Friday night we ventured to Pella for the annual Tulip Time festival held each year during the first weekend of May. The tulips were beautiful, unfortunately the weather was not as you can see from the hoodies and blankets!
No trip to Tulip Time is complete without a little Dutch treat. After a quick walk along the main store fronts, we stopped at Smokey Row Coffee for Dutch Letters, hot cocoa, and coffee.
We met up with our friends Shannon, Allen, Maggie, and Tommy and were lucky to find a sheltered spot out of the wind for the lighted parade.
The kids had a blast watching and waving.
Fun was had by all, even with the cool temps. Fingers crossed that next year we'll be able to enjoy the festivities sans blankets!
