Visit to the tulip farm...

We went to the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival today. The last time we went, I was pregnant with Nicholas, which was over 5 years ago. Every year we have wanted to go, or should I say "I" have wanted to go, but something always came up, anything from no free Sundays, or non stop rain. Plus, this is not something my husband likes to do. He considers it "boring",  but I told him that we haven't been in years, we can take some pretty pictures and well your wife wants to go. LOL, I don't know which did it, but he finally agreed. We beat the crowd by leaving right after breakfast, and after about an hour, we were there. It was such a beautiful day, sunny and 75 degrees. There were 40 acres of tulips, absolutely stunning.

-We met a couple at the farm with 2 young kids, they offered to take our family picture and we returned the favor. We joked  about how we have to 100 pictures in order to get 10 good ones. Very true. Most of our pictures turn out something like these two pictures-

-But, I always keep a few "out takes", because life isn't "perfect" and I want to remember everything. Even the struggle of having a two year to stand still for 5 seconds. -

-Our family- love this picture because everyone is looking in the "direction" of the camera :) -

-My darling girl-

-Can you believe this pose?? I can't stop smiling. This is my boy who hates taking pictures, I can't believe I got a smile and a head tilt :) -

-Nico worked really hard on getting this rusty tractor started, however he had no luck-

-Always running away and looking back to me to make sure I chase him, If I am not, he comes back and tries again :) -

-These tulips are huge! Almost as tall as William-

-Pink John Deere!!! I want one on my "imaginary farm"-

-Tractor ride-

-Cute dutch kids :) -

Thanks for visiting,
