Last weekend we took a little family road trip up north to visit the Tulip Festival. Since it was the last weekend, there were only a few tulip fields left. But this also meant that the line were short and the crowds were small! We visited Roozengaard for the first time. I had no idea that in addition to some amazing fields of tulips, they also have an incredible garden so that you can view all the different varieties of tulips that they have available. It was SOOO beautiful. We visited on a rainy day, but the sun peaked out several times. It was actually a perfect day to take photos, and I had fun breaking out my SLR for the first time in awhile.
Taking Lucy there was quite the experience. It is one thing to see something beautiful with your own eyes, and quite another to watch a little child get excited about something they have never seen before. Lucy was pretty excited by all the pretty colors. I had trouble photographing her because she was always so intently staring at the flowers.
It was an awesome, awesome day. I'm so glad we went and hope we make time every year to visit the tulip fields! I hope you enjoyed looking at my photos. I took 200+ pictures, so I did not share all of them, of course. Now, I'm signing off to enjoy this beautiful Spring day. I hear it will be over 80 degrees in Seattle today! I can't wait.
