Tip toe through the tulips

I've been wanting to get down to Woodburn for the annual Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival weeks, but with this icky weather... the festival was even extended an extra week and but it still didn't get nice enough to really go until the very last day (well the last free day - you can still go down this weekend but pay to park or something like that). It was beautiful though... best year I remember - the blooms were perfect!
The kids all required new clothes and shoes by the time we were through - but I was prepared for that.

Even Maggy got in on the fun... I love this picture - don't the tulips look like they are 6 feet tall?!

There is a cow train ride - little buggies (all painted like cows) pulled behind a tractor through the fields, Zak, Maggy and I rode together in the front car and Hannah and Noah behind us.

This shot was taken from the ride.


  1. I so wish I could have gone with you. Thanks for the invitation, it looks like you had a great time. You're kids are lovlier than the tulips. That pic of M sitting in front of the 6 feet tulips reminds me of Alice in Wonderland. "you can learn a lot of things from the flowers, especially in the month of June..." (I love that movie and know every word by heart). Anyway. Thank you for the special delivery, today. Wish I wasn't at Winco right then. You ARE my secret admirer, right? :)
    Love ya.

  2. I admire you so...

    wish you could have come too- maybe a trip to the Oregon Gardens sometime.

  3. Such gorgeous pictures - oh, and the flowers are lovely too!


Tell me about it....
