Olympic Sculpture Park

April 15, 2012 We went to Olympic sculpture park in downtown Seattle.  When they made the park they made a cute little salmon-friendly pocket beach.  We wanted to see the beach at low tide, but the water wasn't quite low enough so we mostly could only see rockweed and barnicles.  But the walk down and up to the beach was lovely.  Mom got to see the Space needle from closer up and check out the sculptures and little bit of the Seattle waterfront.

Skagit Valley Tulips

 April 14, 2012

My mom is visiting and we decided to take the trip up to the Skagit valley to see the tulips.  The bloom map said fields of tulips were blooming, but after driving around a while and seeing tons of lovely yellow fields of daffodils and none of tulips, we decided to head to Tulip Town to see their gardens.  The tulips there were in bloom (but not the big fields) and we had a wonderful time.  We took a tractor ride and walked around in the fields taking tons of pictures.
