Tiptoeing through the tulips

Wednesday, April 15, 2015

Springtime in the Pacific Northwest can be difficult to judge. One minute it will be sunny and the next there will be a downpour. Since it rains all throughout the winter and for much of the spring, any sunny or just dry day is a day to take advantage of and get outside. So that is exactly what Dan and I did last weekend.

One of our favorite spring time traditions is to attend the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival. There is so much to do, and every year they add even more. From a 4 acre event garden to 40 acres of tulip fields, there are activities for everyone to enjoy, especially me and my camera! The festival length varies from year to year depending on the growing season and the weather. This year the tulips were in full bloom early than normal, so we made sure to make it out to the festival before we missed out! But don't worry, there's still plenty of time to make it out to Woodburn for some photos, children's games and a fun spring day! The festival runs until May 3rd this year.

Here are some of my favorites from this year's trip: 










And here are some of my favorite photos from past trips to the festival:
