Tulip Festival

Our evening at the tulip festival at the thanksgiving point gardens was magical. The fields of vibrant blooms were spectacular, but what made the night so incredible was that the breathtaking scenery happened to coincide with one of those rare occasions where everyone was in a delightful mood and we spent several hours just enjoying being in one anothers' company. We brought a picnic dinner to share in a secluded grassy area and then we rented a golf cart to cruise the acres of flowers on wheels. The boys were not only tolerant of my requests to take pictures, but even asked me to take pictures of them (and I happily obliged). It was a feast for the senses: rushing streams and roaring waterfalls, rolling green hills and flowers in every color combination, hanging lanterns and floating umbrellas...we took it all in in wonderment. Truly, it was one of my most favorite evenings all year.
