annual tulip festival

I'm just getting around to it now, but a few weeks back, we enjoyed (for our fourth year) a pleasant afternoon basking in the glorious colors at the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm's Tulip Fest.
For those who have never had the pleasure, this is a month long festival complete with the amazing fields of blossoms seen here as well as flower and bulb sales, gift shop, some third party craft booths, carnival-type food carts and various kids activities (including the beloved "Cow Train").
Naiya enjoyed the tulips as she wandered the rows with Oma but mostly couldn't wait for that cherished ride down around the fields.
If you're a local, you've still got a few weeks left for a visit.  I'd recommend week days when crowds are thinner, parking is cheaper and there is generally just less chaos.  But you've only got until the 6th of May!
There's nothing like tulips to welcome Spring.


  1. What a sight! And that cow ride looks like fun. :)

    1. I imagine now (a few weeks and a lot more sunshine later) it is even more impressive. Oh the've no idea. I think she'd ride over and over all day long if we let her. :)
