Tiptoeing through the tulips...




Today was supposed to be a pretty rainy day, but we braved the Tulip festival up north anyway. We were lucky to avoid any major downpours, and enjoyed the afternoon with Luke and Lindsay. I'm always grateful that Shane remembers to start our family trips with a prayer, especially today when we avoided a near-accident. We almost got side-swiped by a car (on Emma's side--Yikes), but thanks to his acute driving skills (and some help from above), we were able to maneuver out of the way and up onto the curb. The guy didn't even see us until he realized he had run us off the road.

Anyway, it was overcast, but beautiful. We took lots of pictures, and by a miracle, we actually got some good family shots in. It was fun. I love the tulip festival, and I don't think I'll ever get bored of going there. :)


These red and white-tipped ones were my favorite!


My little pink tulip! She wore a little bit of pink-overkill today, but then looked so cute dancing around the pink tulips. :) How fitting for a family picture, right? Shane thought this old bus from the 50's was cool. He said he could fix it right up. On another note, we're hoping to buy an old bus someday and fix it up into a custom RV...how fun (& how weird) would that be! You should all plan to go camping with us!

What beautiful pictures! Love the vibrant colors! That old bus is really cool. Josh and Shane have the 'old car fix it up love' in common! Too cool! It would be fun to come out to Seattle during this time of the year sometime and go sightseeing with the family!

Love ya, Jen :)

How beautiful! It looks like you could be in the Netherlands! All you need is a couple of windmills in the background. The bus will just have to do!:) What a fun day!

That looks like so much fun & so beautiful! Every year I say I'm going to plant tulips so they come out in the spring & every year, I forget! But there is a tulip festival at Thanksgiving Point every year that I again keep saying I want to go to but never do. Oh well. I'll just enjoy your pictures!
