We made a trip to a local Dutch community yesterday that has a tulip festival every year. The festival isn't for a couple weeks, but it's been so uncommonly warm that the tulips are at their peak now so we decided on a whim to take the afternoon and head down their with my hubby's parents. It was a fun and beautiful day! 
Here are a few pictures:
Getting ready.....

 ...and "cheese!"
 Smelling the tulips!

 The original fire station from the late 1800's!

 Dutch letters. Pastry rolls stuffed with almond paste. A local tradition and super yummy!
Whenever we go places Hubby always likes to try the local specials and hole-in-the-wall places. I like to do that too, so it works out great! :)

More smelling!

Notice Hubby's death grip on the shirt. C tried to jump in several times.

 I just love these pictures of C holding onto Hubby's hand. ::heartexplosion::
