My sister and I have made a tradition of going up to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival for the past several years. We love all the beautiful colors, and never leave without taking some tulips home with us! This year we decided to go before all the fields were in bloom. We wanted to beat the crowds as well as see the early bloomers that we miss when we go up late in the season. It's beautiful up there and I look forward to going every year. Here are some of the pictures we took when we visited on Thursday!
