I hope these photos make you want to sit back, relax, and enjoy a beautiful April day at the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival.

That's what we did, and it was a beautiful day. . . in a windy, cold, and extremely muddy kind of way. ;) But hey, it didn't rain on us!

I just love photographing gorgeous flowers!

{Isn't that bright purple and white combo delicious? I could almost eat them!}

{Love the way the raindrops cling to these tulips, you can see it if you click the photo to make it full-screen!}

The whole family!

The girls had a great time running through the daffodil fields, and I had fun chasing after them, trying to capture good photos!

I could not keep Natalie away from all those muddy rain puddles! And it would have been impossible, since they were everywhere! She had a great time in them.

Some family shots. . . the best it was going to get in all the wind and mud!

The girls also loved exploring the flower gardens, which weren't quite as muddy.

We want to go again next year, on a less-crowded, sunny, warm weekday. {Yes, they DO exist in Seattle in April, I promise!}
It was worth it though! I think we got some really cute pictures and we all had so much fun!


  1. What a beautiful place and gorgeous photos! If I were you I would be using those for desktop wallpaper for months :)

  2. I loved the purple and white ones too. They made me think of red cabbage that someone had magically turned pretty. I just finished my post on the tulip festival the other day.

  3. Beautiful! I would love to romp in a field of daffodils.

  4. I adore all these pictures!!!!! And the ones of your girls, just precious! You are an excellent photographer!

  5. Wonderful photos! And you all look so happy among those lovely flowers. Beautiful indeed! :p
