Thanksgiving Point Tulip Festival 2010

Every year at this time, I see the billboard while driving down the freeway. And every year, I always say I am going to go to the Tulip Festival at Thanksgiving Point. Well I finally made it this year! We were treated to a visit by my Uncle Glen {my mom's brother} and his wife, Laurel. So it was the 2 of them, Peyton and myself, my mom, and Lindsi {my sister-in-law} and her daughter Malia. The park is really pretty. It's massive. I had no idea that it wasn't directly connected to Thanksgiving Point. But it is down the road a ways. At the same time was the Dutch Festival, so the park was busy. A lot of people were there. I got some pretty cute pictures of the girls! I also got a some pictures of the beautiful flowers. I admit there weren't as many as I expected in my head, so I was a little disapointed, but the park itself is really pretty, so I didn't mind. Oh, and because the weather was actually nice this year and not freezing like it has been in the years past, I got a little color even! It's pretty much already gone, but this is pretty good for me.
If you have never gone, make it a point to go! It's a really beautiful park!
I think the picture above is my favorite from that day.

This is my mom's brother, Glen and my cutest niece, Malia. {She's my only niece, but she is so cute!!!!}

Peyton came up with the little pose above on her own. She went and sat back to back with Malia and then turned around with that cute look on her face! It was pretty funny. We got a good laugh at it!

Anything her big cousin, Malia did, Peyton was sure to follow!

The Italian Gardens were absolutely beautiful! I want that fountain in my back yard :D. {It would be really hard because I have a town home!}
Isn't this picture so cute!
There was such a large variety of tulips through out the whole park.

This fountain was Peyton's favorite part of the whole park! She was soaking wet when I was finally able to get her away from it!

This is only a small portion of the pictures I took. I thought they turned out pretty good for my old point and shoot. I can't wait to scrapbook them.
