"A young boy attempts to find his location after clearing his goggles in the foam at Foam Day in Lehi, Saturday, July 24, 2010. In its second year, Foam Day is a new annual event where firefighters create a field full of nontoxic foam for families to play in."

I worked the holiday last weekend.

What holiday? I had the same question.

Apparently the state of Utah shuts down for "Pioneer Day." You can read a "factual" Wiki entry about it here.

Between my two assignments, which were Pioneer Day related, I had about five hours to burn.

I heard about this Foam Day event in Lehi (the one Lance Booth, our former intern, shot last year), so I figured I’d take initiative and venture over to make some more art for the paper.

Well, for about 24-hours I smelled of soap, my eyes were red and burning.

Not to mention, I am surprised my phone still works, my wallet took a day to dry out, I ruined a perfectly good note pad, my shoes, socks and clothes were drenched (and soapy), and on top of that, had no idea what I was shooting (or seeing out of my own eyes for that matter).

But I had a blast.
