Mothering, making, and generally blathering on

The Skagit County Tulip Festival was in fine form this past weekend—the rain even let up for a day or so. Well, an afternoon at least. Last year was our first attempt at the festival and we went on a weekday. This year, a weekend. With 7 of us in the (old model) Highlander. And a baby who can indeed scream, destroying the initial “is this baby the best baby ever or what?” impression she had given to her visiting grandparents. Let’s just say the road in and out of Mount Vernon was quite backed up and might not hold any fond memories for any of us.



The tulips were beautiful.


The frolicking was free.


The girls love their grandpa!


And each other!


The baby is willing to be in the baby carrier.


And four of us got new hats at the street fair.


Which is good, because some of us can really carry off a hat.
