Tulip Time

This past week was tulip time in Holland.  Because my allergies have been so bad recently we didn't get out much, but we did head down town on Thursday for the parade.

I started by trying to get a picture of the kids with some tulips, but the sun was a bit bright.

There, that is better!

And here we are ready to watch the parade.  We brought the umbrella because it was suppose to start raining.  Instead we ended up using it for shade that afternoon (Michigan weather!).  We had a pretty good spot to watch this year because Tim when out early in the morning on his way to work and set out a blanket for us.  Believe it or not, he said most of the spots were already taken when he got there at 7:00 in the morning for a 2:00pm parade.

Two years ago I got the cutest pictures of Jon covering his ears for the parade.  Must be the age, because this year it was Becca.

And where is Michael you may ask?  He was marching in the parade as a little Dutchman!
