In May we managed to make it out to Tulip Festival while Brian had time off around his ordination. What?! Did I miss that, too? Oh yeah, Brian finally got ordained to the priesthood… 😉 . Unfortunately, I didn’t get any photos of the event to share but it was a very full weekend, a very nice service with lots of friends and family attending, and other than Anna throwing up from all the excitement (yeesh!) it was a really great weekend! I even sewed my dress to wear to the ceremony — the day before…
Anyway… If you love flowers in full bloom on a warm spring day, next to a lake and canal surrounded by people with cameras and bicycles and strollers… Well, you should head over to Dow’s Lake in Ottawa in May!
This year marked the 60th anniversary of the Tulip Festival here in Ottawa and the flowers did not disappoint! We missed seeing all the arts vendors and the Dutch heritage displays from previous years with the changes to the festival format this year, but we definitely enjoyed our evening stroll.
And just a little bit of cotton candy as a treat to share. This was new to the Small Fry and he wasn’t quite sure what to do with the stuff. He ended up eating a little and then falling asleep covered in blue stickiness in his car seat on the way home. What a mess!
