We spent the day in a rural area, yesterday, walking in the sunshine and fresh country air within sight of Mt. Hood, at the Wooden Shoe Tulip Fest near Woodburn.  It took about 45 minutes for us to get there with Ingrid and her cousin, Madeline, in tow.  We arrived to 40 acres of stunning beauty, expansive vineyard views, the aforementioned distant mountains and the occasional mud puddle.  The main feature….the GREAT thing about going, was the color.  The long strips of brilliant blooming tulips were breathtaking.

I have never seen Ingrid have so much fun, ever.  She was wildly enthusiastic about the whole experience, which made John and I feel great.  We love to make our little sweetie happy!
