We went to the Tulip Festival! We've lived in the state for 35 years and had never been. It was a good time to check it out. Since we were over visiting anyway, we drove over to the tulips. By some miracle, there was no traffic and no rain. I hear this is not always the case. We went late in the evening so maybe that was partly why. Plus, the tulips bloomed early this year and maybe people were not aware of that fact.
We mostly posed by the many beautiful tulips.
The red, white, and blue was a fun display.
The daffodils were almost done. We got there just in time!
The mud was the kids favorite part. We all wore our boots so there were no problems!
They thought the flowers were pretty, but the mud trumped the flowers.
The kids wanted pictures in front of every color of tulip.
Here are the red.
It was a great evening. It wasn't even cold! There were low clouds, but no rain!
The red and yellow tulips.

Purple shirt, purple purse, purple tulips. It was a bit overkill.

The yellow tulips.
They almost look 3D in this picture!
Nathan took this picture!
There was a beautiful garden with all kinds of tulips and other spring flowers.
It was a really fun visit! I'm glad we went! It will probably be the only time we ever go, but it was worth it to go once!
