Tulips are in a fierce battle with peonies for my favorite flower, but the tulips arrive first so what can I say? For the first time ever (only took 12 years) we visited the Woodburn Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival today. It was gorgeous and sunny and we all had a blast. We saw the beautiful blooms and shared an elephant ear. Lexi and Zara rode ponies and jumped on huge trampolines. Then we headed a little bit farther east to Silverton and had the BEST authentic Mexican food at Los Girasoles. I will find a reason to go back there for sure.
