Conspiracy Fest

So you may be wondering what could possibly bring such a fantastic photo about. Well, today I went to the Lavender festival in Mona, Utah, and as a part of it, there was a wild west shoot out. Overall, the acting was horrible and the guns were kind of wussy (except for the shotgun, that was awesome).

My favorite part however, was when some kid with his snow cone just walked onto set, not really caring that he was a part of the action. He just proceeded to eat his snow cone.

Here is the group that I was with: Dave, Nathaniel, Lil Emily, Mindy, Elin, (some girl whose name I didn't catch), and Danny (aka Denny).

There was cool stuff to do there like axe throwing and archery:

The worst idea was probably riding the barrel ride. In the first picture it looks like Nathaniel is having fun.

But in the second, you can tell that things are turning sour. This incident caused Nathaniel to have a headache for the rest of the day.

A Magneto-like helmet will cheer him up though.

So at the end of the day, we were thinking that the Young Living Family Farm was pretty cool. I mean, they have a wild west village plus a medieval village. Plus, kids seem to really like it. Then I took a trip inside of the visitors center. They had a bunch of health food supplement like stuff. At first I kind of just blew it off thinking that the owners are just a bunch of hippies or whatever.

Then, while I am inside I see free samples of this NingXia Red stuff (Which dave had about 8 of). The same stuff had been mentioned earlier in the wild west shoot out, but I wasn't really sure what they were talking about. Then it struck me. Young Living must be a multi-level marketing company. And it is.

Suddenly, the whole experience had changed. I felt like I was being duped...but I guess just a little bit. Because the day was still pretty fun.

Oh, it wouldn't be a lavender festival without this:

Mmm. Snow cone.
