Tulip Adventures April 14, 2013

Filed under: Family Time,Recollections — Amy Scott @ 2:44 pm

Yesterday was an adventure. Jeremy, Toby and I hopped in the car for a long drive to see fields upon fields of tulips. Now tulips happen to be one of my favorite flowers, but this was also special because as a kid I would spend my spring breaks visiting family and seeing these same fields of tulips. Visiting the Tulip Festival was always a happy childhood memory for me and every year Jeremy and I talk about heading up for it. This year we finally decided to make it happen. In hindsight, we should have probably gone on a better day weather-wise, not on a weekend and not with the dog. Toby was very good, but we didn’t stop at any of the show gardens because we didn’t want to leave him parked in a very full parking lot barking his head off. He is a great rider, but he doesn’t like to be left alone. We ended up doing a driving tour of most of the fields. We got out to take a few pictures at one field. Oh my – the mud was deep! Good thing we packed our boots! Our stop at the tulip field was short because an angry sheriff was yelling at people who had parked too close to the road. Our vehicle was parked fine, but we didn’t want to take any chances with this guy so we got back in the car as quick as we could. It was a nice break in the weather at the that point and we were able to get a few pictures up close. I thought I would share a few pictures from our day trip with you! Enjoy!
