The kids had Friday off from school and we had planned to leave as soon as I got off of work. It didn't quite happen that way. Brian missed our first two trips to the tulip festival - the first because he was at the Police Academy and the second because a big case came up at the last minute and he had to be there to serve the search warrant. What are the odds that another big case will come up and another search warrant will have to be served on the day we're planning on going? And in our little town, where hardly anything happens? But of course, that would be the case. This year we stuck it out and hoped he would get off in time to go with us. Thankfully he finally did and we were on our way.
The weather was gorgeous and we really loved walking around the tulips.
I took pics of the kids with their favorite tulip.
Then we went to the kids favorite part... the rubber ducky races! (Bear with me ... I couldn't decide if I like color or black and white, so I'm postin both.)
We spent about an hour and a half here and while it wasn't as beautiful as in previous years, it was nonetheless gorgeous!
