Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?

TIE DYE and Slumber Parites, a mix that can never go wrong!!!!

Yes! I have been dying to do this for ages now and I'm pretty sure I have a new glow about my presence and it is all due to my accomplishment of the infamous tie dye. Myself and the corner house gals; Summer, aka 'fin,' Brit, aka 'asain,' and Sara, aka 'poncho.' I do indeed love these gals. They are funny little buggers and quite odd, hence we get along marvelously. Fin and myself had this slumber party planned for months now, and due to disloyalty to the cause and utter procrastination it has taken us til now to finally pull through. Truth be told, none of us had ever really done this before. Besides my occasional dabbling in Jackson Pollock like drippings, my art history leaves somewhat to be desired. So, we made up our own instructions and decided we were as smart as any ol Michaels supplier. The highlight was most definitely the making of 'the traveling shirt,' as you will see. But, the rest of the party consisted of sing-a-longs performed by Leonard, aka leah, infamous Office episodes ("Heyyyyyy Oscar meyer weener.....lover!"-Michael Scott), binging on questionably dated junk food, and talking to the wee hours of the morn. In the morning we woke up to unveil our artistic genius from the night before. Like Michaelangelo unveiling the sistine chapel we pulled out our shirts and let them bask in the sun like an array of sun-kissed rainbows! Lets be honest, my shirt turned out the best, its just a fact.

Step 1: The Process

I was really happy to see Lenny, she had no intentions of being social and the ol boy pulled through!

Step 2: The Unveiling (and a pic of why we call Brit 'Asian)

First pic is of the 'traveling shirt.' We all contributed, too bad you cant see ponchos elephant on the back, but we all have to wear to atleast on church meeting and then pass it along.

This second little beaut is mine, she's gorgeous and I just wish I had another prom to go to!

So, my friend Corey and his fam have a cabin up somewhere past Kamas. It was a lot of fun. His dad, who likes to be called Zeke (heaven knows why, he's pictured) catered, catered, catered. Tons of food, cheesy spiritual lessons, games. Did I mention his motto is "Mi Casa Es Su Casa?" Exactly how I like it. It made me SO home-sick for kolob. Their cabin was fun and quaint, but it didn't hold a light to the infamous Blue Springs. One of my favorite, of the many, facets to this cabin was the 'Rocketman' toilet. Remember in the movie when he goes to the bathroom and loses his lucky coin in the blue gunk...? And when it flushes it sounds similar to a replay of Will Smith's legendary Independance Day. Yes dear friends, they had a toilet nearly identical. Had I not already gotten all of the pee out of me I would have made a mess of myself the first time I flushed that lil' bugger. We also went down the biggest hill of my sledding career. And yes, I consider myself an evil Kanevil (sp?) protege when it comes to sledding. Mathew and Ty would have loved to see me shoved down that glacial mountain to my assured death. It was fun, but dejected, broken Lenny and Matt went down the hill and recieved nothing but heart-ache as a result. It did beat you up pretty bad. One of the pics is them directly after their run down satan's slip-n-slide. OH, and my most esteemed photo is that of the nudist colony that exists right in the outskirts of Kamas. Yes, I plan on running for mayor in 2010! I can see it now, "Vote for A Rash in Your Nudist Colony Today!"
