Tulip Fields

Micah had some days off from work this week so we decided to go up north to Skagit County to see the tulip fields. We left Wednesday afternoon after helping a friend of ours and arrived up north in the late afternoon. When we first got to Skagit County we found a place to get a map to where the tulips are. Then we stopped at the first tulip field we found. I love the tulips, they are so beautiful with all the colors spread out like a big carpet! We walked around the field and tried to take pictures with our digital camera, and then found out our memory card had gone bad so we could not take any pictures with our camera. It was a big bummer! All those pretty tulips and no good pictures. :( Thankfully we both have cell phones that have cameras, so we were at least able to take some pictures. They just aren't the best quality. We spent an hour walking around the field enjoying the beauty of the tulips.
After our time at the field we drove around and looked at other fields, but none were as good as the first one we stopped at, and we didn't have a working camera so we didn't see any point in stopping at other fields. When we were done looking at tulips we drove to La Conner, a cute little town close to the fields. While we were driving through the town we got a call from my aunt Anna. Before we came up north we set up with her to have dinner at her place and she was going to let us spend the night at their house. So we drove over to her house, ate a yummy dinner and then went to my cousin Caleb's baseball game. He is in first grade and it was fun watching his little league game and cheering him on. My uncle Alan is one of the coaches for Caleb's team. We also got to see my aunt Joyce and visit with her at the game. Afterward we went back to Anna and Alan's house and had a great time chatting with them and eating ice cream with their family. It was fun to stay with them and see what a normal weeknight was like for their family. We also enjoyed just being with them.
On Thursday morning we drove back down south. It was a fun time for Micah and I to be together and enjoy God's beautiful creation and our family.
