Tulip Festival in Skagit Valley, April 2013 with Timna and boys

On on overcast April 19 Timna, Jonah, Zekey and I went to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, about an hour north of Seattle.  We also went two years ago, which was the first time I had gone.  Timna was the impetus for our going and it was BEAUTIFUL. The festival goes on for all of April and two places, Tulip Town and the more spectacular Roozegaarde at,  have tours with a $5 charge for adults.   Just before arriving at the tulip area, we stopped for ice cream.  Jonah got licorice ice cream, and the kiddie portions were humungous.  He finished it all and had a "Haman" mustache afterwards.  Zekey had bubble gum ice cream.  He had had cotton candy ice cream at Baskin and R the day before and it was surprisingly good, not as sweet at the bubble gum ice cream in the photos below.
I am not going to write much more.  Just enjoy the photos!

Weird color mix!

Looks like a painting, doesn't it?

Oops.  I forgot to post this!  I have printed a bunch of pictures and put them on my wall.
Here are a few more pictures.

I love the colors on the ones above and below

There were also a few daffodils, hyacinths, and other flowers on display.
The festival is held annually in April about an hour's drive north of Seattle.  Check out the website at:
