every year there is a tulip festival, when the tulips are all out. this was our first year, and they were beautiful...the girls loved the flowers...while carly picked a few and admired their beauty, cierra crushed every one she could get her hand on & played in the mud! it looks like a great day but we caught the flowers in between rain & hail which was going on just a half hour before! we are learning in oregon (yes, it took some time) that life cant stop for the rain, just put on some rain boots and jackets and go anyways. glad we did!
