TULIP FESTIVAL

We had an amazing weekend! The weather was nice, we had no plans other then enjoying each others company. It was perfect

We had a bbq on Friday night with grilled steaks, baked potatoes and artichokes. And we just lounged around watching movies.


On Saturday both C and I went to the boot camp class, and then headed home and did a few things around the house. I ended up getting a nail in my tire so we took the car in to the shop to get it fixed. We had a 2 hour wait so we trekked the 2 mile round trip up to Barnes and Nobles where we sat and read magazines and books.

On Sunday we got up to almost 80 degree weather and decided to head out to the annual tulip festival!

The place was packed! But the flowers were beautiful!

Unfortunately, I didn't buy any to take home since we're leaving and I want to be able to enjoy them their entire life span, but next year!  So instead I just took a lot of pictures!

I'll just give you a few of my favorite ones...

 40 acres of fresh planted tulips. It's breath taking.

I have NO clue how they get the colors to be so vibrant. Tulips are in every single yard where we live, I guess it's because we get so many cloudy and rain filled days, tulips just love us!

Hello little lady bug! I wish I had a good macro lens....I know what I'm asking Santa to get me next year! ;)

And last but not least, and probably my favorite of all, just based purely on simplicity...

I LOVE white tulips. They are so romantic and whimsical. When I own a beach cottage I will have these babies in every room, all spring long!


I hope you all had a great weekend, too!
