This is the post that should have the most gorgeous photos of the year as we spent the day at the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. However, none of the pictures turned out (moving children, wrong setting, chasing after a runaway, etc).
The first picture is a hint what a carful of kids looks like. Here, we have 5 girls, ages 10 months to 2.5 years, plus me and Elizabeth, Hannah and Sarah’s mother. Aubrey came along, too, to play with her friends.
Here’s a badly exposed picture of Piper in front of the tulips. When I went two years ago, I got some darling photos of Kyla sitting (because she couldn’t toddle yet) in front of rows and rows of tulips. This year, well, first of all, Kyla had worked herself into long-term detention in the backpack and Piper wasn’t about to sit still for the oh-so-slow camera and there were two other cats, um, toddlers to herd. Phew, another adventure completed.
