It's Tulip Time
We went to Holland Saturday night to check out a little bit of Tulip Time. First, Chelsea had to check out the Spanish festival that was going on. She got some bonus points for Spanish class for going. Then we wanted to spend a lot more time at Tulip Festival except it started to rain. We went to Dutch village and walked around there for a while. These were some of the best pictures I could get before it really started to pour.
Here are the girls in front of a bunch of the wooden shoes that they were selling. Did you know that the Dutch made wooden shoes because of the scarcity of leather? I never knew that. I guess I better study up a bit more on my heritage!
Chelsea is marching in the parade today. I'm quite scared that she's going to get wet as they are predicting rain throughout the day. She's got to march again on Saturday in the big parade of bands. Hopefully, the weather will be better then. I'll try to get a picture of her in her uniform if she'll let me!
