Today was unbelievably glorious

Last year we didn't make it to the tulip festival at Thanksgiving Point. We had a warm spring and by the time Mother's Day was upon us (when we usually went), the tulips were gone.

Never would I make that mistake again. Thanksgiving Point's tulip festival is one of my favorite things ever forever and always.
And after a chilly spring, the weather turned DIVINE over the last few days and we broke out the shorts for the first time.
And the vintage dresses.
This photo? Straight off the camera. I almost decreased the saturation because with the full sun, it was just so bright! But how could I? I looked magical in person.
James spotted the hillside of color and said "look at that beautiful rainbow!"
Juliet practiced her standing.
And her walking.

James was just as obsessed with this bridge as the last time we were here (and I just realized he's wearing the same shorts both times!).
I think a professional photographer was using this tiny bench as a prop, and left it behind for a moment. Ha! I spotted it faster than an owl spots a mouse.
We quickly plunked both kiddos on the tiny bench and Daddy got right to work getting them to smile.

I really really love tulips. Even more photos below.
Every year I say the same thing, it looked like a fairytale. Magical.

Happy spring!
And in case you forgot what we are here to see, Juliet will remind you. "Dat!"
