life really is a picnic for Sarah Palin this wknd. shes got 3 in 3 days, all leading up to her resignation sunday...heading to wasilla now.Palin made a stop at a wasilla picnic tonight and ppl couldnt get enough of her. Side note: the mountains there are amazing!
Palin told her hometown she loves them, thanked them. Sort of emotional at times–it was her last public event in Wasilla as governor.
