I've wanted to visit the Tulip Festival every year, but I never seem to make it! It was looking to be a nice weekend weather wise and no races that I wanted to go to so I decided it would be the perfect day. Campbell and I left at about 10:30 and met my sisters and Grandma and we rode up to Mount Vernon together. We stopped and had lunch at Olive Garden (Imagine that!) and then we headed to the fields. We stopped at the "Pickle Barn" first, as they were supposed to have children's crafts and live music but they had neither so we moved on to the fields. We stopped at an independent one first and I was already amazed at how pretty it was.
Our next stop was to Tulip Town. We pulled in and I was stunned. It was absolutely gorgeous! There is just something about seeing a whole field of different colored tulips that just excites me. Tulips have always been my favorite flower, I think because they are just so simple. I couldn't wait to get in there. We looked through the little shops they had and then Campbell wanted to get ice cream so we all did. After that, we walked outside and just started walking through all the tulips. Row after row of beautiful tulips that seemed to just get more beautiful with each row. We took several pictures! There are so many ideas I could think of to do cute poses. Engagement pics, family photos, senior portraits, baby pics..pretty much occasion would work.
Here are some of my pics, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and I can't wait until next year!
