A Trip to the Tulip Field and Down Memory Lane

This is Lester blogging today. It has been awhile since we have blogged, so I thought I would do a short blog about our trip to the Tulip Festival in Woodburn.

Dimit Family 2009

It is a family tradition to go to the Tulip Festival each year, and each year it gets bigger and better. Although it was cold and cloudy today, we didn't get rained on. The tulips are in full bloom and were spectacular. The kids got to take a ride on an old steam powered tractor, which was the highlight of their visit. I was able to shoot dozens of pictures of Elizabeth, the kids, and the beautiful flowers. My favorite part of the visit each year is taking the kids' picture in the wooden shoe. I take their picture every year in the wooden shoe and it brings back a lot of great memories each year as I see them grow up.

Below are the wooden shoe pictures for this year. As an added bonus, I have also included a picture of the 1st year Alexis and Brandon came to the Tulip Festival (they were about 4 months old).
