Skagit Valley Tulip Festival "“ April 2011

Cara’s Mom and Grama spent Easter weekend in Seattle, and part of their whirlwind tour was a morning in the tulip fields with Josh, Cara and I. It was an incredible sunny day (one of the few we’ve had this spring) and the five of us talked and laughed and enjoyed the rural Skagit Valley scenery together before settling down for a country breakfast at The Farmhouse.

Skagit Valley Tulip Festival – May 2009

It’s starting to seem a little like spring around here, but if it still feels like winter where you’re at maybe a zillion blooming tulips will convince you otherwise. Mom, Dad, Danielle and I toured the Skagit Valley tulip fields when Mom and Dad were in town last. It was pretty amazing (and thanks to Claritin, enjoyable). Check out my pictures for yourself, below. The closeups are my favorites but I left a lot of the wide shots in just to capture how many zillions of tulips there really are out there.
