Tulips and Two Lips


Every Wednesday is date night. This week I actually took a half day off on Wednesday so it became a date day! Ben and I went and got my wedding dress altered (he didn't get to peek though), went to Panda Express, and then I took a much needed 3 hour nap. After I woke up, Ben came over to our little apartment and we decided to go to either The Museum of Ancient Life at Thanksgiving Point or the Tulip Festival. We opted for the Tulip Festival because it only runs for 2 or 3 weeks each year. The flowers were phenomenal--even better than last year! 


Pretty, pretty!

The rolling hill. How awesome would it be to roll down? Pretty awesome.

I want to see the finished product because it will be absolutely gorgeous.


 Ben was impressed with the rumbling waterfalls. When we walked over a bridge we could feel the water moving beneath our feet!

 Love the yellow flowers!

After the tulip festival we went to The Blue Lemon, one of our favorite places. This time however, we just got dessert. A sugar cookie and a vanilla wafer cupcake. From the picture, you can see,
 we devoured them both.


Yum.


That's all folks!
(for now)
