Adventure Tuesday Spring Break – Kid Day Tulip Festival and Deception Pass State Park

It was spring break so we headed up north for a day of fun.

Mt. Vernon, WA has a Tulip Festival every year.  It had been 5 years since we had last gone there.  Tulip Festival Deception Pass-005 Tulip Festival Deception Pass-003

Not much had changed from a scenery stand point.

It was still beautiful, even the garbage truck was beautiful…

We then headed to Deception Pass State Park which was about 20 minutes away.  We headed to Rosario Beach where it was low tide for some great tide pool exploring.

We had our own private Blue Angels Air show and they practiced right over our head.  Nothing beats the power of an plane flight overhead.
