We made it to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival this year and had a much better experience than last time. Two years ago we went on a beautiful, sunny Saturday... along with everyone else in the Seattle area. The unbelievable traffic made the trip less than stellar. This time Henry took a Thursday off (also to attend our Roots of Empathy classroom visit, more on that in a future post) and it was cloudy and rainy. Perfect! Forgive the picture quality, I forgot my camera, so we only had my phone - not too bad really.

|Henry needs to work a little on framing shots. At least you can see the nice mud puddle there.|
|Here's another shot of the intense mud. It was actually pretty packed down, so it wasn't too squishy. They did have signs asking you not to go between the rows. Not that I'd be tempted with all that water!|
|Oh, the carnage. Tulip massacre.|
|Geneva was more interested in the people than the flowers. Go figure.|
|My own personal tulip variety. Although our actual favorites were called "Ice Cream" and "Ninja".|
