BLOOM Tulip Festival | 2017

I was so bummed to miss going to one of the Tulip Festivals this year. There's one in Abbotsford called Bloom, and one in Chilliwack called Tulips of the Valley. Bloom was extended, so my mom and I packed up the kids on Monday morning and headed for Tulips! The weather was PERFECTLY cloudy. It rained a bit on our drive there, so I actually ran to Michaels (well, 10 minutes out of the way) to pick up a clear umbrella I had seen there the day before, but then of course it stopped raining, haha. Last year it was bright afternoon sun when we went, so I was really grateful for the clouds!

My oldest skipped school to come. I asked her if she wanted to go to school when we got back, and she said NO (of course) so we hung out at home after. Shhh, don't tell her teacher. They were so excited to go! 

I also attempted to get a few photos with me and the kids.... NOPE.
