretty intense--apparently there were about 15 thousand people there. I totally believe it.
After we went home and showered (I love the crazy colors that the water turns after Holi), Julia and Taylor and Kendall came over. The guys kept us up late with fun stories. Kyle has so much fun with his Amarillo friends, and I basically just love Julia.
I'm now suffering from post-Holi symptoms, like burning eyes and sore throat. Not cool, but worth it.
