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!
