A List Maker's Life: Tip Toe Into Spring

Tip Toe Into Spring

During the next week in our little town we welcome junk food wagons galore, artwork, concerts, craft fairs, pigs-in-a-blanket, traffic, daily parades, fireworks, evening dances, carnival rides, bleachers, blanket lined streets, wooden shoes, and adorable kids in costumes. 
But, don't miss it...
the real festival is in the rows and rows of tulips
celebrating all the colors of creation
smiling in the sunshine
 slowing down to survey the promising scene
and smelling the sweetness of spring

Thanks to Beth for encouraging me to get out and enjoy Spring with my kids and my camera!

  1. I love the costumes! If my kids were little enough, I would want to do the same thing next time we went to a tulip festival. (But my oldest is 17 and I don't think he'll cooperate.) ;)

  2. Wow! That sounds like a terrific week. And a great festival. And a ton of fun. Now, I hope there's a carnival too! :)

  3. awwww, those are fun spring pics!


    by the way I still have my wooden shoe from this festival when I was younger. They will remember and love it!

  4. Be still my heart!
    Have a wonderful time!

  5. Oh, how adorable! I wihs there was a festival like that in my area!

  6. It's Dutch pride time all over the midwest! Festivals popping up all over.

  7. Believe it or not, I grew up in MI and *gasp* I've never been to the Tulip Festival. Of course, MI is a pretty big state when you think about the UP and everything, but still...
    Your kids are so adorable in their costumes!

  8. what a special time !!!!! they look so cute!

  9. They all look adorable. I love your pictures, as always! Although I do not miss the traffic and crazy tourists that come with Tulip Time, I miss being able to wave the dutch pride flag every now and then. ;)

  10. I love these! I cannot wait until next year!
