So we had the idea to bring Alex to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. It runs through the month of April. Well, we learned a valuable lesson: Don’t go on the last weekend of the festival! Instead of fields upon fields of tulips, we saw fields upon fields of freshly plowed earth.

Luckily, I think Alex still had a good time at Roozengaarde, a visitor’s center set up by one of the flower companies. Apparently the family that owns Roozengaarde has been in the tulip business since the 1700s. While there weren’t fields upon fields of tulips, there were a few gardens full of flowers. And a windmill:

Alex liked walking around on the grass and on the gravel.

He also liked looking at the flowers. We weren’t sure at times if he wanted to eat the flowers.

And of course, I had to take lots of flower pictures. Here are two.
