What a glorious day for it. The tulips were so incredibly beautiful. I was there at around 11:00 a.m., and so the sun was almost directly overhead. It made for great photography because the tulips looked as if they were lit from within. But I'm just going to stop talking about it and show you the pictures. You can see for yourself.
Want to see even more tulips? You can see more images from my previous visit back in 2012. I didn't realize it had been so long since I'd visited the tulip festival. It's always a treat. I might have to start going more often. So...more tulips for you. Enjoy!
And as a bonus treat for April 2nd, Happy Birthday to my son, Matthew, who is 32 years old today. He's my youngest, so do the math: I was only 8 years old when he was born! I know! Amazing! But take a look at that beautiful face and fall in love, just as I did, so many years ago. Here's a little compendium of Matthew through the years:
Minutes Old...he wasn't happy about that pink blanket

Happy Birthday, Sweety. Live long and prosper, because I have plans for you in my old age.
