Tulip Festival

The month of April is a crazy one for our family!  It's full of anniversaries (both happy and sad), work, gardening, spring cleaning, and just generalized busy-ness.
One of the things that we make sure to do in the month of April is to visit the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival.  It's a family tradition for us, and in the last 14 years, we've only missed 2 years.  Tulips are one of our favorite flowers, and we love going and looking at all of the different varieties that there are.  It's gorgeous to just drive and look at the acres and acres of tulip fields.  There is a display garden that we walk through as well, and it never disappoints.  Even though we probably picked the stormiest day to go, we were still able to get some decent pictures.  Hubby got even better pictures than I did (I'll be the first to admit he's AMAZING, even if I'm slightly biased about it), but that won't stop me from showing off some of the ones that I got!
Enjoy the beautiful flowers.  I'll be back soon with some crafty projects and some recipes.  I've tried some pretty good ones lately!
