Tip toeing through the tulips

On Sunday we took advantage of the beyond glorious weather and went to the tulip festival! It really was something beautiful and was so nice to be out in the sunshine!

 The tulip fields just stretched on and on. It was nature lover and photography heaven!
 Noam was having more fun looking at the old tractors around the fields, though.
I eventually coaxed him into one of the rows and he had some fun inspecting the flowers (not too many tulips were harmed in the process).
 We had to pose for a picture in the big wooden shoes! Noam wasn't too sure about them, but he didn't mind me picking him up for a photo-op!
It really was a spectacular morning. The tulips were stunning, Mt. Hood was out, the temps were beyond amazing, and it was a fun 'venure!

Oh my goodness!! I have wanted to go to a tulip festival for as long as I can remember. It is so pretty. I could literally spend hours there taking pictures, maybe someday.
Thanks for sharing Tamar :)

I've only ever seen tulip fields in Holland - which were as spectacular aw you'd imagine...Love the colors! Love your shots! Might just have to plan a trip to Oregon some spring - I've only ever been at Christmas and in the summer!

Love these photos! I grew up in the middle of Tulip Festival country in Washington--I never thought it was possible to miss all of the traffic and tourists--but I do! My next trip to the tulips will be a new experience!
